Skye Sweetnam checked in with fans to discuss the swine flu after she had to pick her brother up from school because he had a cough. The singer writes on her blog at MySpace (@skyesweetnam):
In the headlines 24/7 is this H1N1 epidemic. I had to pick up my bro from school because the teachers wouldn’t let him stay (even tho it’s only a cough) Everyone is freaking out! But I know a few people who have had H1N1 and gotten over it in a week. Still, I do not want to get sick! So wash your hands and take precautions! Maybe me and my brother went over board but I loved wearing a mask everywhere! Everyone get so scared and doesn’t come near you… (just the way I like it!) jk! haha
The other main precaution you can take is the vaccine obviously! But part of me is creeped out by this story Beautiful Cheerleader Develops Dystonia After Receiving Vaccine and HUNDREDs of more reports discouraging people from taking the shot. Do your own research and make your own decisions. I do have faith in my own immune system. It’s just seems like a sci fi move with long lines of people in line clamering for a vile of some serum to save them from an epidemic. Just freaks me out!
