So I’ve had the flu, no I don’t mean cold, I mean flat out in bed for a fortnight unable to move feeling like death flu. The other half has said that they have never seen me look so ill even after I had my appendix out, Mind you the fact that my TSH is 58 at the moment I don’t suppose is helping, yes that’s 58 not 5.8 hay but it’s better than it was, a few months ago it was 69.7 anyway as I was demented to get out of the house yesterday I went for a walk even though I knew I wasn’t up to it and I ended up catching a runaway horse, it could only happen to me!! What can I say I was hero! Sorry you really didn’t need to know that, So I’ve only ever had one flu shot and it made me feel really odd, so I’ve not bothered since then, but I honestly think if I’d been ten years older this virus would have done for me, so I’m really thinking about taking up the shots, but perhaps I’ve been so ill as it’s been on top of my undertreated Thyroid? Do undertreated Thyroids make things like flu and colds worse do you think, and should I take up the offer of the flu shots?
