  • Yes. But that doesn't mean you will get sick. Swine flu, regular flu to me not much of a difference

  • above- The difference between the 2 is reg flu is mostly severe cold like symptoms and swine flu is more vomiting. You are probably at risk and should be checked if you start feeling funny.

  • yes hon you can get it as it is airborne, but soes mean you will or that it will be really bad. Have hubby drink lots of fluids and all of you take vitamins and stuff. remember its just a flu, nothig too serious, the media scared us all-I just got over swine flu and I didnt feel half as bad as I did with strept throat.
