OK, I went to get my H1N1 vaccination. Mind you this is the first batch of the live virus that is inhaled through the nose. It states right on the information paperwork not intended for anyone with respiratory problems including but not limited to asthma, copd, pulmonary embolisms, High blood pressure, etc I can't remember the other ailments it listed, so ultimately I don't qualify to get the inhaled vaccine. I also don't qualify for the inhaled vaccine because I am over 49 years of age. They recommend we do get the vaccination but wait for the killed injectable vaccine. With this said my own personal doctor told me that as long as I get the regular flu shot even if I do get the swine flu I wont get it as severe as I would not having a flu shot at all. I still intend on getting my H1N1 vaccine to protect myself and my family. Remember even if you don't get the flu you could be a carrier. Practice good hand washing, and cover you cough and sneezes with the arm and not the hand. Carry hand sanitizer with you so you can wash your hands frequently and by all means if you feel sick stay home! It is recommended that if you do get the flu not to return to work until you can go at least 24 hours without a fever and not be taking anything to reduce the temperature.

I had to fight to stay concious and to get to the phone. I didn't know what was going on at the time. I keep getting told how lucky I am but I don't feel that way. I'm always scared about dying now. Any time I feel...
