A(H1N1) Spreads ....

I'm getting paranoid over the sudden surges in H1N1 cases. Third school (Seri Cempaka) is now closed!

The count is 69! OMG!

Yes, I am worried! I wouldn't want to catch any bug, especially now that I am on road to remission (currently on preds 5mg!)

Last week Monday, we had an Australian visitor. Then Friday, I started feeling feverish, lethary and developed rashes. Saturday, Sunday felt a bit feverish, dry cough ... damn, am I imagining things?
I e-mailed him and he said he is okay, so, I guess I should be ok too...

Yesterday, I didn't go to work.

Today, I avoided work, as another Australian will be in our office...

Not taking any chances.

I don´t know if I can help any, but let me tell you I´ve reached this post while looking for alternatives and guidance for my wife, who has LES but no flares. She´s always shown low white blood cell count though. Now, SHE is a physician, a GP involved with the handicapped and I am one too, having to face sick people every day. The chances of infection are HIGH. And the virus is now rampant here in Honduras. My advice: keep calm, stay informed and in touch with your doctor. If possible, find out if and how you can be treated with antivirals as soon as you are diagnosed. I believe, though (and this is ME) that infection with this virus, now that it has not mutated to a more virulent strain, might be better than waiting and risking an infection later. But that´s my PERSONAL opinion. Good luck!

Thanks doclalima for the insight over the flu virus. It does get worrying when it mutates... plus, with having lupus, sometimes, I tend to just ignore the symptons thinking that it is one of "those days" ...

Cookie okay? She's a teacher

I am okay so far, I guess all is well!
