I had a filling replaced earlier this week and it was a real bad experiece. Normally I don't have too much trouble with these things but this time something was quite wrong. I ended up have 6 shots of novacaine all together. Long story anyway, now I have Shingles and I think I want to die.My husband just brouhgt me home from the Dr. I didn't dare try to drive. I have had this before but not for a number of years. Dr. said it is that large nerve that runs down the jaw. My tonsels are black looking and I am swollen inside my mouth and the whole side of my face,and everything. Plus of course then there is the rash or lesions to put up with. This is a nightmare. So here I set a wonderful sunny afternoon in April miserable as hell and look even worse. My Children were going to celebrate my birthday today. My one and only precous Granddaughter, I call her Miss Taylor was going to take me to a Alice in Wonderland play this afternoon. She has had the tickets since last Sept.Then her Mom and Dad were going to have dinner and cake for me. The Dr. insisted that for the sake of the Grandchildren that I beg off.Not that I feel very great to be doing anything anyway, but for Miss Taylor I would have puhed and tried to get though it.I guess your not supposed to be around small children, old people or sick people when you have Shingles. Besides my Grandson he's 3 I call him Master Jared, he had pink eye this week in one eye and my daughter had it 2 days later in both eyes, so Dr said he woul probably see me in a couple of days for that. I am so sorry to whine and be so long winded. I feel so guilty for I know there are so many people out there suffering and so much worse off. At least I had the money to go to the Dr. and to the drug store.I am just so let down for this is just one more thing I didn't get to do and one more person I had to disappoint because of this body I am stuck in. Now the tears are leaking and I am just such a mess. I am grateful for somewhere to go to let it all out even if no one cares to read my post . It can just float around out there somewhere, doesn't matter. Hopefully I will improve and feel better in a few days. Going to lay back down now. sorry to get so emotional.
