Did YOU get the chicken pox as a child?

Posted by   + Show Post

I did not.  Neither myself or my brothers ever caught the chicken pox, even when exposed around to others who had it.

Yes'm... I didn't realize my mother was trying to tell what heaven was like until I was 18 or 19. It was not scary until after the fact.  

Quoting PEEK05:

That's not good. :( Thankfully you survived!

Quoting dudestfd:

I had chicken pox, shingles, measles, and the mumps one after the other. I almost died bc of them when was 6.

I had them over Halloween of 1982. I was in 3rd grade. My friend from my class diagnosed me in the school bathroom. LOL

Most of you are too young to remember (or maybe not even born yet lol) but in 1982 there was a huge scare of people poisoning the Halloween candy so many parents were keeping their kids home that year. The reason for the scare was because some psycho had poisoned some Tylenol earlier that year.

So while I missed out on Halloween, so did most of my friends.

Yes, my twin sister got it, then me and the our poor little brother got it twice as bad as we did. He had it everywhere including in his eyelids and down his throat, etc. My sis and I were 7 so he's have been about 3. My sis also found out that she's allergic to calamine lotion then.

yes. I got it from my sister who got it from her friend from school. I ended up giving it to my younger brother.

Nope! I was also around 7 kids at different times and never caught them. To go to college I had to have the chicken pox shot.
