Yes, it's hard not to scratch, but it burns so much more after scratching (I scratched once when it first started and I didn't yet realize what it was) that the thought of it takes away some of the temptation. May 8/6 come quickly for you and may this new doctor have some help for you.
Now that Hubcat is well into recovery and I've done the major stuff I had to have done for work, it's about time to go back to work--one more week of break. I've had some fun stealing time to make some LOLs but am very sad about the apparent demise of CATT. Is there any improvement with the accursed shingles? It's bad enough to have them at anytime, but I think it's even worse when it's hot. I do hope you are starting to feel better.
Ha! Thatllbetheday! Still, I am having fun pretending to be an author person! And if any book should be made into a movie, it's yours! Hey, NC -- wish me luck on Saturday. I have a book-signing in an Indianapolis bookshop. It will be a reading, too, and it will be the first time ever that I'll be reading from my novels. I give poetry readings, but I've never read from my books. I iz gonna suck! I'm hoping fiercely that I don't embarrass myself too much.
Well, that's a mixed blessing...about coming back to the same place if you got it again. It was painful/itchy but I heard it was really dangerous on the face. Do nawt wunt dat! I'm glad you're doing better, but let me know if you ever need anything. xox
Edin UR messages for a change....i've had those "trunk shingles" of which you speak...one side of body...doc was able to do initial diagnosis by phone over the weekend....i've had minor recurrences nearby areas but not nearly as severe as original....this was about 20 years ago and I was put on Tylonal & Codine...developed a food obsession...all I could think about was eating....planning my next feed while eating the first...I gained so much weight I was ashamed to go out during the day....thank G-d it all went away.
Thank you. Yes I do care. I feel bad that I wasn't able to meet Scott and the kitties after going all that ways, but I understood. Was nice my friend Sharon offered overnight accommodations! I do know Patty thinks the world of you, so you would be the first one she would contact I'm sure. When I went to see her, it was NC this, and NC that. You've made quite an impression on her. Our 3-way conversation was so much fun!! Yes, please let me know if you hear anything.
