Quoting NonsenseMom:“ Did you know you can et it on your face also ?? That would be pure hell - not that shingles aren't ... [snip!] ... they have recently released a vaccine for Shingles for elderly people only over age 60 can receive it at this time though.”
Jesus, my doc never told me.
Pfft Fuck that, having them on my back and side was bad enough
Shingles are just plain evil. At the moment I have.. 6 days to pack, clean and move 3,000km's away and I am trying soooo hard not to stress out so they don't flare up.
I missed a lot of work because of it because I was a disabled carer and many of my clients had low immune systems so there was no way in hell I could expose them to it.
I wouldn't vaccinate my kids against chicken pox until they are older.. but shingles.. hell yes I would do it tomorrow if I could. The fact that it reoccurs is so scary. I almost break out by me worrying about them breaking out D:
I hate it
