WHAT the...

As if I needed any proof that the last couple of months have been, shall we say, stressful, I have SHINGLES. Yes, my friends, shingles. The last time I had them, I was pregnant and no I'm not pregnant. But I think it is a ugly, painful right-on-the-side-of-my-poor-face reminder that I need to slow down. Breathe. Even though staying so busy I can't think helps dealing with "it", having shingles sucks.

REALLY sucks.

Whatever.

Oh my, what a shame... Yes, your body is telling you to slow down.. My son, Rich had shingles in his right eye and on the side of his head.. It was so painful he had to be isoated in the hospital.. he had his own nurse, his own stephycope (Spelling ? ) everything had to be carefully taken our of his room and no visitors... It took him awhile to get over it ~ but he learned to slow down with his job and all is well.. Hope you recover quickly as Shingles are not nice...
Have a great Wednesday...from Iowa

Oh that totally does suck!!! Good thing there is Acyclovir you probably were not able to use that when you were pregnant.

I would not suggest googling "shingles" because man does it pull up the nastiest, grossest bunch of pictures you'd ever want to see.

I am really hoping your case is better than those poor souls. At any rate, I hope you're better soon.
