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.

I got them in third grade. The whole class got them. We were out three at a time. My husband got them as an adult.

Had them at the end of my sophomore year of high school, during a band trip. Don't who gave them to me but I do know only one kid got them.

I remember that. I was 7 and that was all over the news in the Chicago area, and I think it was either the year before, or the year after, there were reports of razor blades put in apples and candy that people were handing out. Ever since then everything had to be wrapped from a manufacturer and no more homemade stuff :(

Quoting mypbandj:

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.

Yup had them twice, at 6 years old (got them from my brother) and again when I was 10. Found out the day before I was supposed to get my cast removed from having a broken wrist. Talk about super itchy!
