So, I’m still here at my sister’s, dealing with the physical and emotional task of packing the car and heading back to California. Not sure when that’s gonna happen, there is not a job or a permanent place to live out there yet.
But the timetable has been moved back a couple weeks because I started to get pain in my right hand that traveled up to my elbow then up to my shoulder blades. At first I thought it was carpal tunnel, then maybe a pinched nerve, then I started to get a rash and blisters.
Yeah. Some of you are way ahead of me. At the doctor’s office they told me what it was right away. Not zombie hands, shingles.
Sorry that the above pictures aren’t very good, they are the best I could do with my cell phone. And it got more purple after I took that one. Holy crapsicles though. Ugly right? They seriously were zombie hands.
Painful as hell too, which is why I haven’t been on here or Twitter and Facebook much. As you can see it affected my right hand and wrist so writing and playing on the computer for any period of time was not happening. Admittedly I have a low pain threshold too. I’ve never broken a bone, pulled a muscle, or given birth so I’m a big weenie when it comes to pain…but I’m pretty sure that this is the worst pain that has been experienced by anyone ever.
But, a truckload of Acyclovir and Hydrocodone later the zombiness and pain are started to diminish and I may survive. I’ll keep you posted.
