I have recovered from Whooping Cough. I had it in May 2010;) and it lasted for months. It started off as an annoying cough/cold and it seemed to get better than it came back along with the whooping spells where I couldn’t breath. My husband took me to the ER where they did the nasal swab which is really gross and I tested positive. It finally went away in September but for a while after I had a really hard time clearing my throat. It would hurt and I would cough a bit but no whooping. I did get a puffer but I’m not sure it helped me at all sometimes I would cough more with the puffer. I have not been sick at all since but I made sure when I was sick to eat very healthy. The only way to get better is by eating plant based foods with antioxidents. I also drank a lot of Monavie Mmun to help speed up the healing because it is a huge immune system builder. This is just what I did and it worked for me. The only affect I have is while singing. There are a few notes I struggle with now so I just do some adjusting. I am fully recovered though and very thankful. I wish everyone the best with this illness as it is very scary and a difficult illness to get over. It is scary to see so many people with lasting affects.
Speedy recovery everyone!
