My Chicken Pox Virus Diary

Dear Diary,

Hi! My names Varicella but people call me Chicken Pox, I first started out as Varicella Zoster Virus but I grew up, but I still have to grow to be Shingles! When I was little there were seven other herpesviruses known to infect human hosts in a similar way to how I did. People called it my "taxonomy" whatever that means. Anyways they organized us into different groups and such to fit the humans stereotyping process. I fit into the order Herpesvirales, the family Herpesviridae, in a subfamily called Alphaherpesvirinae, my genus is Varicellovirus, and my species is Human Herpesvirus Three. I don't mean to cause people pain or for them to be annoyed with me but it is my nature to infect people simply because it's what I was made to do. Humans characterize me by being a blister-like rash on their skin and they get a fever as well from their immune system trying to fight me off. Okay now you know a bit about me but I gotta go infect this kid that my host just coughed on.

Here's a diagram that the humans made for my "classification"

Dear Diary,

So the little boy I infected today with the help of my past host who coughed on him, does not know he's infected yet. His symptoms should start in about 4-7 days since he is only a kid but if he was an adult it would be 10-21 days, then he'll be itching like crazy. I guess i should tell you how i exactly infected him. Basically i entered his body through his nose and his mouth even though if he touched one of my old hosts blisters or liquid from the blister i could have infected him that way too, or if somehow he touched his saliva. Also! kinda random but if a lady was pregnant with chickenpox her baby would carry it as well. anyways once i entered the boys nose and mouth his body tried to fight me off with the humans silly 3 lines of defense, that didn't work at all. as i attack his nervous system as i do with all my hosts, my viral cells will replicate. his white blood cells will learn to fight me but as they do that ill give him the rash that people know me by. although i know he could beat me i'll come back later on in his life as shingles.

Here is a picture of the little boy i infected

Dear diary,

I guess that the last couple days were hard because usually I can cause about 8,900 deaths a year but those were old days in 1990 before people learnt a way to fight me off, now I can only cause 7,000. the little boy i was in the middle of infecting when i last wrote has now beaten me so he did not die which is good for him but bad for my self esteem. See he lived in the united states where The "varicella vaccine" is given by injection when kids are between 12 and 15 months old so he was one of those kids.

If he lived say in the tropics it would have been a lot easier to beat him instead of him beating me. The vaccine was made from a live but weakened version of me making human cells already know what i look like, so it is about 20 million times harder for me to infect them. stupid Americans........

Dear Diary,

So Today I found out that  Humans purposely try to "hide and protect" themselves from me or get rid of me, how rude! they are trying to stay away from those I have infected and talking to doctors and getting vaccinated to prevent me. it just makes me feel unwanted. acyclovir is the name of the antiviral medication the humans have created to treat the humans I have infected because my rash is too itchy and uncomfortable for them and contagious, get over it, humans.
