It’s scary, it’s coming. Anybody else freaked out about the swine flu? A child at our school got it. A boy in our neighborhood had it too. My niece’s school in Pennsylvania was shut down for 3 days because too many children were absent with the flu.
Am I panicking because I’m paranoid or because I’m prescient. I’m even waffling on the swine flu vaccine. Should I get it? Should my son get it? What if he doesn’t get it and he gets sick?
Since it seems there is a rush on vaccines, it seems likely we will not be getting it.
My DH raised in Europe in the land of homeopathic medicine is against it. I’m OK with that, but have all my flu coping strategies in place. We are all taking echinacea and Vitamin C supplements. I’ve signed up again with my neighbor for Juice Plus supplements and I’ve located my son’s inhaler for when it inevitably goes to his lungs.
And I’ve started to stock up on all sorts of remedies. I received some free samples of Boiron cough syrup, and cold relief tablets to try. Since I’m already a big fan of homeopathic remedies, I’m anxious to give them a shot. You can try them too- get a coupon code here: http://children.boironusa.com/ )
Wait, hmmm…well, actually I hope I never have to try them, but it sure seems likely. I’ll keep you posted.
