Somehow, I suddenly feel that an era or an age I knew is slowly but surely passing away. Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett are gone and now, all the more, I feel old.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has already stated that Influenza A (H1N1) has already reached the pandemic level. In our household, the swine flu has already resulted in the postponement of the start of classes for both my children.

Disclaimer: I am not a medical doctor and if you or anyone in your family does not feel healthy, please consult your doctor. This blog post is meant to just share and record my personal experience so that I may remember what the doctors told me (in my particular case).
When people get sick, more often that not, it is caused by a virus. We usually recover from mild or regular viral illnesses by resting, taking lots of fluids, and managing our body temperature by taking something like paracetamol. From my family's personal experience and discussions with our doctors, there is really nothing else that one can take for a viral illness (nothing really cures it) and it may take anywhere from 3 to 7 (or even 10?) to run its course.
