It started as hot and cold flashes, then a constant fever, intense headaches and migraines, complete loss of appetite, full body weakness & aches. Then I started to get the definite signs of pneumonia. Rales, problems breathing, chest pain and an intense cough that would make me get light headed & vomit

The crazy thing was I was ONLY chest congested. Extremely chest congested.


So yeah, if that really was due to Swine flu, and my mom being an Rn, she'd know better than I, then I can TOTALLY understand how this would supercharge my immunity.

I LOL at the people saying its not a pandemic, they are oblivious to what the word pandemic means....
The World Health Organisation said it was NOT a pandemic, go read up....

I've had swine flu too... probably the worst week of my life illness-wise. However, it is true that I haven't been sick since then.

to the argument about not a pandemic, heres a literal definition: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pandemic
Quote:
pandemic (pænˈdɛmɪk)

— adj
1.(of a disease) affecting persons over a wide geographical area; extensively epidemic

— n
2.a pandemic disease
now stop bickering about that and focus on the article. Wait a minute, haven't people's immune system been actually creating antibodies for almost everything since the day man was born? I guess it is interesting how survivors can be super flu survivors now, making them not vulnerable anymore
