That time I had Measles

So let’s go to a less emotional yet unique occurrence. Going back in memory a bit I remember while with my bio mom she took us to a clinic and got us vaccinations. They had to chase me around to get my shots. Unfortunately MMR wasn’t part of that vaccination.

Later staying with my bio-dad and his girlfriend. I remember feeling really sick and then I started getting spots and I was worried I was getting a different looking version of the chicken pox. It was a bit of a confusing experience as a kid. I remember staying on a couch downstairs for over a week. I remember them telling me later that what I had was the measles. Considering the lack of medical care and really even much home nursing, I guess I’m just a survivor. I later also had the MMR vaccine for school shot records so I guess now I’m pretty well protected against it by being double covered.

Nowadays I’m just glad my children don’t have to live through chicken pox and measles like I did as a kid.

  1. My sister and I had measles at the me time. We lived in much better circumstances than you did. We were treated at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital with penicillian injections, sent home with some other meds, rode out the storm. I don’t know if we were vaccinated for measles, I’m thinking not since we had it.
