Well Nan, now that we've all given you such a pleasant prognosis here... it's just that we did go through quite a period of time with Linda and she had it very bad.
I have heard of much milder cases. I do know that stress and illness (such as the flu, colds, etc.) will make it worse.
The kids who have had the chicken pox immunization may not be helping us who've had the chicken pox, but they won't be getting the shingles when they're older. You know how kids are, only thinking of themselves!!!
If you need anything, just yell. Okay, so yell rather loud or PM.
