So last week I noticed a bump above my eye. It strted hurting and feeling uncomfortable on Wed so on Thursday I went to the doctor. Turned out I have SHINGLES! I’m only 24, why in the.. How on earth did I… But whyyy?!
Friday I went to an ophthalmologist to make sure the virus didn’t reach my eye and luckily it didn’t so there was no damage done to my vision!
I’ve been out of work since Thursday. The itching, burning, stabbing throbs of pain were not fun. Not to mention the ongoing headaches that just wouldn’t go away. My eye was swelling and I felt a total mess. I wouldn’t wish shingles on anyone. Especially close to the eye! Ha.
Sunday the pain & swelling finally started dying down. I began feeling like myself again. Power of prayer is amazing. I was starting to fall into a funk but through Christ, prayer, and medicine I am finally feeling better. This morning I had no pain at all and was able to laugh at myself with these silly pictures. Covering my “boo-boo” up in all of them, ha.
My mom was a huge help/blessing these past few days. Making sure I was comfortable and praying for me. Don’t know what I’d do without her. I may be 24 but when I’m sick, I’m 3 years old alllllll over again. God knew what He was doing making her my mother!
The rash and blisters are still present but slowly getting better. Thank God for doctors, medicine and His healing hands. ❤🙏🙌
