Swine Flu
« on: November 02, 2009, 11:23:58 PM »
No, I'm not talking about Uncle Ernie taking a plane trip. ;D

Do you believe it is as bad as they say, or just hype?
Is the big push right before the health bill a coincidence or a left wing conspiicy?
Will you get the shot, or pass?

i have never had a flu shot.. won't start now.. pushing 62.. also work with the public everyday..some of them have actually said I'm sick but I got tired of staying home..  ::) I rarely shake hands anymore.. but if someone grabs mine, I'm polite.. and when they leave I go wash my hands,,

  I feel it's border line hype..  I still want to know the ingredients in it.. and as they have said so many times..  don't let a good crisis go to waste---

The only thing transparent about all this is the propaganda.

  Had my bout with it, lasted all of 48 hours, but it was a bad 48 hours.  I think more of what is thought to be swine flu is just the yearly run in with cold/flu season.  Will.

I think I had it last week.
Not sure. It was some kind of flu.
Very mild.
I was over it in a few days, and felt a little run down for a couple days after that.
Fine now.

Probably the mildest flu I ever had.

  Saw that one before, actually I can start mine right now,but sent my seat cover out to be made out of brown leather for the cost of shipping.  So I'd have to put something over the springs so I don't get my butt pinched.  Hmmm bet I can find something that will do.  Will.

   No the pit bull usually steals that at night, wouldn't want a wrestling match with him over it.  Actually I could just cut a top pattern out and make one from some scrap leather I have around here and cowboy lash it to the frame.  Maybe I'll do that tomorrow when I get home from work.

  Thyanks for the idea Scotty.  Will.

  The culprit here is always the pit bull, AKA Buster Brown, if the biscuit box has been raided it's the Bassett Hound, and other general mayhem is the Rott.  I know their MO's.  Will.

Probably for most of you guys it is not a big worry.  Adults who are not extremely young or extremely old appear to mostly get a fairly mild version of the disease.  People in higher risk groups, however, are getting it bad enough to require ICU at higher rates than with seasonal flu, so yeah I take it seriously.  They're not pushing vaccination for you guys unless you are a caregiver for the elderly or children, or a healthcare worker, so I don't know what your issue is

As for myself, I'm getting the vaccination as soon as I can find a place that has it (or still has it by the time I get there).  I have pulmonary sarcoidosis, and while I am thankfully no longer on immunosuppressive drugs, I am at high risk for contracting pneumonia if I get sick.  Two years ago I didn't get my flu shot and contracted both type A and B flu during the flu season.  I just barely esacaped hospitilazaion each time.

If you find it to by hype, more power to you - don't get vaccinated.  Don't, however, write off as hype what may indeed be a significant risk for other groups of people.

In my city, about a dozen schoolchildren and one principal died of swine flu at the end of the previous schoolyear. Already in this schoolyear hundreds of schoolchildren have become dangerously ill and hospitalized, with more deaths, plus at-risk groups like pregnant women are presenting with swine flu more and more frequently. So, it's real.

I haven't gotten a flu shot since the mid-1990s, and since then have only contracted it once. However, I'm planning to get it this year in order to avoid spreading it to other people. My wife is pregnant, so she'll be getting it too.

It's so easy to ignorant, oops, ignore a potential problem if you just RIGHT it off as a LEFT wing conspiracy.

Among my bag of pills are Prograf and Cellcept.  I have no immune system.
I'm still not getting a vaccination.  I think the general populace has come to expect way too much from the government.  They're all incompetant, lying, fools who everyone has given power to.
