 if a horrible virus was sweeping through the country, laying waste to entire cities. there is no anticdote, there is no vaccine.  it begins with flu like symptoms, and progresses until you die a terrible death - think black plague. you are so far unaffected, despite repeated exposure, it appears you somehow have natural immunities.  everyone in your family also appears immune except your dh, or one of your children. what do you do?

if your city was dying around you, wwyd?

how would  you survive?

 really? no ideas at all of how you would react or handle the situation to ensure the survival of yourself and your family?

We would be in the forest. Living off the land and staying away from the infected.

I also would assume I have some antibodies to this thing. My DH and child would drink breastmilk from me and I would hope it keeps the virus at bay.

This is like a show I saw called survivors and another one called Jeremiah. I love this kind of shows for some reason. I would try and find a doctor or research facility so that they could use our blood to try and create a vaccine. As far as Surviving to get there you would probably have to stay on the move to protect yourself.
