If we didn't have bad luck we would have no luck at all.
This past six months it has been one thing after another within the family and it's all starting to catch up on me. Why? Well I now have shingles..........
Luckily this is not the first time I have had shingles, so I sort of know what's what with it. The last time I had shingles was the beginning of April, 1984. Right before I gave birth to our son. Caused quite a kerfuffle, as it's not something they saw in the birthing unit every day. Add into the fact it was right around my body where my bra strap would have been and they weren't even sure if I could breast feed our son or not.
It's in the same place as last time, and so far like last time, it's not painful but awfully itchy. So on Friday I had to drive down to our doctors office to have someone look at it so I could get some antibiotics.
The cause of this is probably stress. I am still coughing and bringing up phlegm. Oh well onwards and upwards as they say (((SIGH)))
