Before this illness showed up I was working 60 hours a week at Amazon.com as a digital technology specialist, a job I proudly held since 2006. I was one of the first people to do Unbox, mp3s, amazon anytime upgrades, ps3, xbox, I was trained in like over 400 things for this company. What I remember and I cant remember the exact year it was either 2009 or 2010, I have the proof dont worry. I remember an email coming to the people on the floor about a new flu called swine flu H1N1 and the vaccines were being offered to people in the break room. At the time I had no desire to get a vaccine. I was perfectly healthy.
Then I started seeing articles in the newspaper about people locally dying from this flu. since I worked in a building with 900 people from the neighboring cities I finally opted to get this flu shot. I didnt know what to expect, i walked to the break room and a nurse was there waiting with a long needle, she pressed the needle into my arm straight to my tricep bicep meeting point. I was like wow that was fast, but I remember falling a couple times walking back to my work space. I talked to my area manager and said I feel sick, they told me its normal for that feeling after a vaccine. I wish I would have worried more after that my life completely changed…..
