Anyone else flu-paranoid?

We are starting to stay home more because of the flu. I am considering pulling ds from preschool this week--just for the week--because flu is sweeping through (one dad is on a ventilator from complications).

Full disclosure, we have pretty severe asthma, so flu really could be deadly for me and one son. We already have bad colds, but not the flu.

Dh says I am a little paranoid.

No.  None of them are asthmatic or anything else like that though.

No. But we really don't have any health problems. I don't blame you though. You should be careful.

My household has already been hit this year. I think we're safe.

No.

I'm 48 and have never had it and I think I only know of one person who claims they did.

No. My boys do have mild asthma, but we have our own breathing treatments and equipment if needed.

If they were severe asthmatics, I would probably be more paranoid too. Make sure they are getting lots of vitamin D and C and washing their hands often.

No. People get sick life goes on. Every year its the same freak out and rush for flu shots. I'm more uneasy about what's in the flu shots than getting sick.

Yeah I get paranoid, bit not so much that it stops NY everyday routine with the exception of just more cleaning and washing hands. Doesn't matter though, I came down with that flu anyways lol.

Not really anymore. DS was in the ER before Christmas and tested positive for RSV and swine flu. He has health issues, so it can easily land him in the hospital.

Took the words right out of my mouth. Each year they say the flu is so bad blah blah blah. Seems the same to me year after year
