So I have h1n1. And I am SO SCARED of dying. The doctor at the clinic seemed so nonchalant about it. I guess I'll be fine? I'm afraid though. I know people have died from it. But I caught it pretty early, I think, so maybe that will help. I'm actually feeling OK right now, all of my medicine has kicked in, but I'm afraid of what I'll feel like later. I'm otherwise healthy, so I'm guessing maybe it won't be too bad. I don't want to jinx it. I'm just so afraid. I knew this was different right away. I came home from Indy early because I had a cough and was dizzy. Today my chest hurt so much.

And this Tamiflu I have to take? Can cause vomiting. I HATE HATE HATE throwing up. So much. I'm so scared of it. I know, my priorities are screwy.

Scared.

Relax *hugs* don't freak yourself out. Worrying over things can stress out your body even more. Sorry to hear that you have H1N1. You will be fine. :) The people who need to worry about it are children and the elderly. We are young and can just get through this. I have faith, you'll be fine. The only thing that will suck is you'll have to be a social leper for awhile.

oh no! get better soon!! if it helps at all, several of my friends had H1N1 and made it through -- it was definitely scary because it's so unknown but all three of them got through it same as a regular flu. NO FUN. I hope you feel better in a jiffy! (I'd be freaking out if I had it too...)

Hope you're doing OK with the H1N1 and with the Tamiflu...
