Purple is For Tetanus

Just wanted to show you what happened to my arm after my tetanus shot.  I woke up this morning with it.This shot was in combination tetanus and whooping cough vaccine.  Apparantly since 2004, whooping cough has made a come back.  They also effect babies before they’re vaccinated, so might as well, I guess.  It might be the combination that gave me this bruise.   It’s perfectly normal.

I was also told by a friend that if I rub the area where I was shot, my arm would be less sore.  It distributes the medicine faster.  But for me, it did nothing.  My arm doesn’t ache though, but if I touch my bruise, it hurts just like any other bruise.

I just can’t sleep on my side until that’s gone!
