  • I am not worried about the flu, but for others who may get it and be too weak to fight it.

  • Not worried. AT ALL! Meh. It's curable with some antibiotics. The regular flu kills people, and tons of people get it every year, but no one freaks out about it!

  • The only reason I am is because my husbands immune system and lungs are weak, any cold can be very serious for him.

  • You can thank the media for you being so freaked out. Personally I am sick to death about hearing about swine flu this and swine flu that.

  • No its not crazy... better to be checked and feel reassured. I tired of hearing about the Swine Flu, but I cant help but feel a bit worried for my family cause we get sick often.
