I hate having Shingles!!

Saturday, February 21, 2009

Well it has been 9.5 weeks & I still have Shingles! I am getting quite discouraged since I still have pain & it gets much worse when I do any kind of exercise. I have not been to TaeKwonDo since before Christmas, I miss it & I am definitely showing the effects of no exercise. I've gained weight & I just feel overall crappy. I have been tempted to just stay away from Spark since I am certainly not keeping up with the program, but I need to feel connected with everyone here so I at least can stay motivated to get back to it when I feel better. I'm grateful for all who have said prayers for me & who keep me going.

    I hope the shingles are gone by now. My mom had them and I had a client that had to deal with them as well. It was pretty bad.
At least you stayed with spark and kept motivated. Even if not used for weightloss this is such a great space to come and meet people, get that conection!

    I feel for you girl! I had them when I was pregnant with my oldest. I still have scars. It is hard to explain the pain to someone who has had them when all they see is a rash. Not to mention the stress that usually brings them on. I know when I had them it was definitely stress related. I hope yours go away soon.
