Or how I despise the Herpes Zoster virus.
I’d preferred an allergic reaction, but now that I’m hurting like a band around the chest I recognize the symptoms. At least it is a light case of it compared to the last time – that episode really hurt. It may be that the pain management I do is helping as well. So I will have to ride this out, since I hate what prednisone does to me.
Now most people would go to the doctor over any little thing, but I don’t unless I can’t get an illness to end (exempting CFS, of course). Bronchitis, pre-pneumonia, and sinusitis I’ve had so many times that I’m a pro at dealing with them. That and antibiotics barely working on me anymore makes the choice to endure rather easy. Not to mention it doesn’t waste more tax payers dollars than necessary.
The itching is at a minimum, at least!
As much as I hate whining, perhaps it would be wise of me to document my health issues for posterity here on the blog. Somehow, I doubt I’ll be consistent on it. Spreading negativity isn’t my idea of fun and it is inconsiderate of others. But hey, there aren’t that many readers, right? Have to find a silver lining somewhere…
