Ok so it wasn't a doctor or anything but I thought it'd be nice for a change to hear about a good story.<br><br>
I currently have shingles (yes, if my ds catches the pox there will be a party in Tucson, don't worry I'll let everyone know) and went to urgent care tonight because the pain is so bad and my mw really wanted me to go. Anyways the doc prescribed me some antivirals and some vicodin. When I went to fill the rx the pharmacist asked if it were shingles. We got to talking and she asked if my 3 yr old had gotten the varicella vax. When I told her we don't vax she said, "oh good! You should really try to expose him, this is a good age." and then she went on to tell me how to expose him and then sort of whispered to me that she used to do some vaxes with her kids but don't do them anymore.<br><br>
I know a pharmacist isn't a doc or anything but I was still impressed and it was nice to hear a medical person say, "oh good!" instead of looking at me like I was going to kill my kids.

thats so cool that some of them are alright with it, and even encourage, even if not a doctor, the knowledge of their own family and friends could help, kwim?
