  • dont be worried, there isnt much you can do you know? just live your life normal, and dont focus on this, whether it can really affect you or not, thinking about it, isnt the best thing to do you know? :) smiles!

  • It's not a fake flu, it is real and deadly. Also, this wasn't the flu that was vaccinated against. I really am not worried though, what can I do anyway? Have you been to Mexico recently or around someone who has? If not, I really wouldn't freak out. If you knew everything that was going around you would never leave your house.

  • A) I'm pretty sure my question was first :P
    B) Apparently this strain of flu can only be made in a lab?
    C) The virus is not limited to Mexico. It is spreading! I live in Texas (psst, that's not far from Mexico) and it's already here...you can see why I am worried.

    Now, I've been thinking, and I wonder if maybe there are so many deaths in Mexico because of the quality of health care? I don't know anything about the health care in Mexico...I'm just trying to think of things to make me feel better...
