I'm in the US military and service members receive mandatory annual flu shots. I got mine today and opted for the nasal myst. Turns out the nasal myst is a live but "weakened" strain of the flu virus. If you get the traditional flu shot (needle) you will receive a dead virus. Had I known the difference I would have gone for the needle. So now I have a mandatory flu virus spreading in my body. Luckily I did all my weight lifting and crossfit for the week so I won't be missing any workouts over NYE weekend. I'm still pissed though that I'm gonna be sick... Besides taking off from the gym for the next 4 days I'm gonna try to OD on vitamin C and pray this flu doesn't hit too hard. Ughhh it has only been 5 hours but I already feel achey and fatigued. Then again I did crossfit 3 hours ago lol. Happy New Year, RJ.
