    I just got back from urgent care & the pharmacy. I have shingles once again in the same area that gave me the meningitis & encephalitis 2 years ago.

    My eye is once again involved - I'm pretty scared. That is how the virus hit my brain - almost lost my sight in that eye. I also don't want to lose the gains I've made over the last 2 years.

    I'm being hit hard with anti viral medications but my neuro doctor will let me know in the next 24 hours if I need to be hospitalized & given IV anti-virals. If the involvement around my left eye continues at this rate I will be admitted to the hospital.

    Just looking for a good thought, beads rattled, those chicken thingy dances, - even a prayer might help.

    Ugh. Once you've had shingles, the virus never actually goes away. It just hides until something knocks down your immune system enough for it to flare up.

    I am sending healing light in your direction.

    Linda you are immediately in my prayers. I am believing this will not turn into anything more than just a temporary flare up. Hang tough, it is going to be OK this time. We are praying for you.

    How are you feeling this morning?
