Yes, I read it all and decided against doctors orders to steer clear. The
last time I had one I caught something totally different, A urine infection
and a skin infection. I suggested to her that while the immune system was
busy fighting something that was not there, it missed the bleedin obvious
stuff out there. She said it does not work like that, well, Maybe I am an
alien hen, as that is exactly how it seemed to work for me!
Also, interestingly, a growing number of friends on mine of similar age have
been going down with a mild form of Shingles. The first bit is tiredness,
then intense irritation then the nasty Chicken pox like lesions on one part
of the body. it seems that as we never had the chicken pox vaccine and had
it as kinds we are several times more likely to succumb to it as it never
goes away, and while immunity is either busy elsewhere or depleted due to
stress it makes it way up the nerves it hides in and bursts out.It can be
very painful. I'm keeping everything crossed that I'm not getting it!
No sign of the itching as yet, so its probably just a run of the mill virus.
