I know I haven't written in a while but I share a common fear of the Swine flu, If I really think about it I will panic and never leave my house. I try to talk myself down so that I can function on a normal level as I go to work, go to the bank, to the store and to the gym all places that are completely infected I'm sure!I just have to remind myself that 1. everyone has a time in this life to die and I can't live in fear and 2. Tons of people die every year from the common flu, we just don't hear about them. I actually stopped watching the news about a year ago because of my anxiety and it has done wonders in my everyday life. I also have to remember that there are so many good things that happen every day and instead of being scared I want to try and help other people that not only could get the swine flue but they are homeless or lost o job. I have it very good in this life and if the worst thing that happens to me is the flu I just hope to live through it I guess, along with my family.
