There has been a lot of talk about the flu lately.  The CDC has called it an epidemic.  Doug posted a list of places you can get your flu shot if you would like one.  I haven't gotten mine and don't intend to.  I'm knocking on wood as I type this, but I haven't gotten the flu shot in over 20 years and I've been fine.  It is your choice though.

I won't say that I haven't felt ill in that time.  It happens to all of us.  Something knocks you down for a couple of days sometimes.  I've never been one to see a doctor unless I'm on my death bed or something goes wrong with my voice.  The answer is usually, "It is a virus and you have to let it run its course."  I don't like wasting my co-pay on that.

I know other people that will see their physician at the first sign of a sniffle.  Maybe they like reading outdated magazines in the waiting room while the doctor runs an hour late because of the other "snifflers" that are there.

What about you?  Take our poll and let us know.
