Well, I can tell you this. My fiancee's parents went to Florida in Early April to visit relatives. They came home with the mother of all flus. It was
so bad that they instructed us not to come over. This was not your everyday flu. This was bad. Folks, this was in EARLY April..... They have known
about it for some time now.
See, this is interesting to me, because in early March of this year I caught some terrible flu, and not just me, several of my friends and relatives.
I have no idea what it was. I didn't go to the doctor, but here are the details if anyone cares.
A dear friend of mine had been sick, gotten better but gave it to his wife, and then she gave it back to him like a week later. I saw him the day
after he had "recovered" but he was still coughing. Me and another friend hugged him goodbye, and we both got sick at the same time, about two or
three days afterwards (I don't remember the exact day.)
The first day I was couching, but I didn't feel sick at all. I thought that they next day I would be totally recovered, but I wasn't. That's when
I started to get the fever. It was a low fever but it was extremely uncomfortable. I mean, every flu symptom I've ever had but extrememly intense.
I was miserable. I laid on the couch for days and days popping cough drops and swigging mineral water. The fever lasted two weeks. I mean, I hardly
ever catch anything at all, and if I do it usually goes away quickly. I don't want to elaborate on the symptoms too much because it's major TMI,
but let's just say it was a memorable experience. I finally became decongested after using some silver colloid nasal spray and fully recovered a few
A family member of mine who lives in the same city asked me about my symptoms because he had been sick around the same time. He said that almost
everyone he knows was either sick or knew someone who was at that time. No one we know died. His symptoms were a little bit different than mine, but
it seems that we all had a really wicked version of the flu. None of us went to a doctor and everyone recovered.
I'm not saying we had the swine flu, I just think it's interesting.
