Returning to work today at least one coworker was certain I had the flu >>the Swine Flu, no less<< and not a severe cold as I've been saying. So I Googled –symptoms cold vs. flu– and got very helpful results. I wanted to reinforce my knowledge, not refute the coworker who no doubt by now has burned the chair I was sitting on in her office. I'll list only two of those excellent, succinct sources:
- FluFacts.com — a simple table of symptoms. For me, I wound up picking one from column "A" and one from column "B" for a mixture of symptoms. The important pointers, in my opinion, aimed at "Cold."
- About.com — they offer an interactive quiz that will tally the likelihood of your having one or the other disease based upon your symptoms. Takes less than a minute to complete.
Work, itself? I've been chasing down weird computer issues all morning. Could they have the same thing I had? At least they all have been inoculated with a strong anti-virus!
