Only Could Happen to Me

I wouldnít think anyone could have as bad of luck as I do. Today I learned that my dad has shingles (I live with him) and guess what??I donít think I have ever had chicken pox or the vaccine for it!! (shingles is chicken pox recurring later in life) So now Im really anxious and cant do a damn thing about it. I could barely handle my anxiety and panic before this. I just started taking lexapro for anxiety seven days ago but I donít think it has kicked in yet either. Ill just have to wait seven to fourteen days to see if Ill get the chicken pox. Life isnít fair.

Re: Only Could Happen to Me

chicken pox isn't that bad. your poor dad has got the worst deal by having shingles. it was super-painful when i had it! i shouldn't worry too much - chicken pox is a walk in the park compared with shingles and there's no saying you will definitely catch it

Re: Only Could Happen to Me

When my Mom lived with us and she developed Shingles.
I had never had Chicken Pox either...I was around her every single day and I didn't get Shingles or Chicken Pox.
I wouldn't worry to much, but if you are concerned you should discuss it with your Doctor.

Re: Only Could Happen to Me

Thanks for letting me vent. That shingles stuff is horrible looking. There is just too much bad stuff out there and if you worry about it all the time youll drive yourself nuts. Seeing my dad suffer like this only makes my anxiety seem a lot less important. Well thanks for the support everyone You guys put things in perspective for me.

It may be worrying to you now, but I reaaly feel for your poor Dad. Anxiety and stress make you weak to germs etc, so hang in there, chances are you will be fine.Life could always be worse. Hang in there!
