  1. I had a couple good days this week, actually feeling content with my journey, good about the path. Then, WHAM! Yesterday was a different story. A couple triggers were touched, like your shingles, confusing and painful. I was bewildered, unprepared. I was able to write about it and reflect; in the past a bottle of wine was the medicine I took nightly. I am glad to have come so far in a year’s time, but like your shingles, those emotional and verbal scars will occasionally give me trouble. I need to remember my lullaby remedy when the painful triggers threaten to ruin another day. The aftermath of yesterday’s ordeal still lingers, but I am feeling better today.

  2. Ouch. I’ve been hearing a lot about shingles lately. Can you get the immunization after you’ve had them. We have a shot for that now but it’s not free and not cheap. I haven’t had it myself.

  3. I can empathize, as I had shingles when I was in the 6th grade. I also related to this post, as it reminded me of what it feels like when the anxiety subtly reappears, as it has this weekend. I like the image of a lullaby to soothe it, rather than railing against it.
