I've got Influenza-A. Mind you, that's what I thought I was getting inoculated against.
I've had four flu shots in my life. Every time, I've come down with the flu afterwards. Years I've not had a flu shot, I've been fine.
Apparently, I'm the baseline anomaly that the textbooks wave off.
Oh, right, it's end of the month.
Time to purge history from google.
