I personally believe that once it starts spreading it will spread, regardless of extra special attention being payed to personal hygiene.

It's almost like saying, without protection, you wont catch HIV if you have a shower straight after sex.

We went out last night; when I pulled out the hand stuff and offered some to our waitress, she just gigled nervously. But she did take it! I tried to make light of the offfering but I feel bad now, like I offended her. Especially since it all seems to just be some kind of a "joke" now when mentioned in polite company. Sad.

This is a problem -
We are made to feel uncomfortable when doing the right thing.
Protecting ourselves and others.
We are easy targets for that reason.
It's like the "don't wear a mask" you'll scare people.

Keep on doing the right thing. Be proactive -
use your critcal thinking skills and be a leader -
It'll catch on - it always does -
Remember when people laughed at vegetarianism -
and recyclingand the whole green thing?
Ah - and once the world was flat...

We're just a little slow - and don't forget we have the powers that be -
keeping us snuggly in a little box that says -
"question nothing - and stop thinking for yourselves"
All the more reason to do the opposite.

You are exactly right.But it does get hard to do even when trying to keep family safe. I am experiencing this as of right now, so I guess this is as good a time as any to explain, besides the obvious, why infectious disease really alarms me. I rarely tell this story and haven't publcly here because I never thought I would be posting on this forum. Heck, I don't even have an avatar yet. Anyway.

My little brother was diagnosed with HIV in 1992. He has been doing well with the exception of the many other strange illness' that comes with the territory. Many times we almost lost him. I carry a lot of guilt because at the time of diagnosis, I was in a position to be more observant of his surroundings and activities, but was off on my own and living "life's adventures" too. He has been studied by many teams of infectious doctors over the years because he HAS been so close to death, and they study him to see what they might learn. I just tell him he is here for a reason, and maybe it is nothing more than to be my little brother!

Well, of COURSE he is now telling me that he is about to move to the inner city and be with his "own kind" again. I have been talking to him and sounding the alarm over this new flu until I now fel like a complete nut case. He actually said 'I know, I know, quit being so paranoid! And I'M NOT going to wear a stupid mask and freak people out!! I promise I'll be careful and it really isn't a big deal!". WHAT!?

I guess what I am trying to say is that even your own family, and even ones who are the most compromised, can make you feel like an alarmist wierdo. I am beside mysalf because I can almost bet you we will be going through another "worry, save and rescue" situation with him. I'm afraid this flu would be the straw that breaks the camel's back and I'm not ready to see that...he has come so far!! (will I ever get over the "Nervous Nellie" syndrome with him?!!)

So, thanks for your reply Spinkyboo, and the kudos for trying to do the right thing in the face of ridicule. ( I can take the ridicule though. Just not the thought of him getting sick again when I did nothing to warn him)

TY,
FMF

Swine Flu: Learning From Past Pandemics
New Flu Shares Features of Deadly Flu Pandemics
www.webmd.com...

May 8, 2009 - The H1N1 swine flu outbreak has a lot in common with flu pandemics of the 20th century -- including its direct ancestor, the killer 1918 H1N1 flu.

Like the first wave of the 1918 flu, the U.S. outbreak of H1N1 swine flu has been relatively mild.

Like the 1918 flu, which first appeared in the U.S. summer, the H1N1 swine flu arrived in the spring, well before traditional flu season.

And like the 1918 flu, the H1N1 flu currently seems most likely to infect older children and young adults, notes Lone Simonsen, PhD, adjunct professor of global health at George Washington University, Washington, D.C.

"What we see is the new H1N1 flu is not dissimilar to that first wave of 1918 -- which had so few deaths it was a mild pandemic wave," Simonsen tells WebMD. "That is the worst-case scenario, that we might be looking at something similar to that. Or it could be this new flu is something we have never seen before and nothing bad will follow. We cannot learn from the past exactly."

4 confirmed cases of swine flu at Ark. army base
www.philly.com...

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Arkansas' first confirmed swine flu cases came from out-of-state airmen training at a military base in central Arkansas, officials said Friday. A school child in northeast Arkansas has also tested positive for the disease.

Officials said 11 airmen training at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock suffered flu-like symptoms. Four tested positive for the virus, four tested negative and three test results are pending.

The four confirmed cases involve two airmen from New Jersey and two from Nevada. Officials described their symptoms as mild, and said all 11 sick airmen have been isolated.

Friday's announcement was the first confirmation in Arkansas of the disease.
