my SIL Stacey!!!!!!
Shingles it is. And it’s really hurting like a motherfer and is wildly attractive to boot. I am the elephant man….
I’ve had this once before in my life but that was around my ribs (also on the left side…Hmmmmm). As bad as that was this is worse. Thankfully it has steered clear of eyes and ears (thus far) but it is wholly annoying to have a nose that is numb but constantly itches while the rest of my cheek throbs and someone sticks pins in my upper lip. Yeah…gimmie more of that…
to be philosophical about it, this is my body’s way of saying KNOCK IT THE FUCK OFF ALREADY, as it relates to life and work…particularly work. The past few months have benn stressful beyond anything I’ve ever been under…and I’ve been on many a death march (the phrase IT people use to complete a job within time frames set by doofus executives who don’t have a clue what they’re talking about). So some re-evaluation is in order….and what a great job market to be contemplating that!!!!
Settle down…not time to rant…must de-stresss
