Okay...another posting made me think about this...I had some of the "funkiest" diseases that children were not supposed to get any longer.
Was it my Mother's fault...after all, she was a nurse in a city hospital, did she bring them home to me? Were my genes just ready for them? Were the vaccines not quite as good as they became???
Yeyt, from the time I was born...late in the year of 1959, until my "adult"-you know...18, lol! years, I had:
Scarlet Fever at 4
Whooping Cough at 6
German Measles (w/ my sister) at 8...worse thing ever!!! Having to lay in bed with total darkness!!!!
Mumps at age 9 (one side only-have always been afraid of that one!!!)
Chicken pox at age 7...again, w/ my sister
Mono-Dang it all, if only it had been for the "right" reasons, but, nope, my good ole sis again...at Thanksgiving!! (Do you know how tough it is to smell at that good stuff and only be able to enjoy V8????- at 14
So..please share you childhood "wonders" with me!!!
And, thanks and Good Health to you and yours!
