If it aint one thing.... its 20

Well don't this just stink! Im so mad right now which I know aint helpin' the situation none atall. I knew I felt "funny" last night and my eye was kinda twitchy but kept saying nahh its all in your head its not its not. well I woke up this morning and THEIR IS NO MISTAKING IT. I have flippin shingles again. IM in tears IM so angry. Not to mention it HURTTTTTS. Its all up in my ear down my neck and over to my bottom lip and my right eye is all ewey. Dr said probably the stress from everything my body is going through and the interferon (rebif) kills my immune system. ANy time my body freaks or gets the least bit of infection I break out in a heap of shingles. So not only is the shingles invading my body my blood pressure is out of control. The other meds are not helping but I figure it is because IT HURTS!
If you have ever had shingles... you understand. Chicken pox itch, shingles feel as if you are on fire and nothing will make it stop unless they knock you out. or give you meds that make you crazy (lyrica) and well I dont have a rubber room here at home. SO I refuse to take lyrica.
so Im goin back to bed and pray.
This is to the point of ridiculous. Whats the bad part? I can't go home to see my family this weekend for christmas. ITs been 2 years since I have seen them and their aint a blame thing I can do about it. but cry. AND THAT AINT HELPIN. I thought what about us just moving it to them coming here (I cant ride well in a car right now I get soooo sick because of the meds and add shingles (the meds for it) to that and it gets ughmm MESSY) But dr said that aint gonna work either. Defeats the purpose of keeping everything low key quiet and stress free, not alot of people around with germs and viruses (I still cant take flu shot because of interferon and shingles) so I am just sad. SO forgive me for being all mopey in this post. But ya know ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. When do you just draw the line.
we are at the point wise tales or whatever remedy their is we will do it to get rid of these blame things. I know it is a long shot to be well by Christmas but I can HOPE huh?
I have to give props to my dr and his staff they are so wonderful to me. I called told em what was up and man they were on it to get me the meds as quick as possible to try to keep me out the hospital. THey know what a rough time we have had with this crapp. so I thank them tremendously for all their help. They truly are good to us! AND MY neighbors (David and Diane) for helping with Taking and picking up Bella while John is working. Ok Im gonna go lay back down and put the pillow over my head because my OCD NEIGHBOR (not david and diane they arent anal crack heads) is Mowing his freakin lawn (HELLO IT IS FLIPPIN DECEMBER YOU HAVE NO GRASSSSSSSS) and blowing off his driveway. NOISE HURTS. so gotta figure away to block the noise. OR MOVE!

I'm going to hope that wherever ou celebrate Christmas that Ol' Saint Nick brings you one of those nice, shiney paint ball guns. You know what I mean? A girl has to arm herself from those nasty OCD-grass mowin' and blowin'-kinda neighbors.

And Santa, don't forget to pack lotsa pink paint balls. Just so Mr. PITA knows where the shots came from!

I hope tomorrow is better for you, Ladybug.

So sorry to hear that you are having an even tougher time. When it goes bad, it really goes bad. I am giggling, because I was off to take care of the boys this morning and guess what I had hubby doing, mowing the lawn to get rid of all the leaves that blew into the front lawn. Joe told me last night, that the neighbors are going to think he has lost his mind, cutting the grass in 20 degree weather and in December! Maybe you better shoot me with that paint ball gun!!!! Love ya and sending you get well wishes and keeping you in my prayers!

Say it isn't so! Bless your heart. I pray that God will take these shingles away now! Hang in there. Big cyber hugs.

Cheryl Wray said...

Oh girl, I'm praying that your shingles ease off as Christmas gets closer. My Mom has chronic shingles and, until she got them, I never truly understood how awful they can be. So I totally sympathize. :-(

I hope you have a good week!

Drea said...

Take care. I'll be praying for you.

Bless your heart Nancy. I've been thinking about you and so hoping that things were better under control.

I've added you (a long time ago) to my prayer list and I'll keep it going.

Love to you all for a Merry Christmas.
