    Default Got Vaccinated Today

    Just got back from getting the Moderna vaccine. Booster shot to follow on 4/5.

    I barely felt the stick at all... it's much less painful than a flu shot. Or any other shot for that matter. I had to ask the nurse if that was it.... that's pretty nice.

    Something I wasn't prepared for was the speed rush it gave me. It's similar to an adrenaline or cocaine rush and I'm still feeling it an hour later. There's something in the cocktail that's a powerful stimulant.

    Shar is holding off for now. She's got enough issues going without introducing an experimental drug into the mix.

    So I should plan this shot around a home project?

    I would recommend a painting project that has an emphasis on creative flair. Wear a hat, though, unless you want interesting hair.

    No adrenaline for me from the Pfizer shot either time. I wonder if Moderna is different that way, or if it’s an individual thing...

    Could be. I was feverish and thrashing all night, guess I kept Shar up. My body definitely responded forcefully to that and immune system went to Defcon 4.

    Feeling fine today. Word is that the 2nd Moderna shot is the riskier one.

    BTW, if the Democrats get their way, that CDC Card I posted will be your travel papers.

    My take is those that take the vaccine shot are doing what they think is best.
    I have no problem at all with that decision.
    However, I stand alone-- as is my usual way.
    I've decided to wait and see for as long as possible.
    And only if forced at the point of a gun -do I yield to submit to that vaccine shot.
    And maybe not even then.. Yes, that is me and my way.
    As I am of Viking, German, English/Irish bloodlines-thus not ever prone to yielding or submitting
    to anything I deem to be quite likely unnecessary or potentially bad for me....
    And that way/decision to the point of dedicated and unrelenting ferocious battle.
    Such is and always has been either the great strength or else the deep curse that I carry.

    I took the Pfizer shot and had a reaction similar to what NT described. The immunization site was a sight to behold. There had to be at least 2,000 cars that started in three lanes, then spread out like a huge set of toll booths: Round 'em up and move 'em on, Texas style. I question whether people should be driving when disoriented like that. However, in Texas, it would be hard to notice the difference.

    I forgot this reply

    So, you're telling me that no only do I get a speed rush, I'm also going to grow hair?
