I had it for 3 months and felt like I was going to die.
    Geez you did have a tough run of it! You poor thing, i guess you weigh up being sick when you could have potentially prevented it, why wouldn't you protect yourself, noone wants to get super sick.

    Thanks CG I hope so too, coughing fits have reduced but sneezing and breathing and sleeping is agony, just have to dose up on painkillers so i can manage some sort of sleep and not move at all while in bed.

    I think i read it somewhere through FB or something, but yeah it was very shocking to hear that this poor boy had nothing else wrong with him but just died from Chicken pox

    I havent read the whole thread or the article as the whole anti vax thing infuriates me more then just about any other topic. I can only imagine though. Is it from the AVA..? Thing that I dont get is they are not happy to have vaccines but if there child does get a vaccine preventable disease they are more then happy for them to have the truckload of medication they'll need and the enormous amount of medical intervention that might be required. It just doesn't make sense.
