Does this flu trace back to about February-March? Sometime between those two months I caught a flu that kept me in bed for 8 days! I get a cold about every winter, but that is about it. I can't remember the last time I have been in bed with a fever for so long. I know the swine flu is getting a bit to my head, but I am still curious. Also, has there been any CONFIRMED cases in Illinois thus far?

As an individual with 24 years of intimate experience within the Healthcare field, and speaking yesterday to a family member of mine who graduated Pre-Med at Dartmouth College, I can offer a sound piece of advice for all in regards to the Mainstream Media's contradictory Physician advice: ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS heed the advice and suggestions of the more cautious Medical Doctors.
Those Physicians whom you hear completely dismissing H1N1 (AKA "Swine Flu), are not to be taken seriously, as they are acting with the upmost amount of Politically minded ignorance.
Those Physicians cautioning individuals on their need to take certain measures against spreading and inheriting this Viral Infection however, are acting as concerned Physicians who do in fact take their Patients well being into deep consideration, and they are doing so without regard for the ensuing bureaucratic nonsense.
The Bottom Line is DO NOT Panic, DO NOT Freak out, but DO take the proper precautions against contracting and/or spreading the Influenza. You need to be especially cautious if you, or someone you have daily contact with, suffers from a pre-existing Pulmonary condition.

i also found that smoking marihuana was about the only thing that made me feel halfway better - it restored my appetite, eased my nausea and full body aches/shakes and made it possible for me to sleep - none of the other medications combined did that, they just turned me into a zombie.

Does anyone find it odd, that all the deaths from this virus are spanish/mexican nationality? Have there been any confirmed cases of caucasion, black, or any other nationality. Makes a fella wonder if it had a specific agenda, i.e. the crisis on our borders... Just wondering if I'm the only one that is thinking like that.
