Now we have confirmed cases in Canada, of the swine flu. Some have been found in Nova Scotia. My sister just flew in from Nova Scotia
My mom and brother both are whining about a sore throat and body aches. Even more superb.....
I highly doubt it's got anything to do with my sister though....or swine flu....
But with everything going on you're naturally going to want to keep an eye on it.
My sister has been sick almost constantly since she moved out there, cold, flu, cold, flu, like every 2 weeks or so, something new....it would only
seem right that if anyone catches the nastier strains eventually, it would be HER of all people lol. That said, maybe it's a GOOD thing she is here,
and not there right now.
I haven't heard any reports of anything in Ontario yet, but I haven't checked it out or tried to hard to read what's going on. Too tired, saving
that for tomorrow.....but I hope it's all so far so good, here.
There was a whole family on TV today interviewed, and a family member called me down to tell me about it/watch..... One person brought it home, sick
with it from who knows where and then the entire family caught it. It was confirmed as swine flu. They all got better and their descriptions of it
sounded like ANY damned flu. I dunno....I mean, I hope that for the majority of cases, it's pretty much like just getting that years most popular bug
from hell, and then moving on with life as normal.....like I would after exam week every December and April
But otherwise, it's being made to seem like something horrendous and scary and I dunno what to think.
I am going to pop in at work and get my messages from the organizations' intranet (can't access any documents or info I'm sent, here at my home
internet, have to go to the office....) and see if they have anything new and exciting to tell us.
Last time we had a meeting about the whole flu issue and protocol for dealing with the community, our site, and related issues..... they were saying
how we're probably going to have blackouts and no place to buy food hardly because of all the employees being sick, that I might get locked in my
workplace and be 'required' (i say forced/manipulated into) taking whatever medications they decide we employees have to take, in front of nurses
and sh*t like this....
We won't be allowed to let anyone out and all this crap.
I hope that's all overkill, worst case scenario, unlikely to ever occur sort of stuff, because they'll have to whip out guns or cuff me to a
doorknob before I'm letting anyone lock me inside and feed me pills...gaawd....that's completely wrong on so many levels.
The other thing is, is that they are very soon to make flu shots mandatory, and with this occurring, it's bound to happen even sooner. Ughh.....
I already let them convince me I needed to have all these vaccines and stuff updated that I don't really agree with, and let them do it anyway,
because I needed the damn job. It doesn't sit right with me, and I didn't want to have to do any more....
