Well, I did get my shot yesterday, and I was surprised that it was so quick. I didn't even feel it, and it was one of those needles that retracted once it shot out. It was more like those little jabs you get from getting pricked on the finger for blood, only I was waiting for the little sting. Now all I have is a sore arm and I'm also a little tired. The tiredness hit me this afternoon.
Once I got it you were made to wait for 15 minutes at the front of the pharmacy (CVS) for any reaction that might follow. I was fine, and I met 2 other people who were also waiting. It looks like we were all starved for conversation because that 15 minutes turned out more like 40 minutes. I met the young woman first. She had not shopped in a long time and began to talk to me out of the blue, saying how good it was to be out and talking to people. I agreed, and we shared some info on our lives. It turned out she had had cancer and was recuperating from it. Then the man who was sitting also began to talk, and before you knew it we were talking movies, pets, living areas (the man told me I had a Boston accent, haha), and other stuff. We're going to meet on the same date for the 2nd shot. I really had a good time just talking with strangers.
I never knew how much I missed being out with a small group! I am quite a talker and my girls have always said I was like that.
