Has anyone here had Swine flu?

or know anyone with it? How bad is it, really? Is it just like any other flu strand (assuming your healthy)?

The media seems to be blowing this out of the water, so looking for some more practical input.

  • They are even saying it shouldn't be called the Swine flu because the sales of pork has decreased drastically, and they should call it the Mexican flu. But the president in Mexico said hell no I the hell they don't know it didn't come from the US and was brought over into Mexico

  • the toddler that died was had underlying medical conditions. A healthy toddler will be miserable, but should be fine.
