I should not have to be dealing with this crap! My son & husband have whooping cough! We got our immunizations, but due to idiots that refuse to get their children immunized we get it. It is scary and there isn't anything you can due for it but suffer for six weeks, praying you can catch your breath. I too have been touched by autism, I understandstand, but I believe the key is spreading them out, this can be deadly! Doctors were hesitant to tell us exactly what it was, afraid to scare us, but for being idiots, all this time, my son should not have been going to school! We could have spread it more. I know several other students have it in the middle school, but why did they not send us a letter home, informing us of signs to watch for.
I think people are stupid that don't get their kids shots! putting not only their children at risk but others as well
Now my son is at the end of it, my DH has only had it for 2 weeks and this lasts 6! There also is no treatment that really helps, catching it early sometimes an antibiotic can shorten it, but I am not sure if his was caught early enough
