    I really cant believe I just wrote that title. I always try and work on positivity but I am two weeks into Shingles and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
    My once 'beloved' husband had his shingle vaccination and thought it was a good idea to share it! I am not quite eligible, as you have to be 70. He now looks at me with a pride that says 'I'm glad I had that jab'.

    We are seeing less and less shingles these days thank goodness.
    I thought I might be able to do some family history and in short bursts I can concentrate.
    I really should get a grip and stop moaning, maybe tomorrow :(:mad:

    Very sorry to hear this...it is downright NASTY, I understand!! Friend had it!

    In Canada it's worse...you have to be between 65 and 70 to get it free...otherwise it costs $300+!!! We haven't had the shot.... gambling!

    Oh Amle - a big virtual {-(^^)-}from me. It is a really nasty thing to have.

    Whack your darling husband over the head with a copy of the Womans Weekly and tell him not to be so smug.

    My commiserations too, Amle. I can remember when my Mum had shingles - she wasn’t the sort of person who would give in to illness, but that was the one time when she had to admit that she was proper poorly {-(^^)-}

    A big hug from me too {-(^^)-}, I had a really mild dose a couple of years back and that was awful enough.
    Get better soon ():-)

    {-(^^)-} A smug hubby is not a good thing when one is not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon.

    Not anymore, Heather! Hubby paid $60.00 for it when I was so sick with them, but now I believe it is free after 50.

    No need to get a grip and you can moan all you like. Chicken pox virus hangs around in the system for ever. Then wham, one day when your defences are down up pops shingles. Horrid and I feel so sorry for you, you poor thing.
    I’ll be getting my vaccine in May. It free here after the age of 70. Hubby should too but being on chemo, I’m not sure he can. Must ask the question.
    {-(^^)-}Hope you get over this quickly

    Commiserations Amle. A couple of friends have had it and life for them was a misery until it cleared.

    I bit the bullet and forked out for the vaccination after seeing what they went through.
