In brief: Depends

If you truly had wild chickenpox and not another blister producing illness, it provides lifelong immunity.
At one time there were 2 million cases/yr in the us and docs did not want you to come to their office, so mom's labeled it.Those that have had bone marrow transplants or immune defects may be at risk.

In brief: Chicken pox

Most likely not, you are probably still immune at your age.
