    what are you going to get for your swine flu emergency kit?

    mine will be pretty simple...lots of puffs with lotion....nyquill....and lots of advil ...cough drops...or mints ... perhaps some gatorade...

    how sick do you have to get before you break down and go to the doctor?

    If I had small kids, might feel different. Not doing anything, other than if feel sick, going to doc right away, not waiting.

    Mask and gloves.

    JK.

    Wash my hands often. Pay attention to how I feel. First indication of feeling sick, off to the doctor.

    And I don't ever go to the doctor.

    A hell of a lot sicker than that.. I've often been referred to as nothing less than pig-headed and stupid when it comes to that. Tho, I'm not sure the one slinging such mud as much room to talk... :eusa_whistle:

    Are you Kidding me. When did we as the American people become so reliant on drugs and doctors for the simple flu? Ever hear of vitamins? Your body has an immune system, give it what it needs (Healthy Food, Vitamins and Rest) to do its job and it will. Are we now going to close everything down for every Flu that gets named?

    Lot's of 15 year old Scotch.
    They use alcohol to sterilize your skin before they poke you with a needle for a reason.

    Zinc, vitamin C, echinachia and ginger.

    Zinc as soon as you know you have come in contact with someone who has the flu. We were on a trip with mom and dad one year down in Texas. Dad had it bad, mom got it and I took zinc. I did get the flu but it was very mild. I took the zinc as I started feeling ucky. It was a bad puke, felt crappy for the day and that was it.

    Ginger helps open up the lungs when you start getting stuffy.
