  • Will I get tetanus?

    I got rusty water on an open cut from a pipe outside, which happened to be rusty. It stung my cut, which is what worries me the most. I got my tdap shot in 2014, so it should still be good.

  • Will I get tetanus please help me PLEASE IM SCARED?

    Best answer: The sole of your foot is very sensitive. I don't think you have tetanus. At the worse you may have a mild infection. The oil on the cone could be causing a reaction. Keep the wounds clean, use peroxide, dry and let air get to it as much as you can.

    Best answer: You can try but she’s still your parent, her insurance her words final unless you go so far as to sue your parents, then you need money and may loose if you ever get that far....

    That being said... there are not series of flu shots, there’s the yearly flu vaccine to help you not be as sick from the staring going around that particular year.

    Facts about flu shots, they can hurt or make your arm sore or warm for the day, not a big deal, it’s simply not just getting the skin punctured though. If you are sensitivr to eggs or allergic it’s not recommended that you get the shoes due to the allergic reaction.

    You can have a reaction to the shot but it’s pretty rare, you can still get the flu but usually not as bad as if you had not received the shot, there are no guarantees either, like you said you take public transportation and say someone from half way across the world rides next to you that virus while the same isn’t exactly identical so like I said before you will still come down with it but not as bad.

    Flu shots DO NOT cause aids, retardation, ADD/ADHD, measles, chickenpox, tetanus, staff infections (unless your rubbing in filth immediately after the shot) nor does it cause autism.

    As for your self diagnosis of autism if you have friends at school, if you can e press yourself to others, express your needs, can put your thoughts and feelings into words, go to a regular school, not special ed classes all day long, not receipting concilinf etc then chances re your not autistic.

    My daughter has problems making eye contact, is frozen almost paralyzed in crowds, cannot express herself and her needs most of the time, is nervous in unfamiliar places and pretty much doesn’t talk about things unless you can get a good conversation started. Had her tested many times yet they say she falls within normal values, may have a social mixing problem with reluctance because of lack of self confidence but she did well in school.

    Trying to guess what you may or may not have cannot be done, I was finally diagnosed as impulsive disorder ADD/ADHD with profound depression at age of 55... also was diagnosed with dyslexia and a learning disability... fun to know once I’ve grown up, had kids, have grandkids. Doesn’t mean anything except why it’s harder for me to simply sit down, open a book and read instructions. Between the scrambled words and so many things being talked about at the same time I just faked it and guessed at things most of my life. Now I force myself to pay attention write things down as I red and get things done. Being diagnosed with something gives you no excuse to do or not do things, it just lets you know you need to adjust yourself to fit into society, because after school there is no special education, councilers and special needs programs to help you throughout life for free. You need to find programs if you need the help, they don’t automatically assign someone to you for life unless you are barley functioning.

    You sound like a very smart well educated girl from your post. Keep up the good work, and look up what the flu shots can do for you, make a list of why you want them, ask your mom to talk to you about an adult subject, don’t whine and cry at her, simply tell her your worried about being sick for a week to 10 days.

    People your age are strong enough to have the flu without severe problems. If you had asthma, a heart problem. Kidney failure etc the flu could cause complicTions but even if you were autistic, all your internal organs are functioning normally so you would just be miserable if you body didn’t resist the virus for up to 10 days.

    Saying that please look at the side effects the shots can give, when you see your moms point of view yours may change some. Keep in mind when they say children, they are talking about older toddlers to 10 year olds roughly. Your past the child stage and are at teenager. There is a difference.

  • How to make flu shots painless?

    Best answer: The needle isn't what hurts--it's the vaccine going in that does. But that is just a little bit of discomfort. However, there are still those who don't like needles. If you're one of them, bring a teddy bear or something soft to hang onto. My sister does this at the dentist and one of her co-workers... show more

If you're one of them, bring a teddy bear or something soft to hang onto. My sister does this at the dentist and one of her co-workers even asked to borrow her dentist bear! There's no shame in that. You can also treat yourself to something like ice cream after as a reward. That is how I've gotten my 8 year-old to telling me to get or flu shots each September. Flu shot and then ice cream. Totally worth it! 👍

  • Do you really think flu shots work or is it a mind game?

    Best answer: Yes, I know they work. My brother is an immunologist. If your friends really got a flu shot, and really contracted the flu anyway, then they contracted a strain other than the one they were vaccinated against.

  • Do you get yearly flu shots? Why? Nobody needs those! I have never had a flu shot, yet I almost never get the flu and I never catch colds!?

    What's my secret for avoiding colds and the flu??? Avoid people like the plague, no pun intended! It's very easy to catch a cold or the flu or other diseases when you spend too much time around people. They're not even worth it!

    even though I have repeatedly posted RELIABLE sources (IE HUD) that say an ESA is NOT A PET, but rather an ASSISTANCE animal, people keep saying I am wrong and they are legally a pet. Legally, the term ESA ONLY applies to a person with a disability that needs an assistance animal to mitigate the disability, it does NOT apply to all household animals like some people have said. This is one source that says ESA is NOT A PET. is it RELIABLE? if not what is a RELIABLE source that says an ESA is a pet? https://www.animallaw.info/article/faqs-... An emotional support animal is a type of assistance animal that is recognized as a "reasonable accommodation" for a person with a disability under the federal Fair Housing Act (FHAct, 42 U.S.C.A. 3601 et seq.). The assistance animal is not a pet according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD is the agency that oversees the FHAct and investigates claims of housing discrimination.
