The verdict is in.........

It's official....
Confirmed....
The truth be known....
The cold hard facts......

The Black Plague that has taken over my body for the last 5 weeks was in fact....

SHINGLES

Argh!

And the Evil Sugar luvin Critter Disease

WELL.........

THAT was just "A BONUS"
Oh yea that makes it so much better!

And as far as bonuses!

I would get THAT kinda bonus...hahaha

BOTH of which (by the way) were diagnosed by my dear friend Tammy nearly 3 weeks ago which cost me nothing....Nada....Zero.....Ziltch unlike the visit yesterday to my ever so costly specialist sporting those fancy smancy dermatologic letters after her name.

I will say in what is certainly a very rare moment...my dermatologist took leave of her senses and took pity on my sorry self giving me a discount on her "5 minute diagnosis" reducing my 100.00 visit to 60.00!

Please don't misconstrue that as being unappreciative. I am truly very thankful to have saved 40.00 however, at the same time I'm still sporting that "head scratch" position as to "WHY" I needed a dermatologist to confirm our suspicions when my dear friend Tammy had already given me this "free diagnosis" and "WHY" said "5 minute diagnosis" costs so much and an even "BIGGER WHY" as to "WHY" this was not caught in the first 3 days when that lovely Acyclovir could have made these last "5 very long nightmarish weeks" so much more bearable ???

Hmmmmm?

I suppose its just a series of unfortunate events that her fancy smancy letters just don't hold enough weight to confirm such diagnosis in the eyes of those with fancier smancier letters after their names....

You know like "MD".....

Oh well I believed you Tammy and once again I'm hearing that ever so familiar phrase coming from you lips also followed by my ever so popular inquiry...

ME: "How'd you know that?"

YOU: "Because I know things" :0)

Now if we could only get you some of those fancy smancy letters after your name that would allow you to write scripts THEN we'd be in business!

**Makes note to self to research further as to how to obtain such fancy smancy letters "without" going to fancy smancy letter school and without breaking any laws that could land said guilty parties in one of those fancy (bars on doors and windows hotels)**

**Grins**

For now I'm feeling MUCH better!

I'm faithfully taking my ever so yummy kids chewable vitamins. Probiotics and benadryl have become my new best friends and the derm with the fancy smancy letters after her name has assured me that all scarring/left over blisters/trails of poison ivy like afflictions will in time disappear and as for the "Bonus" I got with my "By one get one Free Black Plague Affliction"

This too is but a memory in the grand scheme of this Evil Shingle Sugar luvin Critter Saga.

Say that 3 times real fast!

Now if we can just keep those evil sugar luvin critters convinced of this fancy smancy letter diagnosis AND convince that evil Shingle Virus that you are NOT supposed to be visited more than once this momma will be one happy camper!!! ;0)

NOTE: I hate to be the bearer of bad news ....

BUT....

Shingles do in fact like to come back and "re-visit" their ever so gracious hosts and they do in fact enjoy visiting BOTH sides not to mention "oddball unchartered territories" contrary to the popular belief of MANY "Fancy Smancy letter wearers" ;0)

On a good note the last 5 weeks have really boosted my weight loss quest pushing me just over the 100 pound mark.

Woo Hoo!

Not the best method for weight loss and I certainly don't recommend it.

We do however recommend our Meals 4 Wheels cookbook and support group.

All cookbooks from round one sales have been shipped and should continue to arrive on your little doorsteps or in most cases can be found in those little boxes mounted on metal or wooden posts outside of most residences. Cookbooks can then be found by opening cute little door on said mounted box. :0)

And in the last famous words of a not so famous Kitts Hill resident......

"I sure hope THAT don't spread"
**Blink Blink**

And for those with inquiring minds......

IT WILL SPREAD :0)

P.S....
Tonight I start my first Foster/Adoptive class. Finally I'm on the road to renewal. Well this is my second attempt! Lets see if things fall into place this time ;)
