    Why will winter be worse?

    I hope all the people that hav it get well soon.

    I try not to listen to anythig that is said about it as the media like to create alot of hype and worry about it. I know a few people have died from it, but alot of people die from normal flu too.

    My boyfriend had it last week, he's perfectly fine now though thank god!
    He wasn't given anything for it as he has no health problems and was over the worst of it anyway.
    Just like normal flu, I don't understand why the media are making such a massive fuss about it anyway - It is just causing a panic over something people generally get every year or 2 anyway!

    Hope you feel better soon, it's not nice being stuck in the house in the summer!
