Claim: Swine flu has freaked out far more people than any so called terror attack. Case in point: me.
Since yesterday, I've been trying hard to convince myself that I am not yet infected by it. Put it another way, the hypochondriac and the paranoid in me are both working overtime. My ears have become extra sensitive; every time anyone coughs, my mind registers it. At one point, I concluded that almost everyone is coughing. That is both a relief and a disaster. It relieves me to know that there are other people who cough say once every hour. It also scares me that they have all been sent into this world to give me swine flu; it is a game of odds and numbers.
According to the internet, it actually is not a scary thing for most people and they can recover with little or no medication.
