    she's being sick and has the squits, nhs confirmed it was swine flu today and only yesterday I was with her and kissed/held her for a few hours in my bedroom .... with limited airing, while she was moaning how she feels like death.

    So, what are the chances I have it? I've had diaohria (sp?), and my mum works at an elderly home so she's going skits she'll pass it on and kill off a few of them. :rolleyes:

    She was like "wash your hands after I leave"... I doubt that'll do much we've been kissing, cheers!

    Well you did kiss her when she told you she felt like death lol so there is a chance you'll get it. My mum's had it though and so has one of my mates and everyone's fine. If you get it don't worry you'll be right again after a week. If your mum gets it then obviously she should just take some time off and she won't spread it!

    You probably have it. Lots of people have had it/are having it/are going to have it. Don't worry if you do

    As I've always said - it's better to get it now than in the winter. And at least, even if you get it both, your body will half be ready to fight it from it's appearance the second time round. A lot of us will get it, and very very few will suffer majorly from it, so don't worry about it too much. Your gf is surviving, so would you

    Just think, you wont have to have a needle shoved in your arm if you get it now. I'm actively trying to catch it, but no luck so far even with two people in my house having had it

    Ah yeah, I'm not worried at all. But my girlfriend isn't the most informed about the news and stuff she'll read a front page and panic like ****. She thinks it's lethal and stuff, no matter what I say, it's kind of annoying tbh but I feel sorry for her.

    Is there anything I can say to make her realise it isn't bad at all??? she's all "I'm scared something bad will happen" saying dumb stuff like that. Or should I just comfort her (over the phone of course) and just go with the flow.

    I personally don't care if I get swine flu, I haven't got a job atm so I don't mind, I can take a little punishment.

    Elderly people are actually less likely to get it. There was an epidemic of flu (not swine flu but a very similar strain of it) in the 1950's, so many elderly people have a fair bit of immunity to it.

    That's why you'll find that swine flu is more present in younger people than in older people.


    Although having said that, if an elderly person does end up with swine flu, the effects will probably be worse. Elderly people seem to have a tougher time dealing wth flu once they've actually got it.

    Just tell her to stop reading the Sun and the Daily Mail. Also, 6000 people die every year from normal flu. So far, about 30 people have died from swine flu. Only one didn't have serious underlying health problems. Then, crack a joke and ask her if she'd like some 'oinkment'

    Seriously, the facts are about half the population will get it, it's just another form of flu which is mild in most people and if she was still snogging you then she can't be feeling too bad. Tamiflu has common side effects of diarrhoea and vomiting though so maybe she should avoid it and just take normal paracetamol? Although I'm not a doctor.

    What? They're not swabbing anymore. They're just telling everyone who has a temperature that they have swine flu. Has she actually been swabbed?
    Regardless, the chances of dying from flu are pretty much the same, and if she actually has flu what the hell were you doing snogging her?

    Just give her a BBC page.

    I have been quarantined for swine flu (without actually being tested) and I didn't pass it on my bf by kissing :no:

    yea nice nice I'll let her know stuff like that and leave it be after because she might just be looking for sympathy if she ignores those facts, hah. Good joke too.

    She just felt really iffy at first and she didn't get much sleep before, then towards the end of the day she was all panicky so it's not like she was kissing me while she thought she had it.

    What do the doctors hand out, anything fun? Benzo's, sleep aids/painkillers. I wouldn't mind some to pass by boring ill time. :laugh: :yes:
