Windingroad- Too funny!!!

BusyMom- They are not doing specific testing up her unless hospitalized for 2 reasons, the cost of the test and by the time the results from the blood test come back, people are well on the road to recovery. They are diagnosing at the dr office by symptoms. I asked if the dr was sure, he said yes, as I had all of the symptoms. They wanted to give us the injection for work (juvenile corrections) 3 days prior to me getting sick, I said no, due to the mercury in the injection. The biggest reason was when my son was born, 2001, they pulled all vaccinations with mercury in them due to a possible link with autism. I also really believe that it's good to fight things on our own and build up an immunity. Plus they created this scare with SARS, bird flu and now swine flu.

All right I cannot resist. What's the difference between the bird flu and swine flu? Bird flu you need tweetment, swine flu, you need oinkment. LOL.

Have a great day, gotta finish spaghetti for supper.

Heard story this week from a mom whose daughter came home from school saying, "Mom, I don't want to get that 'butt sickness' or 'butt flu' that's going around." It took mom awhile to figure out that the daughter had read H1N1 as "heiny" and translated that to "butt". (I'm not actually sure on the spelling of heiny--hmmm).

I am not getting the H1N1 shot. The nasal spray is a live virus and the shot has mercury in it, so its kind of pick your poison. I am under the understanding that a medicine needs to be watched for years before it can be determined if it is truly beneficial or not. I could be wrong, but if I am going to get a live virus at the drs, (cuz I SURE ain't getting mercury injected into me!)I can go to any hospital emergency and be exposed to it at a much cheaper cost!

Lisa sorry & your family have been sick but glad you are better. H1N1 has been bad in this area. Several schools have been closed due to flu. I am hibernating till I can get the shot or it calms down around here. I have asthma & my right lung has collapsed twice. Had surgery to repair it second time so hope that is in the past! Anyway I am paranoid cause I go in to pneumonia easy.

Lisa, glad you are feeling better. Here where I live, they don't test specific for H1N1 or regular flu. They just assume that since people are getting flu earlier than usual, it must be H1N1 version. Do they test specific where you live? Kinda wish they did here, then we caregivers would know what we are exposing ourselves to!

As far as chat rooms go, I'm used to doing the month-2-month, but seasonal is fine too.

Windingroad, they say that unless this mutates, we'll won't get it again, nor need the vaccination, which I wasn't going to do anyway. Glad this is out of the way.... Hope your son is feeling better soon, and this doesn't hit him hard.

Lisa, that's too bad you and the kids were sick--does that prevent you from having to go through it again? So far, we been in the clear, but dear son was achy tonight. It snowed here today for the first time. It was pretty, but for the sake of the farm we could really use some drier weather. I am glad I got my leaves raked before they got all wet. Covered the strawberries and parsnips in leaves.

Lisa--glad you're over the flu. It can't be fun to have the flu and also have little ones with the flu. I hope your energy levels pick up quickly.

So sorry you all were sick! That has been going through the children in our neighborhood, but has stayed out of our house. I had Whooping cough in my 30's - I remember it took me months to feel OK even after all the symptoms were gone!

Hi all, I had started a fall chat, but forgot to put it as a sticky topic. Opps!! Would gals rather go monthly or buy the seasons? Let me know, I thought we could go by the seasons as we don't have a large chat group.

Things have been crazy here. 2 of my kids and I had the H1N1. We have recovered very well from it. The hardest part is that I still cannot get my energy level back to wear it was, tire very easily, still not back to exercise,as I cannot make it up the basement steps without huffing and puffing.

Well take care all.

Looking at old recipes and came across one that was passed down from my Grandmother from her Aunt. Typed it up into my PC and sent it on to my children, GC, and nieces and nephew.

I can't believe it's already November!

I am really going to make this month count. I bought one of the Sparkpeople goal-tracking calendars, and this is the first month I'm using it. Every day, I track 4 goals: water, exercise, eat 5 servings of f/v and spend 15 minutes decluttering my house. If I do all 4, I get to color in that day with a blue highlighter. If not, I get a big X. Here's to a solid blue calendar!

I also started a new challenge. It's called Following the Equator, and the team will track miles and minutes of exercises. I'll track our collective progress around the world. Here's a link if anyone would like to join us:

Hey everyone! We didn't have an October chat room, and her it is November already! Thought I'd take the liberty of starting one, although I can't make it a sticky so it'll stay on top!

So, how is everyone doing this month? What are your goals? How are we all going to get thru Thanksgiving and then on to Christmas and New Years?

Come on in and have a cuppa emoticon and some good talk with friends emoticon and we can all help each other with this trying time of year!
