Whooping cough, a cough that turns your face blue from lack of oxygen. I had whooping cough over seven years ago which means my immunity to it has expired. And what do you know, as soon as I became susceptible again I caught the "Cough" again. This time, however, I caught it in time to avoid the "whooping" coughs. I would just like to warn everyone that Whooping Cough is no joke, it is a very scary and even deadly illness. Those usually killed are the elderly and the very young. Most doctors do not recognize the early signs because they are so similar to the common cold, such as in my past experience. No only did I suffer double the length it normally lasts (200 days instead of 100), but I sometimes blacked out from lack of oxygen while in a coughing fit. There is good news though, a prevention! Go today and get vaccinated and avoid the illness altogether! I figured I would never get it again and I did, now I know to get vaccinated every 10 years (which is about how long the vaccine lasts). Please, for the safety of the elderly and young, and even yourself, get vaccinated as soon as you can. I would not wish this illness on my worst enemies.
To learn more about this illness please talk to your doctor or even look it up online.
