Indeed! Adult Chicken POX is horrible. I thought I had it as a baby, but come to find out it was the measles. I caught it from my son when he started kindergarten. It was so painful! Took me out of work for 3 weeks.

It had just been released when they were asking if I wanted to give it to my kids. I decided not to for the very reason you state Della...there was no data available on the long term. I would much rather my kids went through what they did which was nothing compared to what I had as an adult.
