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.

Yeah but I can hardly remember it. I think I was 7. I still have a scar on my forehead that I hate. People are always like "Why do you have a hole on your forehead?" X_x

Nope, neither me or my brother ever got them as a child either. And that was in the days when your parents tooks you around everyone and tried to make you get them lol. However, my dad never had them until he was an adult (and it was bad then). So I am guessing that is how it would be for us as well, except that my mom went ahead and got us the vaccination for it after we were teenagers and still had not had it.

I got then in 4th grade and 6th grade, it SUCKED the second time. I was exposed so many times as a kid too but never got them till then and was just a few months away till they had the vaccine.
