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 than at the start.
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 to 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.
Remember you can’t change the past or the future so concentrate on today and make sure you get the most out of it.
Have a great day.
