Swine Flu

My throat has been starting to hurt the last couple of hours, and the more I think about it, the more certain I am that I have Swine Flu.

I was at Walmart yesterday and that would be the most likely place for me to contract it.

Although being quarantined sounds not-so-bad-at-all, I'm hoping it is all in my head and just a symptom of watching too much news.

Not even kidding about this...I never get sick...I mean never (and I teach school!), but since the swine flu outbreak, my throat and ears are killing me...I'm stopped up and have a terrible cough. Too scared to go to the doctor though, because I don't want them to tell me that its swine flu!

I am sick as a dog too--coughing something fierce. I am in hell

Seriously, gargle with some hydrogen peroxide! Also put a couple of drops of hp in each of your ears. Then gargle with an ounce or two of water with a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper in it. That should kill any virus trying to take hold in your throat.

All natural anitvirals are your best bet. Think garlic, grapefruit seed extract, colloidial silver.

The media is making SUCH a huge deal out of swine flu. The baby that died in Texas had JUST gotten to the US from Mexico and contracted it there and just happened to die here (thanks). What everyone outside of affected areas is experiencing is psychosomatic.

I agree, it's mass hysteria at it's finest. At least the media has moved on from Miss California, I guess. I did read that a crazy, crazy (that's as exact as I can recall) number of people die from seasonal influenza each year and we don't freak out about that. It's still a little scary though, because it's new.

My throat hasn't really gotten much worse and as of right now, I'm predicting I'm going to make it. I have instructed Big Kid to go back to OCD-like hand washing, which he's happy to do. We'll shop at Target in the meantime as a preventative measure. ;-)

My hubs flew out of town Sat and he said he was pretty sure he was gonna get it from the plane ride:)

Someone shot me the statistic that 13,000 people have died from the regular old flu since January.....

I haven't verified it, but still. I'm totally over the media. I think they are a bunch of nutjobs.

The news here reported that they thought a plane coming into DC had some passengers that were sick with the swine flu. Turns out they were just drunk.

I'm so sick and tired of the day-to-day doldrums of life, that making everyone stay home for a week, kicking back and watching TV and just hanging out sounds like a welcome break.

Can I just put our family on quarantine just for the heck of it?

I told you walmart is the place people go to die :)
