One of my brothers had it last year. We were discussing it today. He said it was so bad for him, he wouldn't wish it on his worst enemy. I thought that was a pretty stout statement and brought up his first ex-wife.... he said not even her. Must have been hell.
Sorry to hear you have to experience this. One of my children had shingles in her teens. I felt so sorry for her. It was a very painful experience. I've been getting the shingles vaccine for two years now and plan to continue.
Loc: Pinellas Park, Florida
Thanks for all the sympathies, but this outbreak on my face hasn't been terribly uncomfortable. It has spread a bit and I need to go to an ophthalmologist tomorrow to get the eye drops that prevent the shingles from causing eye ulcers. So much fun!
