Now I'm just sitting in front of my computer itching. I'll be getting the shingles vax for sure...
Tell me it ain't so...MY hero is a druggie! I used LOVE a grape jelly & peanut butter sammich w/a bowl of milk (for dunking)!That's how mine looked and right where it was across my back and stomach on my right side. No pain meds....but I found out that it's 100% true that you can't OD on THC gummies. You can get to the point where you can't form a sentence, but there is no pain, it's just existing, really hungry, for about 7 days.
No it qualifies as an addiction!Is waterfowl hunting considered a "transmittable disease"?

I had shingles last fall. I thought I had poison ivy on my head from being in the woods. At first it started at the hairline on my neck as a little pimple like bump that sorta itched. Eventually, I ended up with lumps the size of grapes up the left side and on top of my head, behind my ear, and on my neck. I put Calamine lotion and/or Benadryl cream on it for a few days and that took the sting out of it, but it did nothing for the pain. They seeped like a mofo....gross as Hell, and they burned like a galldamn hot wand was being put on my head.
I swear to God that it felt like someone was using a 1/4" drill bit into my brain where every one of those bumps was on my head. And it rotated from one bump to another. I finally went to the doctor and he said.."uh, yeah...that's shingles man..." He offered me a script for Oxy but I declined. I took 800mg Ibuprofen every 8 hours for about a week.
The headaches from that crap were debilitating. If I didn't stay on the IB, I would get to where I couldn't keep my eyes open. Eventually the bumps scabbed over (nasty, black looking scabs) and fell off. I also had a patch at the base of my neck in front. Everywhere I had it, I am now scarred. Thank God it didn't get into my eyes or in my ears or on my face.
I've taken one shot so far, get the next one in April. Bruised up bad and hurt worse than all 3 COVID shots I took, but I don't want that crap again. Like others....at times I'll get the "itchy crawly" feeling under my scars. It'll never go away fully I am told.
An acquaintance had his physical and the doc had his light and asked him to follow the light using his eyes only. He could not follow the light up. Turned out to be a tumor deep inside his brain. He was gone in under a year.Friend of ours took their kids to annual eye doctor visit during covid. The two daughters went in while mom had to stay in the car. Doctor came out to get her during the exam. They had found a brain tumor.
We booked ASAP and continue to have annual exams for OUR kids (perfect vision) as a result. Our health insurance covers it. No reason not to once I learned all the stuff an optometrist can detect.
Lots of talk about shingles here. I had blisters on my back and my wife took a pic and I went to web MD or some other site and knew I had melanoma. (I've been in the sun way too often without protection). The old country doc, now retired, corrected my grim self-diagnosis with "you've got shingles"! Music to my ears.Nope . Two shots
Good luck with the shingles. I spent a week wearing silk long johns. Get the vaccine or them sobs can come back.
