proverb, I had a reaction to a flu shot several yrs ago that had thimerisol in it. a mercury based preservative that is in alot of vaccines. I found out after the fact that it had thimersol in it. my arm blew up like a balloon and itched. I have refused to take the hep b vaccine since then. i found out I was allergic to thimerol by using a contact lens soln with it in there and it broke my eyes out. skee, I am so glad you shared the disablility info. got me scared my income has been cut in half over the last 2 yrs. thank god i have a hubby that cooks and cleans. i kept thinking i would get better but it seems i am going the other way.
