It was exclusively reported by Usmagazine.com today that Melissa Rycroft has been infected with the swine flu. The reality TV star admitted that she had what she thought to be regular flu until her symptoms became more extreme. Luckily, her fiance’s mother is a nurse and instructed her to go directly to the doctor.
“I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus,” Melissa told Us. “Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection.”
Melissa offered some advice to the rest of us who might be concerned about contracting the virus. “IÂ want to stress to people how easy it is to battle this flu when you take the proper steps such as seeking the care of a doctor,” she continued. “I’m a clear case that by paying diligent attention to your health, it’s easy to overcome this illness and be healthy again.”
The new season of The Bachelor will premiere in early 2010 on ABC.
