OK, then call me insane...
I would not mind getting this right now so I could develop some immunity. (I'm not speaking of purposely infecting children.)
Our nightmare scenario is if this swine flu follows the 1918 pattern and comes back deadly in the fall. Those who had a milder version are likely to have some
Now who wrote or told you some immunity is conferred with this H1N1 bug? No, it's not likely, in fact when it mutates, you're just as likely to be first on the list for the newer more lethal form, if you've had H1N1 (just guessing
, and it's not an educated or even lucid guess).
I have it right now, and believe me, you don't want it! The sore throat is severe and lasts longer than usual prodromal symptoms, the rhinitis is like a tap left open, when it isn't turgidly blocking my airway. HA, fever and sweats make you go through nightwear too quickly, because there's no energy to do a wash, and when I try to knit, I drop stitches all the time and lose my count. Reading is out, because I can't remember what I've read (not just due to my age), and I fall asleep, which is probably good. Another goody is that friends bring me soup - but I can't open the door wide enough to talk to them. I mutter, "Put it down and leave, quick!"
