In 1976 the military was given Swine flu shot plus the regular flu shot. I still contend they used us to experiment. As you know there were several cases of GB and the next year it was stopped. With my military I have not missed a flu shot for 40 years and didn’t want to stop. This year they mixed H1N1 with the regular medicine. I was concerned and I ask both my Neuroligist and Hemotoligist if they thought it safe. They were of the opinion that advances have been made and recommended to take it. I did not have a problem and will continue to take it. It however is a difficult choice each have to make.
Tim-I guess the hardest thing for me to have had to accept is the unknown of when I might progress worse or be wheel chair bound, and you know what? For awhile I was asking several neuro’s their opinion and guess what? All were different. Ask 5 people how to wash a car? You get 5 different answers. I was impatient; I wanted all the answers; I wanted my control back; I wanted to plan things out. And it just doesn’t happen to work out to what I want; frustrating? You bet it is. You must just take care of today. Sure there are a lot of things you need to figure out, but that will come. Just take care of today. One question about the tomorrows though-do you have an appt with Julie’s doc at JH earlier than Oct?
Hope your mom is doing better Tim.
