Scared of the swine flu!
« on: January 09, 2014, 10:48:39 PM »
  Hi everyone  :action-smiley-065:.  It's that time of the year again for flu.  But they say swine flu is back again!  I can't get the vacine because I would get really sick from flu shots.  I'm thinking what if I will get really sick from this one since nobody in the family got it back in 2009.  On the news people are being put in the ICU and on vendilators!  More symptoms than regular flu so I herd!  Could I be effected more since i'm skinny?  Last thing I want is hospital staff rushing to save me!  Like the movie outbreak!  :sick0002:  :laugh3:.  Did anyone recover from this?  And what were your symptoms?

I personally know of a confirmed case in a 70 year old man with COPD. He ended up getting pneumonia in both lungs because of it. He got treated and is fine now. Try to chill out, the media loves a horror story.
