H1N1 or the Common Cold?
Myself, I’ve never been terribly afraid of the flu. What I am more afraid of is trying to tough it out only to later realize that I’ve infected others along the way. So I have to say, I think all the attention around H1N1 is great education for me and people like me. I want to be more cautious now than ever before, especially with my daughter in a child care setting. That said, I also don’t want to keep her home for every little sniffle and cough. We’d be home until next spring if I did that. This CNN story was helpful to me in telling the difference between the common cold and the flu. It’s not rocket science, but it is helpful to hear in plain English.
