    Everything I have read on says that its not as bad as the regular flu, the people who do die from it have underlying conditions, and more people die from the regular flu than the swine flu. My 11 year old granddaughter just had a nose swab today to get tested, as she has the chest thing going on. No results yet.

    We need to take antioxidants, research taking D-3, because its wonderful supposidely for getting us through any kind of flu, lots of Vit. C and fluids. I take all of it, and so far so good, and so does my 9 year old. So far so good for him too, and there have been several kids in his class who have went down with the sore throat thing last week.

    Just had it.

    I knew I was sick, but it wasn't obvious. It wasn't nearly as bad as the regular flu if you ask me.

    My problem is that this flu is more focused on attacking your respiratory system. It inflamed my reactive airway disorder which gave me bronchitis. [​IMG]

    Even with all this, I was only out for half a week.

    Can someone tell me how the vaccine works? I know there is no needle and they stick it up the nose. How exactly does the vaccine work?

    We're finally getting vaccines here. 1000 shots, and 800 Flu Mist. Flu Mist is the live vaccine. If one of my kids gets the live vaccine, does he then pass on that virus to those around him??????

    If you check out the symptoms of the swine flu and every other flu they are exactly the same. All through history there have been bird human and swine flu. Throughout history they have all mutated to effect other species between the species that can get the flu. This particular strain of swine flu has not killed an ordinarily large amount of people instead it has been quite the opposite. The only reason they are hyping the bird and swine flu up so much is propaganda because they want us to be nonresistant to the future implementation of NAIS.

    H1N1 will get you if....

    old age doesn't
    you get hit by lightning
    you get run over by a bus or taxi cab
    A wild animal or pit bull tears you to pieces

    etc etc etc. Every year the CDC and the news media has to have some big scare. MJ and the ballon boy only carry so far.

    Make a pot of chicken soup and don't watch the news
