hurt so bad that i thought if i wrote on the net it might change my mind about these stupid shingles. i'm swelling up and i really don't know what to do .........i went to the articles that caprice suggested but that didn't really do me any good. i put icy compresses on them once and that didn't help it ony harmed. o well.......... and then my doc said that the lasst pee test i did i didn't have any oxycodone in my system which is bs because i have been taking them as long as she rx's them! so somebody did something with the test or something is happening with my pee. my reg therapist told me to ask my chemical dependent therapist. as god is my witness i'm not lieing about this. it takes 7-10 days to get opiods out of your system. what she think i'm stupid?????
well not actually i've taken so many antihistamines that i'm gettin weirded out. i'm so dry my throat hurts still this afternoon and i think i have pink eye but the docs think how could this be when i'm on infection meds whatcha call those can't think right! like penicillin stuff. another temp quit on me today.............when she came in i told her i might have pink eye and that i would pay her for the day if she needed to go home and she opted to stay now i got a call stating she said i had pink eye and that she wouldn't come back in because she didn't feel comfortable with it! FRICKFRACK ON MY BACK AGAIN! I'M SO SICK OF THIS!
Antibiotics. I've had an infection in one area when on antibiotics for another. They don't always give you broad spectrum antibiotics - just ones specific to the infection you are fighting. I hope things get better for you. How long does shingles take? I hope you can recover quickly. hugs Kate_Te
they say if i'm not better in 4 weeks call. o hell yes! i will be screaming if i survive myself that long. tho my daughter may be going thru a divorce i wanna die so bad right now. after another fiasco with a temp i give up. i don't want to have the office in the home anymore! it does not work! we need to move it out NOW! i'm sick of having to be somebody and something i'm not! i think she heard me scream at a clerk at a store about not being able to buy a gift card over the net! because i didn't have their store card! idiots
