Definately before I got them--I was 17. I caught them from my 5 year old cousin. They weren't itchy little bumps then, they were dime to quarter size welts, and were painful. I had a high fever, and was nearly hospitalized.
I had them EVERYWHERE...Even in my mouth. Ew!
Had lots of neighbors bringing their kiddos over so I could give it to them though...So I guess I served a good purpose.
I remember the conversation I had with my cousin on the telephone too..lol
"Jessi, you're a chicken?"
"Yes, you turned me into a chicken!"
"But you won't cry, huh, cuz big kids don't cry when they get the chicken pox."
