Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

I'm so sorry. I hope if there is such a thing as a mild case of shingles, it's what you have. I hope you remember the amount of love coming your way from here when you are going through the pain. We love you & wish we could do more to help.

Do take care... Shingles are just horrid. I hope you were given something to help with the pain and that you heal quickly.

I had shingles once. It's not a fun illness. I do hope you get better real soon and that your doc gave you some meds.

Hi BB,

Click here to read a long discussion on handling shingles pain. Get yourself to get to the last page as a member just recently posted how she handles it. Maybe it will help.

The best thing to do is to lay down and rest as much as you can right now. Keep taking the pain pills as the doctor tells you to take them. Hopefully that will help. Hope you feel better soon.
