    Go to your local vitamin shop and pick up some oil of oregano. It comes in a little glass bottle with a dropper. Take 2-3 drops on your tongue about every 3 weeks. I have not had the flu in over 4 years.
    I swear by the stuff!

    Are you a smoker? That never helps.

    No not a smoker. That sounds like some good stuff, I'll have to try it.

    That's what I'm saying. Maybe it'll actually do something.

    That sucks. The first year I decide not to get a flu shot and then this happens. I bet I'll take any shot they give me next year.

    I had a flu shot, and still got very sick with flu like symptoms....I missed a week of work or more...3 others got it including our supervisor....we think an intern gave it to us.

    I worked in an area that was quarantined for a GI virus also and it fucked me up to the point of exhaustion and almost passing out.....first flu, then bubblegutz

    View the build. Too much to list.
    I haven't contracted the flu once in my entire life. And I don't get those stupid shots.
