  • I did not, but my mother did. She had them once as a child and again when we had them because her first case was so minor it didn't allow her system to build immunity. She only had like one "pock" and no fever as a child. As an adult it almost killed her.

  • Had chicken pox as a child once then I got the shingles as an adult and have nerve damage because of that. Sucks!
