A test showed I am immune to the chicken pox virus. How can that be if I never had it?

You had chickenpox.
It was either not diagnosed or a very minor case.

In brief: But you did !!!

Studies have shown that in excess of 90% of those adults who thought they never had chickenpox have blood evidence they did.
This can be when they had fewer spots than expected, or were mislabeled something like hand/foot/mouth which can look similar.
