Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Who knows - but I do have some variant of the swine flu. I came home at noon Wednesday feeling a little queasy. By night I was sicker than a dog. Yesterday I went to the Doctor and he told me yup you have some variant of the swine flu so here are your meds - take them along with the other meds you are on and take those as directed too - and you have to have a chest x-ray to make sure you don't have pheumonia - because you sound really bad in there.

He called about the chest x-ray about three hours later than he said he would but there is no pneumonia but lots of inflamation and trapped air and other stuff.

I came home and took the meds as instructed - seems like an awfully lot of meds to me: one inhaler twice a day; one inhaler four times a day; tama flu one pill twice a day; and some other pill for asthma one pill three times a day. (help I can't keep track of all this stuff)

Just for the record I am into this medication cycle only sixteen hours but I feel a whole lot better - probably just the drugs - I have a guy that works for me that always says it is "BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY." YUP he is correct....

Yikes! I hope this runs it's course quickly, and I hope Inklings doesn't get it!

goodness! You must've been pretty bad to get all those meds! I hope you're all better soon and I'm glad you don't have pneumonia, but keep an eye on yourself because it could still turn into that! Feel better!!

It is the placebo effect that causes drugs to make us feel better.
