Burning Love – Part 2

The bad thing about shingles it comes in two parts and it seems the ending is worse than the beginning. After three days of suffering through the beginning with the infected areas feeling like your skin was on fire there is a small time period where they are less severe and you think you are getting better. You soon realize this virus has a strange sense of humour as the ending begins to show up with even more burning and discomfort thanjoker at the start. fire

Took my pain pills and anti shingle pills and am not walking around in a daze. I can see why they tell you not to drive when taking them but am thankful I have them. The good news is the end is in sight so I focus on that.

I have watched the first season of Quantico and did sneak out Sunday morning to do two sets of laundry as I change the bedding every night to make sure the virus was not still alive as it seems it can survive 24 hours. I should be past the stage where I am contagious and don’t have tosmiling sun be so concerned about contamination.

On another subject, the weather sure has been great and even with those showers yesterday it has been a great week. I am hoping to get out soon to enjoy it as we are all ready heading to the end of July.

Even though this nasty bug caught me I still consider myself fortunate as I year reach the 3/4 of a century mark very soon and still feel I am in pretty good shape. Once healthy again I will be off to Ohio and discover new things and do some train chasing.

Have a great day.

One thought on “Burning Love – Part 2

  1. Hi Walter… I was very sorry to hear that you have been under the weather lately but it sounds like you are definitely on the mend … I was fortunate to be in the age group where you did not have to pay for the vaccine. But if it’s not one thing it’s another… I’ve already had one heart attack so I kind of stay focused on that part of my health. And if you can survive renal calculi which is kidney stones then you can survive herpes zoster which is the medical name for shingles. Sorry Walter being in the medical field previously I tend to always think of the medical terms for some of these nasty viruses. Nevertheless it sounds like you’re doing great with being at the three quarter of a Century mark in life which I haven’t reached yet. And I hope you continue to do well so you can continue to share you’re amazing videos and pictures. Stay safe out there.
