I have shingles.
I’m very, VERY thankful that so far it is a mild case.
I don’t have a rash on my back
(although I have itching & soreness),
but I’ve had pain for several days now.
(that’s why I wasn’t surprised when the Dr. said it was shingles).
It has been getting a little worse each day
but it’s still not as bad as other people have had.
If I sit and do nothing (very hard for me to do)
the pain subsides, but as soon as I start doing something
it keeps increasing until it feels like a knife in my back.
It was interesting trying to make dinner last night.
By the time I finished cooking,
I thought I was starting to look like
the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I’m hoping I’ll still get to do some sewing.
I’m working on finishing some projects for my granddaughters.
Last night I tried to work on my new “Happy Planner”.
I reasoned to myself, “I’ll be sitting down. I’ll be writing.”
But after a few minutes, the pain in my back was saying,
“Stop it. Go relax.” I thought I was relaxing…
I’m praying it will not get any worse.
I’m taking these HUGE pills (I hate taking even Tylenol!)…
We have a big conference coming up in two weeks.
I’m not worrying about it.
Seriously. Not at all.
I’ll be there, Lord willing.
And I’ll be done with another chapter of
“Stories to Tell My Grandchildren”.
Here’s the “Happy Planner” I was working on last night…
It’s really more like a Scrapbook, Planner, Journal rolled into one.
You can customize it to fit what your needs & likes are.
I’ll post some pictures of the inside as I work on it.
It’s a lot of fun adding pictures, stickers, and quotes.
Thanks for reading.
