    Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Personally I think the whole Swine Flu thing has been blown out of all proportion. Different strains of flu come and go every year. Each year people die from flu. Mostly we don't hear about them. Next year we might have Alien Flu brought by visiting alien space craft. That might be more newsworthy.

    It's a bit like the Dengue Fever panic up here. The media were saying it was the worst outbreak since the 1930's. Every property and home was inspected to make sure there were no dengue mozzies breeding there. The funny side to our inspection was the fact they noted how clean my dog water bowls were. They said some pet water bowls they had seen were coated in green slime and full of mozzie larva. Any way I think only one person died from it this season and that was an elderly person with a compromised immune system.

    Stay warm, drink plenty of water and load your body with as much vitamin c as it will take without giving you the runs.

    Oh puggerup, I hope you are feeling better soon! Having the flu is always nasty and one feels so shit... But do what Deerhound already said and if it gets to bad drink a Lemsip (best invention in the world ).

    The exaggerations concerning swine flu are really pissing me off (am I aloud to write that here??). Every year thousands of people die due to infection with the seasonal flu virus and this is not even mentioned in the media. But the way the media is talking about swine flu, it sounds like it is the end of the world. The fact that the WHO raised it to stage 6 only means that it is distributed around the world. It doesn't necessarily mean its dangerous. Herpes virus ist also stage 6... Sorry, but I am really annoyed by the way the media is handling it. They only tell half-truths..

    I agree that it has been blown way out of proportion. It's insane! Over 20,000 people day every year from the regular flu, but we just don't hear about it. And don't you think it's weird that, in China, when it was the Year of the Bird, Bird Flu broke out? And this year in China it's the Year of the Pig ...... hmmmm. Got me thinking!

    Someone here is NSW was diagnosed with Swine Flu and he said he has had worse papercuts lol. Our whole family just had a cold, but I don't think it was the Flu, and I still have a cough, but my flu symptoms have gone away.
