No, dammit, you DO NOT have swine flu!
Or, no tienes gripe porcina, as they say in Spanish. I am getting really good at this. Even if you did, I probably would send you home with instructions to rest, wash your hands like a butcher coming home from a slaughterhouse and take two Tylenols and call me in the morning. Most of the time, there is absolutely nothing that needs to be done for this, just like with the regular flu. If you start having respiratory issues, get thee to an ER, stat. Otherwise, save the doctor's visit for a real emergency... like head lice.
