Who among us had a "childhood disease" more than once? I had English Measles (10 days, rubeola),


German Measles (3-day, rubella ) 6 times as a child & adult, roseola, and 5th disease. Lots of rash-causing infections, all mild except the English Measles. Vaccines don't always work for me. What are your experiences?

    Amazing! Shingles twice as well. I am blown away by that. Thank you for telling us about all this and I am going to read your recipes closely and try them. Bless you.

    So sorry you had shingles! The dad of a friend here was in bed for almost a year with it.

    Good for you. I really got tired of the red rashes and fevers.

    That sounds itchy! I've heard several people complain of having chix pox twice. The 10-day measles was the only really bad case I had - got pneumonia and a fever so high it dried my eyes out so I could not move them.

    I had chicken pox only once, but at age 13 - the only one in my class to have it. Embarrassing and itchy.
