Girls Write Out
Sunday, November 22, 2009

Everyone's talking about H1N1. It's making the rounds, and last week it stopped by our house for a visit. Since I got a personal visit, I put together an informal list.

You Might have H1N1 if:

Your diet consists of waters, crackers, ibuprofen, a stiff cough syrup, vitamin D and Airborne.
You've succeeded in hacking up half a lung.
You're entire middle is sore the day after hacking up aforementioned lung.
You have 50 bottles of antibacterial lotion spread throughout your house.
Despite the aforementioned bottles of antibacterial lotion, the virus tears through your house like a Kansas tornado.
Your hacking has produced a throat so sore, it hurts to drink water. Push fluids? Yeah, right.
You haven't been out of your pajamas in days and forget what you used to look like.
You're very hot. No, you're cold. No, you're hot. Cold. Hot. Cold.
You wear a mask at the doctor's office and experience feeling like a leper in a crowded lobby.
You realize just how pathetic daytime TV really is.

If you haven't had the flu and are feeling left out, fear not. Flu season still has months to go, and there are new strains forming even as we speak.

That sounds terrible. Sorry to hear you got the dreaded bug.

So, do you have any thoughts on taking the shot? Just wondering if you would have avoided it if you could have, given some concerns about the shots.

Oh gosh! I am so sorry. We had one visit from the H1N1 flu a couple of weeks ago, my husband had it. Then the regular flu came in a couple of weeks ago and hit my youngest son, and just now my oldest son has it.

Thank goodness for prayers and OTC's. Tamiflu was denied us. We were told it is only for children under two and those who are chronically ill. We are on our own.

So very sorry you had this H1N1 as a houseguest last week. It sounds like you tried to discourage it. Please take care of yourself and kick it out of your home. (But not to anyone else's.

Sounds familiar! Had it in October! It was horrble and the cough last for ever! I had to sleep in a different room from my husband for a whole week until I stopped.

I am so sorry to hear how sick you and your family have been. I am praying for God to heal you as quickly as possible. My family has been so fortunate to not have had anyone get this flu. From your description, it is one flu I hope skips my house!!
