Who in the world is 38 and shingle?
There are actually more of us than you think. I have been surprised by the amount of people crying out that they, too, have struggled with this same issue at some point in their lives.
It's easy to get down about my situation. It can be painful at times. But with the right dose of feel-goody medicine, everything seems ok.
Having friends and family who are sympathetic is a big bonus. I even have a great friend here from Venezuela to help me in my time of need. Having dear friends is important when you're 38 and shingle.
Amigos, as the saying goes: "Be kind to the people around you, because you never know what battles they are facing." (or something like that)
Shingleness isn't for everyone. But for those whose lives it seems to affect, be at peace and be happy. For this, too, shall pass.
P.S. No blisters were exploded during the writing of this post.
