I am a very stressed out person and I know stress leads to severity of viruses and even increases the chance of getting a virus. Would swine flu be able to kill me or something like that?

Hun, all you gotta do is just keep clean. If you would have contracted something from stress, you would have already had it by now. The regular flu can kill people, but seriously, the swine flu is just another version of MRSA, SARS, bird flu, mad cow disease, etc. It's all an outbreak that come from people not having well kept hygiene.

The question of CAN swine flu kill you is yes whether your stressed or not, that's the same with most illnesses, that is why they are called illnesses. But WILL swine flu kill you is highly unlikely. Just remember to practice good hand Hygiene as well as not going to school/work if you are sick. Every one is going nuts about swine flu when they don't really need to. Just remember that while yes swine flu can kill you so can the regular flu and you're not all freaked out about that are you? So just try to calm down and if you feel like you are having some flu like symptoms go see your doctor you may just have run of the mill flu.

Only if you stress about it.
But in reality, just relax. Only one person outside of Mexico has died from it, a 24 month old toddler FROM Mexico. The strain that has infected the rest of North America is considerably weaker, and generally healthy people who have become infected have not required hospitalization. Worrying about it won't get you anywhere right? So just wash your hands, wear a surgical mask if you really feel uneasy, avoid public transportation, and just try to live normally. They aren't even sure if the virus will survive the summer weather.

heres the latest update on swine flu READ IT AND WEEP!!
lol j/k
this will make you feel alittle better! :)
they're now saying Swine flu may be less potent than they first feared.
The swine flu outbreak that has alarmed the world for a week now appears less ominous, with the virus showing little staying power in the hardest-hit cities and scientists suggesting it lacks the genetic fortitude of past killer bugs.
President Barack Obama even voiced hope Friday that it may turn out to be no more harmful than the average seasonal flu.
In New York City, which has the most confirmed swine flu cases in the U.S. with 49, swine flu has not spread far beyond cases linked to one Catholic school. In Mexico, the epicenter of the outbreak, very few relatives of flu victims seem to have caught it.
A flu expert said he sees no reason to believe the virus is particularly lethal. And a federal scientist said the germ's genetic makeup lacks some traits seen in the deadly 1918 flu pandemic strain and the more recent killer bird flu.
Still, it was too soon to be certain what the swine flu virus will do. Experts say the only wise course is to prepare for the worst. But in a world that's been rattled by the specter of a global pandemic, glimmers of hope were more than welcome Friday.
"It may turn out that H1N1 runs its course like ordinary flus, in which case we will have prepared and we won't need all these preparations," Obama said, using the flu's scientific name.
The president stressed the government was still taking the virus very seriously, adding that even if this round turns out to be mild, the bug could return in a deadlier form during the next flu season.
New York officials said after a week of monitoring the disease that the city's outbreak gives little sign of spreading beyond a few pockets or getting more dangerous.................................. MORE INFO GO TO THAT LINK THERE :)

I'd doubt it, the flu mostly has mild symptoms and pretty much only kills really old and young people. And if you get it relaxing at home would help relieve the stress anyway.

Stress doesn't cause disease. Stress suppresses your immune system making it easier to contract a disease.

no more than any other flu but if you take good care of your self and keep to a healthy life you more than likely will be just fine
