The Obligatory H1N1 Post

Honestly, I'm not too fussed about it. There has been nothing to convice me that it is any worse than the normal flu. And while I by no means want the flu, I'm not too concerned about it being of the "swine" variety.

I don't want the flu shot or the swine flu shot, although I know I should get them and I probably will. I've had one bad experience with a flu shot where I all of a sudden developed a fever of over 103 and felt like I was in my last days. I've had flu shots where that has not happened, but still I'm not too happy that it happened even once.

But I guess I should be careful, because I am considered immunocompromised. But I'm not going to go crazy over it. All I can say is to take precautions: wash your hands, don't go near sick people, etc. But don't stop living life just because it is out there.
