    H1N1 : Are you afraid?


    My family and I decided not to get vaccinated this flu season. Even though the news was plastered with the epidemic. I believe we cause our own mutated viruses when panic arises people jump on the "cure". I was horrified when I saw what the shot has done to people and did not want to take the chance. We never have gotten the flu shot and have been flu free. I have 4 small young children who do get sick but we provide chicken noodle soup and extra hugs for this season. Good practices of being aware that germs do lurk on every wall, door knob, and counter.  Washing hands, covering your mouth with your arm, and if you accidentally sneeze in your hand washing it right away. I have been aware . We see people sneeze and touch a pen. I simply decline that pen and use another to sign into a school. I have seen someone cough allover the place. Watch out I am leaving. We do not enjoy sickness and I know no one else does but we try to prevent with out vaccinations and so far we have done well.
