Re: Shingles vaccine at 22?

I had shingles at 18, Ive tried getting the vaccine and literally got laughed at. Mine was brought on by stress.
You can get it when your immune system is down because of illness, lack of sleep, and of course stress. It wasnt the cut that brought them on it was probably the mental stress you were under. I always worry I'll catch them again because I'll get pains from the area and it makes me panic, which in turn makes it hurt worse.
I'm so glad to read that you no longer SI, I watched many of friends go through that. its a very hard thing to overcome.
