~*I Have Shingles*~

For the past three weeks or so I have had ~Shingles~. I was 16 the last time I had this strain of Chickenpox & had forgotten how painful it can be. This time I have it down my right side the blisters forming mostly on my arm & chest which have now become very itchy so am hoping the worst is over. This time last week I could hardly lift my right arm, my whole right side was in pain & found it very hard to stay awake during the day. I normally survive on around 6 hours sleep a day but lately have been ~hitting the hay~ by 8.30 every night.


Am looking forward to getting back to normal soon......
Hope you are all having a great day.....

Oh, Lyn, this is terrible! They are not fun. I do hope it will pass quickly & not be too painful!

Lifting you for healing ...

Oh Lyn that is awful.
Must be the time for such things. My 2 yo grandson got chicken pox last Tuesday so I am looking after him 5 days a week instead of 2 because he can't go to creche. We are so lucky that he only has a very mild case as he had the injections they all get now
Hope it is improving for you

Hi Lyn,
I never had Chicken Pox when I was a child but got it about 4 years ago when I was 30....not fun. I don't think I have ever been so sick in all my life!
Hope you make a quick recovery.
Thinking of you,
