Being Sick in Bed as a Kid

Maybe the chicken pox was the longest running childhood illness. They jumped and popped out and wanted to be known in the largest way. Their itching is their way in making big. The itching could literally drive one up over a hill and back down again.
The after effects carried us down a slick gravel path, making us think we were well and smooth again. Some of us have them easy and some of us have them rough. Either way they can be a tormenter, especially as a kid. There are a few rememdies that seem to ease and some that make worse. We’re extremely lucky if we make it through without scars.
