It just dawned on me, somehow, almost 3 years later....

I am unvaxed. I vaxed my oldest dd with DTaP in October 2004. November 2004 I got "bronchitis" or what was really a 3 month long cough which often left me gasping for air and often vomiting. No one, not even my doc, thought to test for Pertussis. Now I'm wondering about this.

Well, it is a dead vax, so you didn't catch it from your kid. However, in spite of the vax, pertussis seems to be circulating all the time, so it could have been pertussis--it sounds like it. I actually, as far as I know, have never had pertussis, nor have I ever been vaxed for it. However, if it is circulating all the time I guess I must have had it and didn't know. Several times...

You know, I remembered that as soon as I finished up typing this post,but, I figured I'd leave it here in case someone read differently.

That said, I'm really convinced I did have P. I had NEVER ever been sicker than a typical cold or flu in my life before that 3 month long cough. It all kinda makes sense now.

Dunno. Haven't heard that one.

I do vaguely remember that some one did a study checking immune function in adults after they got the tetanus vax--and their immune function went waaaayyy down and stayed there for at least a couple of weeks. And I remember that some vaxes (meningitis) seem to increase the likelihood of getting the disease for a week or 10 days after vaxing, probably, again, a drop in immune function.

Anyone else remember this stuff?
