So I had the chicken pox bad in first grade. Missed two weeks of school.

Early March 2007, I got the shingles. The same virus, coming out of dormancy to be a pain in the ass again.

Now again, I have the fricken chicken pox!!! What the hell!?!???



Anyone else had it three times??

Aren't you only supposed to get that once? You sure it wasn't the miesels and
something else before? Parents usually make their kids sleepover with kids
that are infected so they can get it over with.

No I distinctly remember an episode of Full House or something when someone got the chicken pox for the second time even though they thought that was impossible.

Bizarre. Definitely not normal.

Do you have some kind of chronic medical illness? Asthma? Take steroids for anything?

Unless there's an obvious explanation for why, at your age, your immune system isn't working properly, I don't think it's unreasonable to get worked up for a few things. Talk to your doc, if you haven't already.

What would the world do without Full House?

I got it once as a kid. I got it the worst out of my three brothers by getting it last. Awful. I can't imagine it three times.

Get better soon brah.

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone.

Yeah, I have Crohn's Disease.. I've taken steroids, but it's been a few years. I workout regularly to try and stay as healthy and strong as possible... And yeah, doctor took bloodwork to see if anything out of the ordinary.

Ive had chicken pox bad when I was young, small pox, and have chronic cold sores on my face.

Different strands of herpes have been kicking my rear since I was born. I feel for you bro.

Cold sores have become less frequent since I finished high school but I still get them 2 or 3 times a year, and I got small pox on purpose before I went to Iraq(as everyone did, although it slapped me around more than most others because not only were our immune systems weak due to so many vaccinations, but I am also more susceptible to herpes strands than the average joe).

Just to go for the full nelson I will probably eventually end up with crotch rot as well, seems to be my luck.
