Too busy for stuff like this!!!!

Some time ago I detected an irriitation in my back. Put it down to the skirt I was wearing - elastic waistband matters.
Fast forward to Wednesday - Slimming World to be precise ( oh another 2.5lb loss and Slimmer of the week award!) sorry I am rambling........so as I was bending over my fleece crept up to reveal some flesh! (too much information!) my pal Jill commented on a rash on my back. Well as I can't really see my back I wasn't alarmed - certainly couldn't feel any discomfort! A couple of other people commented too. A worried text later urged me to go to the doctor........turns out I have Shingles! I explained to the doctor I wasn't stressed, worried or such like and was too busy to take things easy.....but there you go!

  2. Shingles can be very painful.
    Lucky you got it on your back and not near your eyes, as someone I know once did. Very nasty.
    Hope you don't feel ill with it.

  7. Hope it's a mild dose. It can be nasty and linger for a long time. Take care.

  14. Must be all the renovating and Christmas crafting you're doing. You must slow down and rest or it will just get worse and take longer to run its course. Hope you're feeling better soon! Sending hugs {{{you}}}

  17. Oh no not that! I had that! You must keep warm. Use heat patches, hot water bottles. Rest up your legs, drink lots of water and you need lots of stressless sleep! IF NOTHING HELPS ASK FOR AN ANTI VIRAL CREAM AND DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! It can help attack it at the poiint of the rash. Even cold sore cream can help!
    BIG hugs being sent your way. Hope you get better soon!
