    So far, I haven't gotten it. I just hope that I don't catch it this winter. I really can't afford to miss class.

    Actual Swine Flu, or normal flu with paranoia induced Swine titling?

    For my sister the doctor seemed to think it was the Swiney kind. They kept her for a few days and then we isolated her at home for another five. But who knows? People can be so crazy over these things.

    I'm getting my vaccinations the second the grocery store's pharmacy gets them in. I mean, this CAN be treated, but this disease is becoming a major epidemic.

    My doctor said I have all the symptoms of swine flu, but without a test kit she can't be 100% sure. She has seen others with the same symptoms test postive, so she' just being cautious. She gave me a scrip for Tamiflu, and suggested I stay away from my kids untill i feel better.

    My wife is a preschool teacher and one of her little snotballs had it. I should tell my manager I've likely been exposed so next week I can call in sick and play Warcraft.

    My school has had at least 1/2 of 1000 kids sick with it. Needless to say, not a lot going on in class right now.

    You do realize that the last time there was a swine flu 'outbreak' in 70s, that the vaccinations killed more people than the actual flu?

    Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is as it appears no more deadly than the regular flu. It is just a different strain. Call me when the 1918 flu strain reappears.

    Glad your feeling better, however slightly. I haven't had sort of flu in a couple years but,I would always get it when I was younger.

    This is what worries me. My doctor told me I should get the vaccination as soon as possible, and I told him that I would do it when I trust it. The test subjects I here had major nerve damage.

    Yea, gets rid of the swine flu by causing another problem. Genius!

    I'll get the regular flu shot as I always do, but I'm waiting to hear more info on the Swine flu vaccine before I get that one.

    I don't bother getting flu shots. I have never had the flu. The worst thing I ever had was some sort of bacterial infection that was more like a cold that wouldn't go away until I got anti-biotics from my family doctor.
