I definitely don't want to catch it because we're taking care of a 3 week old baby over here and I don't think newborns handle sicknesses like that well, so we're taking all the precautions we can to keep him healthy from even the most common of colds! Jeff, I was told the only reason why swine flu is spreading so easily is because we've never been exposed to it before so we don't have any defenses to it, but now that you and your family have had it, I think your chances of catching it again are definitely lower than for someone who's never had it. And yea, everyone else is right, swine flu isn't worst than regular flu. Just like regular flu, it's dangerous for the elderly, newborns, pregnant women and those with pre existing health conditions.
