Well now that you've had chicken pox you're a candidate for shingles, talk to your doctor about a shingles vaccine.

As a kid I had the chicken pox, red measles, German measles twice, mumps and a variety of other diseases that were considered normal back then. Very few people had serious problems with them. I've always heard they are quite debilitating to adults.

Glad you're better.

I am 59 and they will not give me the vaccine for shingles. I understand you have to be 60 before they will give you the vaccine.

If you would have bought the Kimber instead of the Coltyou you might not have gotten the pox. I'm not sayin,just sayin. Happy to hear you are well. Just kidding about the Colt that is a good looking weapon.

Glad you're doing better. I was lucky enough to get shingles when I was 40. Totally not cool! The doctor said I could have recurring episodes in the future, but I can't have the vaccine until I'm 60....
