    I finally managed to get my flu injection this week, naughty girl says Dr I have been very busy says I.

    Whilst there I said I heard a talk about Shingles on the radio they were saying how very very painful it can be.I said when I had an attack last year I had a very itchy attack  of shingles not painful how come? the Dr said oh there are several different  sorts of attacks you can get, but you mostly only ever hear about the painful ones and I was lucky he said. I mention this only  in case  you want to tuck this little bit of information away if needed sometime.

    betty glad you’ve had your flu shot.

    the info on Shingles is interesting – I worked for a Naturopath who treated patients with acupuncture needling and had good results 🙂

    Just caught up with this post. You may remember my adult daughter got shingles nearly 2 years ago. She is still seriously ill with it and not getting any better.

    Jennywren-vic I remember you telling us about your daughter being ill with shingles; it surprises me that she is still not fully recovered – I hope that day will come soon 🙂

    Daughter went to her doc on Thursday and he put her back on her old tablets as the ones she was on were making her suicidal amongst other things. Doc says she may get better in 2 months or 2 years they just don’t know. It has turned out that she is my carer and I am hers. Hoping she will feel a bit better on new tabs. She had to give up work because of shingles and luckily could access her super. Who would think all this could happen. I think she got it so bad because she had a very severe case of c.pox at about 2. I would love these anti vaxxers to know what can happen.

    Didi she had acupuncture for a while but it did nothing and at $100 a pop she couldn’t keep that up.
