It's all the talk these days. People rushing to their doctor's office and emergency rooms scared they have it. But truly who wouldn't. It's scary!!! As I have had a few conversations with friends and family I just continue to think about it more. Yesterday I was talking to my Sister-in-law who is a nurse in ICU, she was saying how almost everyone coming into the hospital are so badly sick that they are being put on ventilators. Many are healthy people passing away.
Last week on Facebook this video was posted from Youtube. It's very sad and scary. I am not posting it telling you to not get the vaccine. I am just saying weigh all the options. Do you get the vaccine and have a severe side effect or do you take you chances and hope that you don't get the swine flu?
While we don't know what we are going to do about the vaccine. There are a few things we will be doing to try and reduce our risks.
Washing hands more (that's a no brainer)
Eating lots of fruits
Minimizing the trips that the kids make into the stores
The symptoms are much like the regular seasonal flu. Here are a list:
Coughing and/or sore throat
Head and/or body aches

I would love to know your opinion on this issue and what you are doing to stay healthy. Looking for to your comments.
