    I had a bad ME relapse from getting whooping cough in 2010. It wasn't even recognised or diagnosed by the Dr, but a friend suggested it to me, and having researched it on the net, I realised that is what I had.

    Before I had it, I was able to work and was mildly affected. I haven't been able to get back to the point I was at since then, though I am still working on it.

    I recieved a Tdap vaccine in 2/2013 when I was still fully functional with only very mild symptoms. I began to spiral downward after it and still haven't bounced back to where I was pre vaccination. I just wanted a tetnus shot since I work with horses a lot and they told me you can't get just the tetnus part.

    I was due for a Tetanus shot 6 years ago! I cannot get/find it without thimerosal, asked a few times. Oh well, that TMJ seems to be holding its' own. LOL

    I used to get the flu shot before becoming ill, I don't bother with that anymore either!

    I am also overdue for a tetanus booster. I had the whooping cough and diptheria with the last one.

    When I asked my doctor for the tetanus, she said she did not do it. A nearby pharmacy said that they had it and gave me a multi-page form to fill out that asked for way too much personal information. The plan is the check with the Health Department next. I got a flu shot there once and do not recall much paperwork.
