      • Oh, haaaa. I misread that too. I just texted my SIL who is nurse to ask her about it. Duh.

          I actually had it twice. Apparently the first time was so mild it didn't take. Then one day I was acting odd and another parent said it was chicken pox, which my mother didn't believe because I had already had it, but sure enough by that evening it had broken out. So maybe I took yours?

            Do not want to go through that again. Although getting shingles did allow me to discover gabapentin, which has been awesome in helping me sleep. Crazy dreams with that stuff.
            I got it (edit: THE SHOT) last summer and it was nothing.

                  Yeah, maybe. If so, thanks.

                  My siblings had it bad, and all I remember is my mother telling me that I was going to get it too. Has to be the closest I'll ever come to knowing what it's like sitting on death row (hopefully) waiting for the bullet to hit me.

                    The symptoms are worse as an adult to a significant degree.

                      I've heard that too, and in fact that's how my discussion with the doctor got started, when I asked him about that. He told me that I didn't really need to worry. Because I was in a household (and even shared a bedroom) with siblings who had it, he said that if I got tested for the antibodies, he was 99% certain the test would reveal I had them. That was good enough for me.

                      But I definitely got sold on the shingles vaccine. A friend of mine got a bad case on his legs, and even on his face, and described it as one of the most painful afflictions he ever had. Then, another guy I know told me he got them around his anus.

                      At that point I was like where do I get those Shingrix shots.

                        LOL.

                        I knew nothing about it -- I thought shingles was one of those things like berri-berri and cholera and gout that Brits got in the 19th century. Then my doctor said "you're scheduled for this" and I said "thank you sir may I have another."

                          That happened to my cousin when we were kids. It was very weird.
