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, as an infant. DH got it when he was 14. DD got the vaccine so she won't get it but idk if I'll have ds vax'd with that. I actually thought it was one that they offer but don't automatically do and was surprised to find out that my dd had been vax'd. Bad mom for not knowing what went into her...I know.

 Yes,I did.But,I am one of the "lucky" ones.The pox never showed up on my skin.I had them in my mouth,down my throat.....Boy,did that suck! Turns out that if you get the chicken pox-on the inside-like I did.When the pox starts bursting/scabbing over....it makes you really sick.(Throwing up,nauseous)the stuff that drains out of it ends up in your stomach.Sorry,tmi I know.

Back when I was a kid (maybe you too), the chicken pox vaccine was still newish and was optional, not routine.  I didn't know it became routine either until I had my daughter in 2009 and saw the vaccination schedule.

Yes. I have four sisters and we all had it at the same time. Neither of my kids have had it.

Just to be clear.... Just because she was vaccinated for Vericella(Chicken Pox) that doesn't mean that she will never get the disease.

My brother and I never got it so when I was around 12 I think we both got the vaccine
