Yesterday,I was diagnosed with shingles. I was taken off hydrea and put on anti -virus for a week. I am so sick and tired of being in pain that my head is spinning. Noone I know can relate to what I'm going through, I want to be a hermit. I am cranky all the time. I feel so bad for my kids, they don't deserve a sick mom. I cry and cry, it helps for the moment and then life has to resume. I really just want some empathy from my husband. He just doesn't get it.
