Flu Shots Are No Fun

Noah and I went to get our flu shots this afternoon. Can I just say “ouch”? Seriously, I know I’m a wimp because my son told me I was. He was all “I’m so big and cool and this is no big deal” and I’m all “Whatever, I hate shots and needles and anything that is going to protrude into my bicep”. I even asked the nurse if I had to get the shot in my muscle or if she could shoot it into my fat. Plenty of that around. So, I’m curious. Am I the only wimp when it comes to flu shots, or any other shot for that matter, or do some of you hate them, too? Do share.

  1. AWWW! Mama Cindy… how cute… You really don’t like shots?!?!
    I’m one of those weird, crazy people. I really don’t mind shots, now I don’t think i could ever give shots, but don’t mind getting them, even giving blood…it doesn’t really phase me. I don’t like the sore arm later though.

  2. I only get shots for three reasons: pregnancy, giving birth and near death.

    That’s it. No exceptions. I don’t care if I am a wimp.

  3. Does anyone LIKE shots! No flu shot for me. If I get it, I’ll just tough it out. No antibiotics…NOTHIN’! I don’t think I will. The last time I had the flu I was 9, maybe 10. So, no shot for me if I don’t need it! WHOO-HOO!
