swine flu is NOT that bad.

just wash your damn hands, make sure you keep yourself clean.
and as you usually would, least i hope so, avoid getting coughed and sneezed on.
who likes that anyway?

"Like seasonal flu, swine flu in humans can vary in severity from mild to severe. Between 2005 until January 2009, 12 human cases of swine flu were detected in the U.S. with no deaths occurring. However, swine flu infection can be serious. In September 1988, a previously healthy 32-year-old pregnant woman in Wisconsin was hospitalized for pneumonia after being infected with swine flu and died 8 days later. A swine flu outbreak in Fort Dix, New Jersey occurred in 1976 that caused more than 200 cases with serious illness in several people and one death."

umm.. DUH.
just make sure you stay healthy like you normally do every day, just like you did before this hype.
the media just LOVES mass hysteria. don't buy into it.
cuz stress will give you major hypochondria.​.​.​(​where you get the symptoms of being sick, but you really aren't.)
