If you follow me on twitter, you know that I have shingles. Really body? Isn't this an old person thing? Apparently not. I had chicken pox when I was about 4 or 5 so I thought that was that. Apparently the chicken pox lies dormant in the nerves and sometimes can come back as shingles. Enjoy everyone! You can get shingles too!
So I got a prescription for Valtrex, which apparently helps shorten the duration of chicken pox or shingles. I also have a very strong antihistamine called Atarax, which I have taken before and actually made me fall asleep mid sentence. Oh, and my doctor also suggested I get a donut to sit on until my butt clears up :|
I think I'll pass on the butt donut.
Thanks for all your well wishes. And I would suggest not touching my butt unless you want shingles.
Also, the scale at the doctor's office lies! I can't be that fat. I was wearing a cardigan on the scale which has to add something.
