It took out my family. I’m a very healthy guy in my mid-30’s and I got a flu shot. I had it for 3 weeks, started as flu symptoms then moved to my chest like bronchitis and ended with puking my brains out.

My 3 month old son got sick too. Needless to say it was a very scary time for us.

Thankfully, we survived.

I rarely get sick enough to need antibiotics....

..but whatever 'it' is.....that's going around....it made me very ill and I needed 2 rounds of antibiotics, plus a 10 day regimen of low dosage steroids to get rid of it.....

..the coughing was terrible...

..even after a month, I still have a lingering cough.

My son is now 2 1/2. We’ve been giving him probiotics since he was an infant. You can’t get enough of them, so they are not at all harmful. We poured the capsules into his bottle, and I took extra as well (I expressed milk and bottle fed). It does make a difference with the immune system.
