I've got shingles!

Just above my belly button on the right side of my body, across my back and ends just before my spine. Felt some itchiness since Monday and I thought it was bed bugs. As I arrived home, mum rushed me to the clinic the moment I showed her my rashes. Well, the good news is at least our bed doesn't have any bugs.

Apart from the itching sensation on my body and the slightly uncomfortable turbulent flight back to Malaysia, it's good to be home. Caught up with high school friends and would be visiting relatives later.

Ian and Reita, thanks for the wishes. Yes it is getting better. Been taking my pills and applying cream. I'm actually not having any severe pains, so I guess mine isn't too bad. Wishing your mum a speedy recovery, Reita.

Jonie: Is it? I was told otherwise by the doctor though. If that's the case, my relatives won't be too happy!

Julie: Yup pretty itchy but getting better now. Dad, mum and uncle was running. Sis unfortunately, tried to run but with plantar fascitis had to walk the 2nd half.
