    It's very nasty beebs, would not wish that on anyone. I've had it so bad, i could only imagine how horrific it would be for a small baby. My littlest has been coughing till he vomits a fair bit, the middle one coughs till he's absolutely red in the face exhausted from coughing. It really is not something anyone would want to get. This idiot woman saying it's a 'breeze' should experience it so it might change her mind!

And in the case of WC I think the current vax is about 85% from memory- but 85% effective is much better than the zero protection of not vaccinating.
    I'm sorry you have had to go through this, and your family too. I hope that it helps change your stance on vaccination and that your family recover their health.
    You absolutely nailed it and summed up exactly why my thoughts completely did a 180! And i've even very much surprised myself trust me, being a non vaxxer my whole parenting life i've had many judgements from doctors and been berated for my choices many many many times. But with the support and trust I have in my new GP and after our recent experience of WC it really has changed my mindset. I'd much rather have at least some protection then none. And i know i'm not guaranteed they won't have a reaction, but as you said i'd have to say the chances would be much less then contracting the disease. Plus i read a heartbreaking story recently too of an 8 year old boy who died from chicken pox, and he only had 5 spots on him, that scared the crap out of me too!

    Totally agree with you, so sorry your family caught it.

    I had whopping couch 3 years ago and ended up with pneumonia in both lungs. I was so ill, I had that cough for 9 months, nothing would get rid of it. It was so exhausting and so awful gasping for breath between coughing I just can't imagine how hard it would be for a little baby.

    Anyone who takes it so lightly is just a complete idiot, it would be so heartbreaking to watch your child have it. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    I'm so sorry to hear how unwell you've been :hug:
    We're very pro vax here and even I had a few doubts when our Bub got her vaccinations (she handled them very well and was absolutely fine). I can only imagine how hard it was for you. I've heard Sydney is on the verge of a measles outbreak (there were signs up when we went to Westmead children's hospital a few months ago), so it really is better to be as protected as possible

    CG - Wow 9 months!! Noooooo i'm so super over it, it's wretched, haven't been able to drive, i ended up having the principal of the school drive me and the kids home last week as i was so ill with pnumonia and fractured ribs (that i didn't know about) and was all dizzy and lightheaded, it was so frightening and embarrassing, so now the school have arranged people to take my kids to school for me for the next 2 weeks, it's utterly miserable not being able to take them to school and do my normal things, plus we're going overseas in less then 3 weeks, i'm devo at the timing of it, but just have to suck it up i guess.

    Amiedoll yeah that is a concern too, there were several cases going around school many kids have got it, most were vaccinated but still by the time it's detected it's already spread and most doctors just sent us away saying it's just a viral cough it'll go away in a few weeks!

    Yeah, before I became staunchly pro vaccination, I had a few shockers, rubella when pregnant, whooping cough whilst travelling overseas, the next year chickenpox while travelling overseas again. It absolutely changed my mind completely about vaccinations.

    With the WC - I was misdiagnosed and told it was a chesty cough, so I was I was on planes, on tubes, on buses, travelling to different countries and spreading it around. vomitting after every bout in public, turning purple, blood vessels in my eyes bursting. I had it for 3 months and felt like I was going to die.

    Gosh you poor thing it really makes you so weak doesn't it. I had the barky seal cough for about 5 months, and then still had a cough for another 4 months. It totally wrecked my lungs, I'd cough every morning and all night. Rest is really all you can do, hope you get some relief soon

    I think I read the same, if not similar, story. It made me go and get my 4 year old the vaccine that we had accidentally missed at 18 months and not yet got around to catching up on!
