Well, apparently others aren't affected with the flu as bad as I've been in the past, and the few times I've had the flu....it was horrific.
So, I'm really dreading having ANY flu.....because the risks are just as high.
I think what this media exposure has done is have people look at their bad hygeine habits in general...and I think ultimately it will help more than just the flu.
Although, the overuse of antibacterial wipes, etc will produce another MRSA problem possibly.
We tend to go overboard, but cannot protect ourselves from everything unfortunately.
