Dena,

To answer your question, the swine flu has the word SWINE in front of the word flu, and the everyday flu has nothing in front of the word flu.

Does that clear it up for you?

I actually had the flu last week. I still have a little junk in my lungs. Hopefully, this means that I won't get sick this winter. Nothing like getting it over early.

The funny thing is I looked up Swine flu and regular flu and I couldn't figure out what the difference between the two were. Exact same symptoms.

So, how is a person suppose to know if they have just the normal everyday flu that most of us have had a half a dozen times in our life and swine flu? And just why is Swine flu considered so deadly? From what I read, most people recover from it.

Anyhoo, the answer to the question, is "Yes, I have"

She is a peer counselor who works with mother's learning to breastfeed!

Perhaps she's a peer counselor who happens to be breast-feeding...?

It really is a little too early to be getting a flu shot now. I understand that the media hypes but kids, lets not get the panties in a bunch. Most doctors will say wait until mid-late October

This rain is not good for not getting the flu. We got soaked this morning. I hope I don't get dove flu.

I like to be classified by my job and my job only. Is that a job? That is kinda funny. I grow cells up from bacteria in a lab in NYC. Hi Cary, you would remember me but not my name. France was fun in '90?

There were 5 cases of Swine flu in April that died in Brooklyn and Queens. I think there were a few in Montana as well. Be careful.

I haven't ben effected bu anything that I know of. I always wondered what that girls name was. Let's see 825 or 807? I am still searching. I will make it back that way maybe next summer to try to find out again. Geez, 18 years is a long time to bu effected by something so drastically that nobody could find the cure for. I guess I have been effected bu something, not quite sure what ails me.
