Stalled out

This shingles thing is for the birds! THE BIRDS!!

It's weird, though. Everyone's reaction has been, oh my god! That SUCKS!

I don't hurt, though. I feel like I've been hit by a mac truck, but I don't have the owies. My FIL says that's later though. I don't know, what if I'm taking genital herpes medicine for nothing, though? What if I don't have shingles, but some exotic skin disease they haven't named yet? What if they call it Art Nerd Disease, after me??

I'm probably posting this so that I can then start hurting, and then get better. This sucks, but not for the reason that most people think the shingles suck.

I am so weird, and such a hypochondriac.

Hey I found you from Zygote Daddy. I had shingles when I was 10. 10! The doctor's couldn't believe it. All five of them actually came in to look at me to prove it was real. I was a medical marvel. So if YOU feel like you're 80 imagine how I felt. And yeah, wearing sleeves in the summer (why does it always happen in the summer??) was the worst. Mine were on my back so it hurt to wear a shirt. I just would lay on the couch on my tummy without a top.

I'm starting to get hives just thinking about it. Thanks for the memories:-) But really, I hope you feel better soon!
