Swine flu self-test

leave a comment »

I must admit: sometimes I can be a bit of a worrier, and this swine flu scare has turned me a hypochondriac.

Every time, I sneeze, cough or sniffle, my immediate thoughts turn to, “Oh no! I have H1N1!”

So I was happy to discover a H1n1 Flu Self-Evaluation feature on the federal government’s Web site dedicated to the flu.

The site warns that the test should not be used in lieu of seeking medical care, but I found that it could be helpful in a preliminary diagnosis of my symptoms. And to ease my hypochondria.
