    I thought everyone gets it once in their life, usually as a child, and the later you get it the worse it is, so as an adult when you get it good night sweet princess

    maybe you have a mild infection with very minor symptoms which passed unnoticed ?
    Wow is that possible?

    If you don't have chickenpox during childhood you're more susceptible to shingles later in life, which is awful.

    and like that kid my face was covered in pus
    lol my friends and family said they wanted to vomit when they looked at me.
    good news is it wasnt as uncomfortable as youd think though.
    helped my vanity: i was no longer embarassed by acne lol.

    Nope, it's not weird. My mum didn't get chickenpox until her late twenties when she caught it off me .

    I thought some people get it even after?
    Yes, it's very very unlikely but it is possible. As are most things so to speak
