Swine Flu coverage and my rant!

Reading Time: 1 minutes (ish)

Dear World

First off, please ignore this as I am just having a rant! I wish I had more followers so that this would be noticed by a few people!!

At this moment in time, my daughter is lying in bed with a temperature of 39.5 C. This is pretty high and a bit worrying!

What is a bit more worrying is that my daughters nursery has had a confirmed case of swine flu.

Now as a sensible person I do not tend to worry about things that are sensationalised by the papers and the news. Bird flu etc. I could just let pass by as I knew the news was blowing it out of proportion.

But this is different, this is my little girl and all I can see in any paper or on any channel is people saying we are all going to die from swine flu. This is very scary to me right at this moment. Not so much because of the press coverage, although I do believe that it is irrisponsible and just plain wrong the way the press is handling it, but because I can not get through to talk to anyone who may know some answers!

NHS direct has melted down entirely, and are not taking calls. The GP will call me back some time today and I have no information about the swine flu hotline that is of any use.

All I want is the truth and some advice that will put my mind at ease.

As for the way the press cover things like this, you should be ashamed of scaremongering. I really hope none of you have to deal with something like this and then have to read the arse gravy you are spreading about it.

And relax.

Spread the love!
