Before now, I have never been afraid of catching the flu or a cold. I'm not going to tell you that I'm afraid of H1N1. People die every year from flu and flu complications...
I am concerned with the ease of transmission of this virus - because I don't want to get sick. I don't need anything else taking away my energy. My energy is precious. When I'm dragging, I feel useless.
Sure, we all feel that way. But I feel drained of energy everyday. I don't need the flu, or a bad cold making it worse.
