1. This is good to know. 18 months ago, I had whooping cough. It may not kill adults but it is absolutely horrible to have.

    At my worst, I could only walk five steps before stopping to recover and get my breath back.

    The cough itself persisted for 10 weeks and was very uncomfortable. Sleeping through the night was pretty much impossible, as it woke me multiple times.

    I was around a friend’s newly born baby at one stage before I was diagnosed and was horrified that I could give that to a child. Luckily I had the cough and was passed the contagious stage.
