I'm DISGUSTING!!!

I'm only doing this because of multiple requests. You asked for it!!! I was embarrassed to even show the doctor because they are so nasty.

Those with weak stomachs may want to look away now. I took these pictures yesterday and it was really hard to get the angle. The rashes are all over my ENTIRE right thigh (and butt... I won't show you those pics!). Lets just say that you won't be seeing me in a swimsuit any time soon. So for those who don't know about shingles... it is a reappearance of the chicken pox virus brought on by stress, low immune system or age. I guess it is a long process. The rashes stay around for about 3 weeks and the pain stays more like 5-6 weeks. SORRY JARED!!! He won't even get close to me and I don't totally blame him.

Check out the size of the pills I have to take. I keep waiting for one to become lodged in my throat. I won't even get started on how much I had to pay for the big blue pills. I was actually kind of embarrassed to pick them up because Valtrex is prescribed for herpes (the STD). Plus I was asking about nursing while taking it. He probably wondered what was going on....

Have I whined enough...Do you feel bad for me yet? :)

Shingles huh? I didn't even know that still existed, it sounds like something from the 1800's. I fell bad for you though, that really sucks. And those pills. I think I would be crushing them up in applesauce!!
