Yes, you can get the shingles, too.

I went to the doctor Sunday because a few days before that, I had started itching and broke out in a rash under my arm and on my back. I thought I might have been bit by an insect of some sort but, the doctoer there said that I have shingles. I thought that only older people could get them. I was aware that shingles are caused by the chicken pox virus but, not knowing that anybody could get them shows how uneducated I was on the subject of shingles. So, I got medicine for it Sunday. I've been taking it ever since. I've had a few problems. Mainly, itching and shooting pain through the are that the rashes are on. From what I've read, I've done fairly well with them. Factors for that possibly include my age, how quickly we caught it and the care I'm doing for it. I've been taking my medicine as I was supposed to and it seems to be clearing up quickly. I know that I'm going to have issues with it for quite sometime. I had chicken pox when I was 5 or 6 years old. So, I've went 20 years without shingles. I'm hoping that I can go another 20 years or, better yet, the rest of my life, without getting them again. I will be finished taking my medicine the day after Christmas. Let's hope that all this clears up before then.

Until Next Time...

Journaling

For the last year or so, I've had a journal. It's a small composition notebook that I try my best to write down thoughts/questions/daily happenings in. There's times when I skip days, even months. Here lately, I've began to journal quite a bit more than I have EVER. I've researched journal topics online to help me. I wanted to start a Goddess Workbook my Leonie Dawson but I haven't got the money to do that right now. So, in order to help myself figure things out, I decided to try to write about a different topic each day or every few days. I'll post my topic here when I can so that ya'll (whoever reads this) can journal yourself. :) I might even post my thoughts/feelings on those topics.

Until Next Time...

A New Home For Hermies

Yesterday, after coming home from my trip to TN, I cleaned out the 20 gallon tank that my brother used to have his snake in and proceeded to set up a new home for my hermit crabs. It's nothing fancy as of right now. They seem to like it. I also brought home 3 new shells for them and Herman, the biggest crab, has already changed shells. I can never get a good shot of them because they truly are hermit crabs. Scooter is the only crab that will come out of his shell regularly. I'm hoping the new crabitat will perk them up and make them a little more lively.
