Shingles (and not the roofing kind)
Shingles is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which is the same thing that causes chicken pox. If you have never had chicken pox, you won’t get shingles, however, you can get chicken pox from someone who has shingles though!
I'm feeling a sharp burning pain in my thigh (where the rash is) I have blisters and red skin, it's just awful. I really feel for burn victims, for I can only imagine what they're going through is many times worse than what I am dealing with. I have Vicodin but am not excited about taking it, it really knocks me into space for a few days even after I'm done taking it. Maybe if I just nibble on a pill it will give me some relief.
The really bad part is we just returned from a weeks vacation with our daughter and grandchildren, I sure hope the little ones don't get it. Fortunately I have a whole lot of fresh pictures to tie me over till I get to snuggle and play with them again.
This is nothing you would wish on your worst enemy.
