Hi everyone. I just wanted to say thank you to ALL. You are all very kind and I'm sorry that you suffer. I mean that.
Truthfully i never understood the true value of being in a forum until I joined this one. In a house full of people who love you and are taking care of you, which is the case for me, shingles can STILL make you feel so very much alone. The love and care is precious and so very much appreciated but you just can't know unless you've been there, not that I would wish this on anyone EVER.
The rash is back again on the right side of my nose and my right eye is swelling. So the pain is sure to follow. My husband and my young son are scrambling around, making sure everything is in place. Feels like we're going into battle. I'm just laying here and crying, while telling myself not to because it just makes it worse. After 8 years of this, you would think I would be used to this. But I fear the pain. I feel it coming on and I'm so tired of hospitals. Going to be a long night and everyone is nervous and dreading. Like so many times before, I hate to see my family go thru this. They cry nearly as much as I do at times. This is where I'm supposed to say something brave and say it's all going to be okay and the meds will help and i'm not alone and a dozen more positive things but the pain is coming and i'm afraid.
