I didn't know about Linda (Hope you're better Sweetie!) I missed lots of stuff when my 'puter was down. I'm hoping that the anti-viral will help. My FIL had a really bad case and I don't want any part of that!!! It seems to be worse in that afternoon and evening???
A report that I read said that a study indicated that since the Chicken Pox vaccine has been around, that more adults were reporting cases of Shingles. Apparently, exposure to kids w/ the pox keeps antibodies in place. When we are not exposed to them, we don't build our immunity. THat would explin why older folks get them - they're not around small kids as often.
