LOL! More life F your daughter's life. Chickenpox is an extremely uncomfortable disease(not to mention it could kill you in certain cases.) I wish your daughter well, OP.

13- chickenpox is not a disese you dummy its what EVERYONE HAS FOR 4-5 DAYS

13 - true, but at the same time, you want to have a kid get that done and over with at a young age. From what I know, having that at an older age will screw you up good

Also, 26 - just because apparently "everyone gets it" it doesn't make it any less of a disease. Flawless logic you've got there. Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease caused by a strain of the herpes virus called varicella-zoster and once you have it it remains dormant in your system for life, much like other forms of herpes.

A large majority are trolls, the rest could be either a few people who found a reason to vote YDI, or whine because "it's not a true FML". But since the current (by the time my comment is posted) "YDI" numbers are still in the tens, not that much people think it's a YDI. Unlike most FML's when both numbers go into the hundreds real quick.

My brother and I got it twice also, it was worse the second time for my brother, he got them all over, like on the bottom of his feet, inside his mouth, it was sad....or so I heard, I was to young to remember.

If she's been vaccinated properly, FYL. If you hadn't had her vaccinated- YDI!!!!! People that don't vaccinate their kids are utterly ridiculous. F your kids life, if you've neglected to vaccinate her for this or anything else! Weigh the risks.

#1- Shoulda vaccinated the kid. #2- Yeah, that sucks and I sympathise with needing a break....... but b/c of neglecting to vaccinate, the little girl is suffering a million times worse than OP!

natural immunity is better than the vaccine and chicken pox is not a deadly condition for the most part so many parents prefer their children to just get it at a young age, some even set up play dates especially so their kids can catch it and get it over with.

Anyone who says they've never had it or know ppl who have must be all young ppl since like before vaccines abt 20 yrs ago or so it was very common. They r worse as an adult I guess cuz ur immune system isnt as good as dealing with the virus as a kids,,,

Since DocBastard isn't around today I'll have to chime in here and say that 187 is right. 149, and anyone who believes in this old wive's tale, please don't do this to your kid. Even if you can't vaccinate for whatever reason, "pox parties" are a disgusting and harmful practice.

Then leave her alone with a baby sitter...?

Yank fan- there are services to hire sitters/nannies while on holiday. I used to work for one. Very popular for families who can't afford to travel with their nanny.

72 - Depends what country the family lives in. In Germany it was quite common to have an aupair/nanny. However I currently live in the states and can't even afford daycare. My friends and family help watch my son when my husband and I work.

I live in Australia and with the average income being between $40,000 - $60,000 a year not many people can afford a nanny/permanent carer for their children

54- while that may be the case those services probably won't even take OP's kid because she has the chicken pix. They would want to run the risk of exposing the other children. Also if OP just dropped her sick child off at a baby sitting service then everyone would just call her an unfit mother.

113 - it's not a place like a daycare. The sitter comes tithe family. When you sign up for the service you let the company know whether you will care for sick children or not. There are no other kids though. I'm not advocating that this is a good Idea, just simply if OP was stupid enough she could actually leave her daughter with a sitter.

Well, it's apparent by the blurriness of his profile picture that not only does he lack deductive reasoning, but also the cognitive abilities to take a proper picture.

is says your location is hawaii though?

i misread, i thought it was a "now we cant go" fml. take your boyfriends dick out of your ass and chill, shrike.

Hahaha! And even if she had misread it like that, and the OP hadn't gone on vacation yet, people DO live in Hawaii. What, you thought only tourists are allowed there? I guess you were too busy fantasizing about dicks inside assholes to think your argument through, little girl.

If you take a child with chickenpox to the hospital the doctor will just send her home. There's no point in taking her to the hospital it would be a waste of time and money.

It doesn't work all the time though. Many adults who had it as a kid are now catching chicken pox and having more severe reactions. Best to just let the kid go through it for a few days and never have to worry about it later.

I don't think it's exactly "many." From my understanding, it's rare to catch chickenpox as an adult when you've already had the vaccine. And it's also possible for people who haven't gotten the vaccine, and had the virus as a child to get chickenpox as an adult for a second time. Both are unlikely.
