A survivor’s tale…

As one of mere millions of survivors of the H1N1 (swine) flu, I wanted to tell you what it was like.  Now I didn’t get mine specifically tested, but since over 90% of flu cases in Utah are the H1N1 virus, statistically, it’s probable that mine was this “deadly” virus.

It was just like the normal flu.  Exactly like it.  Sneezing: same.  Sniffles: same.  Chills: same.  Fever: same.  What did I do to survive?  Well, I took cold meds because that’s what I bought, because I thought it was the cold at first.  And when it hit its worst, I stayed home for a day and a half and rested.  And I lived.  And so can you if you get it too.  Just stay home and rest, drink plenty of fluids, take some ibuprophen for your fever, and have a good blanket.  That’s about all you can do.  That’s about all you need to do.  I also took some cough medicine and some antihistamines.  Those can help too.

The swine flu is just another flu.  Everyone will probably get it, and then everyone will be immune.  Diseases are fun like that.

  1. I had always suspected there was something very…normal about this super-hyped-up swine flu. I don’t see what the big deal is, besides that everyone gets the flu. But hey, if we all get it, we won’t have to worry about getting it anymore, right?

    Glad you survived.
