In case you missed my prepared statements to Twitter and Facebook, I learned yesterday that the terrible headaches/earaches/&c. I'd been experiencing were actually the early stages of (get this) SHINGLES, which pretty much blew up my face and scalp Sunday morning. I've spent insane amounts of time in bed since then letting my acyclovir do its thing, so hopefully I'm on my way ... well, not out of the WOODS necessarily, but closer to the area where the trees start thinning out. Also, I won't lose sight in my left eye.

I guess it's a bit better having a 70 year old man's disease (shingles) than a 8 year old kid's disease (my self-diagnosed ear infection from last week) - and, you know, despite all the pain and my rearranged face there ARE a lot worse things to have which I don't have.

Note to my brother: remember, I'm the "zen" one. This disease is caused by stress! Good God! You may EXPLODE in ...oh, let's say two years!

I think the worst part was last night's RAW was EXACTLY the reason Twitter was invented for ME, but I really wasn't up for much for those three hours beyond lying there without a laptop. Ah, well, the world's loss I'm sure.

Yeah, well, being passive doesn't mean you aren't stressing :)

This sounds really horrible. I take it you haven't told mom and dad yet? I didn't get a worried call from mom.

What scares me is that I probably have the same dormant strain of chicken pox that you did.

I actually had chicken pox a few years ago (like 2 or 3). (not SHINGLES!) I spent several days pretending I was an oatmeal bath mermaid. "Can't leave oatmeal bath... poxy chickens will kill me"

SHINGLES! sounds awful. I hope you feel better soon.

I called Mom and Dad second yesterday. Best answering machine message I ever left! (They've both had it, but were a lot older - and NOW I hear that there's a shot for it but you have to be a senior citizen to get it recommended....or something)

Yeah, they say that you pick up the virus when you get chicken pox - and then when your body is ripe, KABOOM.

I also want to thank the clever folks who sent me a surge of VYou questions all of a sudden...all of which will have to wait until I'm back in the office (and wearing a trendy headband) to get any answers or see my beautiful new face. I am planning on returning next Monday - although if I'd thought about it, I would have just taken the extra three days, BUT at the same time I don't want anybody catching on that the place manages to run just fine without me.

Had it a couple years ago, Zed - when I was 51 - mine was caught early, but quite painful and annoying for a couple of weeks. It wasn't all gone off me (mine was on my chest) for about a month even after the shot and the steroids. But the doc told me my case was extremely mild.

Get well soon

I had it around New Year's Day this past year, at the age of 37. It was awful--hurt like hell, and half my face was swollen. I still have a couple of scars on my forehead from it. My wife still laughs when she hears ads for the shingles vaccine--they always start 'Are you over 60?' But, to me, it's No Laughing Matter.
