No, not THAT vaccine.
My shingles vaccine!
I really, really, really do not want to get shingles again.
Since it’s been a month since I got my second dose of that other vaccine, I was ready to tackle this one.
I’ll probably feel crappy this weekend, but it will totally be worth it.
Please consider getting your shingles vaccine – shingles was painful, annoying, miserable, ugly – all things to be avoided.
I actually took more knock out all the pain type drugs with shingles than I did with my kidney stone. This was much worse – and sleeping was just not happening.
I had shingles in December – so 5 months later, my skin is still mottled looking from all the puss filled blisters, and scabs. And it is still numb. And I know it could be much worse – many people have actual nerve pain instead of just numbness.
A friend of mine had a very odd case of shingles, when he was 4. He said he still had numb spots well into adulthood. We’re talking 20+ years of weird numbness.
Just get the vaccine.
