    Ok, some of you may have noticed my "eating for cold/fever" thread. My DD had brought home a nice mild case of strep. I of course, not being able to turn down her generous offer of sickness obliged with a mild case of my own.

    So, 6 days of low grade fever and massive pig outs later, I decide it's time for antibiotics (which I try not to use but I will be seeing my elderly grandmother soon). Now here's where it gets interesting, I get to the dr office and am asked to use "the pariah mask" while I sit in the waiting room. This swine flu hysteria is over the moon!

    Now the funny part is that I was diagnosed as a strep carrier LOL! So the mark of the pariah was well founded, however the stigma misplaced. In any event, perhaps the mask kept me from catching anything else!

    That doctor on the Today show, Nancy someone, said that the masks do absolutely no good. I always thought 95% of all communicable diseases are transferred by the hands.
