Swine flu

What is the difference between a flu and the swine flu? The symptoms are basically the same, right? How can someone tell if they have the swine flu rather than just a normal flu?

Haha... I'm not sure if you're a fantasy baseball-er, which is kind of funny if you aren't, but I'll try and answer it for you...

The flu is very similar to the swine flu, and the symptoms are almost identical. When swine flu was first realized, there was no vaccination so everyone was terrified of it. However, it is just as deadly (or undeadly) as any other flu. The people at risk from the swine flu are babies and elderly people. These are also the people at risk from the normal flu. Babies can die from the flu, but because of the vaccinations we have, it is unlikely. If you're teen to middle aged, I wouldn't be worried too much. But, I would go get it tested out and if you do test positive, I'd take the appropriate action to not affect others. You may find this website helpful...

I think Brad Lidge has swine flu. Maybe that's why every save he gets costs him 2 earned runs.
