Did you know that if you had chicken pox as a kid, it can come back to haunt you as an adult in the form of shingles? Shingles is rare for my age group. It is also extremely painful because it affects your nerves. Like, imagine feeling simultaneously numb to the touch, yet having pain that alternates between burning, needle pricking and aggressive stabbing. And because of where it’s affected me, it’s also affecting my spine. The doctor said that it was very likely triggered by work stress. I believe it, considering what’s been happening the last couple of weeks. So take it from me: don’t stress.
