Shingles are not only those things on roofs!I really thought that I would at least get to 50 years old before being diagnosed with a case of the shingles. Really! Who has time for shingles?!
A few things I've learned from this bout of sickness:
- You can't "share" it with those who've already had the chicken pox.
- You shouldn't be around pregnant women or infants.
- Even good makeup can't cover it up when it's smack dab above your eye! (Didn't learn that on the websites:)
- "After you get better from chickenpox, the virus "sleeps" (is dormant) in your nerve roots." Then it wakes up! A visit from chickenpox's evil cousin, not fun!
