  • All I can say is that I've been sick since July 4 weekend. I think mine is just a cold.

  • there are always active flu strains, so yes, with the whole swime flu it's best to be even more cautious. Here in Buffalo, two kids, a 9 year old and a 15 year old died of swine flu in the last month!

  • Yes, my son had swine flu last week. Check out the CDC site for more information on influenza. They have a colored coded map that shows what each state is like right now with the flu. Right now in California the Swine flu is widespread.

  • There is always a flu strain going around, there are just times of the year when it is worse. There is more than one strain of flu going around at anytime.
