In brief: Yes.
It is indeed possible that your body did not make sufficient levels of antibodies to make you immune to chickenpox.
But it is also possible that you never had chickenpox in the first place; multiple other viruses produce similar-looking rashes, and back in the day, many doctors assumed every rash was either measles or chickenpox.
