  • Yes, when I was 13. I caught them from the grimey kid that sat in front of me in History class. His Mom sent him to school with it. I had it Sooooo bad, I had them in my mouth, under my eyelids & on my private parts in addition to everywhere else. I missed a while from school. My sisters would not eat dinner at the same table with me. The Dr. said it was the worst case he'd seen. It was gross but I lived!

  • No. And when I was trying to pregnant back in 2000-2001, I wanted to know if I should get the varicella (chicken pox) vaccine prior to TTC, I had a complete assay profile completed. My blood work determined that I am, in fact, naturally immune to ALL of those common childhood illnesses--I'm 41, with two young school aged boys, and I never so much as get a head cold every couple of years or so!

  • Yes, I had them twice. First time was when my brother got them, I just got a few. I wasn't in school yet. Then I got them real good when they went around when I started school.

  • No, I have not. I have been wondering if I should get that shot or anything else. I'll be going gor my yearly check up soon so I will find out then if I need to.

  • Yes, once, and I have been exposed to them many more times over the years babysitting other kids who had them.

  • Yep. I had them when I was 1 1/2 years old so I don't remember them at all. All I know is I got them around Christmas and gave them to my mum.
