I've been abducted by Aliens!

My, my, where have I been?

I have had facial pain since my ablation and thought it was from the air tube or anesthesiology and I even called it "stroke face" and sent pics to my family. And I thought it would wear off by the weekend. However, the pain just kept getting worse, so I finally made an appointment. Turns out that I have Bell's Palsy and Shingles. I am even too young to get the shingles shot, because I asked for it when I got the flu shot because I wanted all bases covered. So I was shocked!

Then I tell my friend that is moving to ATL about it as I am buying her couch and ceiling fan, so I told her that I was coming over tonight to pay her. She replies that I must have Herpes - but the cold sore kind - because it can be caused my inflammation of the nerve controlling the left side of your face, or a side effect of Herpes. Why jump to the Herpes conclusion? Especially knowing that I JUST HAD SURGERY A WEEK AGO. WTF? realy, WTF????

I and sorry for venting here, but I am just so disappointed in her that I want to puke. I don't want to look at her tonight when I give her the money, and I surely don't want to speak with her. I am praying for grace and calm because I have been pretty happy and have been doing well lately. But maybe it's the end of caffeine in my home - we are ALL off caffeine - that is making me so angry, or maybe it's the fact that she seems to want to project her own herpes virus onto me... thinking we all have it. Nope... my gyno told me that I was "as clean as bleach".

Okay, headache has reached the boiling point.

I have been riding my bike every day but Monday for 40 minutes and15 miles every day... trying to build my leg back up. Now I am walking in my boot - even though it's terrible and I really need a platform shoe on the other foot. The off-kilter situation is killing my left hip and right lower back.

I am still reading your messages and thank you for the prayers and good wishes. I have never not blogged in this length of time. I know I'm behind schedule, but I am trying I can promise you!

Everyone take it easy, stay warm and inside if you can, and if the sun shines be sure to sit in the window so you can get that exposure without "exposure". LOL

Praying for PEACE and CALM for myself before I have to see HER at 6pm,

    So sorry to hear you have all these extra heath challenges to deal with :(( (I can't get over the shingles diagnosis and they said you were too young to get the shot but evidently not too young to have it come out on you???)
    About your friend's assumption -90% of people have been exposed to Herpes Simplex Virus 1 which causes cold sores and fever blisters, but some people may never get them, so its a very common thing not related to STD and really shouldn't be offended by it. My sister just about beat on me when I said she had Herpes Simplex Virus when she kept getting cold sores as a kid, but her Dr. confirmed it. She is a real social person, sharing stuff with her friends, so not so hard to pick up something as kids don't wash their hands often. I was a bullied loner so kept to myself and maybe was lucky enough to escape exposure.
    Hoping this is enough health stuff on you and you can get around to healing up!!

    Take care of yourself and try to forgive your friend's ignorance. Sometimes when things make people uncomfortable they say things or think things (out loud, unfortunately) that they might not if they took some time to think. Don't blame you for being upset. There is nothing more disappointing than being let down by friends, especially when you need them the most (like at times of illness!). Hang in there and remember, you have friends who care and are concerned and without judgment! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
