Whoa, you sound like me! I think that my husband has it too. How couldn't he, if I have it?!! My husband and kids have all the initial signs: tracheal irritation, coughs that last for 6mos, stomach issues. My husband is in such denial. He refuses to treat himself or get our children treated. I don't want him nor my kids to die from this. I think it is harder on the kids because their immune systems aren't developed vs my husband. I feel bad, like a murderer :( for infecting my dear family. It's really scary and breaks my heart.
