What a week, wouldn't ya say. Makes you wonder who above Obama pissed off. He got a war, a wacked econonmy and now a pandemic. Really, you could not make this stuff up if you tried. I know this because I have been sitting around thinking of something to write and nothing is nearly as intriguing as this pile of crap we are sitting in right now!
I had the pleasure of working today in a large medical faciltity. Swabbing noses, passing out masks, wondering why in the heck you would come to the doctors office for a wart to be frozen off when the World Health Organization keeps saying "pandemic". I personally might wake up, listen to the radio and say...maybe next week I'll get this looked out. I think it does not take a degree in Rocket Science to think that all the sick people are going where? yup, that is right--the doctors office ya doorknob!
I am just a little nurse but really have a gripe with the news media. You would think AIDS suddenly was transmitted via casual contact and came with an automatic 7 day death sentence. People are freaking out!
Calm down, wash your hands, avoid sick people if possible. Drink your fluids, get rest. Take care of yourself. We will get thru this. It will suck if you catch it. But rest assured most people will survive. Already in the US this year we have lost about 13,000 people to the plain old regular flu...13,000 people! Influenza A/H1N1 has claimed nothing even remotely close worldwide.
Oh and I have one more request...
Leave them out of it!
It is tough to be a pig 2009!
Don't even get me started on Egypts' solution to the problem.
