I know this is mentioned elsewhere, however shouldn't the article after mentioning a couple times to "recognize the symptoms" offer up the symptoms?
If I were a hypochondriac I'd want to be able to go like....check each one off as I feel I have it. Then yell score when I get them all checked off! ;-)

My husband and I both have H1N1. He caught it within three days of starting his teaching job, and I had it three days after that. The scary thing about this virus is the speed of the infection. Which is why this whole H1N1 vaccination is a joke. Most people will have already had the virus by the time the vaccine becomes available, in late October (now they're saying "early November."). I think somebody has really dropped the ball on this one, and now they're trying to cover themselves by "warning" everyone to "take precautions." We knew that already, and you're too late, CDC, Sebelius, et. al.

Everything I've read, and my own experience, have indicated that the symptoms of H1N1 are pretty much the same as "regular" flu. I will say, though, that my husband and I both got a sudden cough on the second day. I've had coughs before, but never so quickly. Also, the fatigue is very pronounced. We both slept A LOT. Other than that, it's just been like a bad case of the flu.
