So, I live in Michigan (don't think that matters, but it might) and my mom's a teacher. At her school, the whooping cough is going around (yay! sickness!) and they're thinking of shutting down her school for a week or so, so the kids can heal up and stop spreading the extremely contagious disease. The thing I'm actually scared about si that i got to school across the street from her, so I wonder how long it's gonna take to get to my school.

This concludes useless information time with Jules


UPDATE:
So m school district just had the first confirmation of whooping cough. They shut my moms school down and I think if this worsens this will end up like the swine flu (cue 2009 flash backs) so yeah. I dunno, this topic is interesting so I'll keep you updated.

If you were to catch it, it isnt loads to worry about. Whooping cough is uncomfortable to have, but all you need are some antibiotics, and just some recovery time. It isnt deadly though, just annoying.

Well, small children and infants can die od whooping cough. So what could happen is a kid bring it home from school, give it to his/her mom/dad and they will carry it on to the small child or infant and I'm worried the small child population is going to decrease.

Wait where da heck do you live cuz whooping cough is going around the schools where I live and I live in Michigan too omg this is freaky. There's like 12 something cases in the first school that had it and it has spread to the elementary schools and a few cases in the middle and high schools if this sounds familiar Jules you must contact me idk you but this might be a dream come true.

Honestly though, whopping cough isn't even too horribly fatal to young children. As an infant who had whopping cough and lives to tell the story she heard from her mother, yea, I had whopping cough when I was a baby and stuff.

I'd be more concerned about Ebola and the bubonic plague(aka black plague) although it's very unlikely ebola will get bad in north america since it isn't air born and we have the procedures and water to help with that. As for the bubonic stuff you just wanna hope that stays on Madagascar.

All in all, whopping cough isn't that frightening and it's not a pandemic or anything. Hope everyone gets over it though and nothing bad happens!

Is all honesty, I think the whole Ebola thing was an attention seeking scam for America and took all the media away from the ACTUAL problem is in Africa, so I'm not really that worried.

On the other hand, Whooping Cough is hell to go through (from what I hear) and I am personally (as a student, and the daughter of a teacher) worried about getting it, not only because of the extreme discomfort but the days taken away form school and the work I will miss and have to turn in on top of the work I have to do already.
