Just to explain...

When a Shingle is single
There’s an unpleasant tingle
But as it increases
Pain cuts you to pieces
The vile rash is conducive
To becoming reclusive
All this being said...
I’m staying in bed!

My apologies to all for my lack of presence here. I haven't written, replied or visited for simply ages!
I had a bad flare up of my Fibromyalgia and now am battling with an attack of shingles.
I hope to be back in the land of the living soon...


  1. Oh, poor you. Shingles is not nice at all ... my mum had it a couple of years ago and really suffered. My son also had it a year or so ago, aged only 9, but luckily it was very mild although he still has scars around his middle. Hope you get better very soon.

    1. Thank you, I'm sure the sunshine is helping. Your poor little boy- I hate to think of a child in pain like this. Jane xx

  2. Sorry to hear you are poorly Jane, I hope you are feeling better soon.

  3. Oh Jane - ouch! Shingles is awful - get well very soon.


  4. Oh my! I have heard Shingles are so painful. Take care.

  5. Oh, Jane, this sounds awful! I hope you're getting good care and that you will soon be back to normal. God bless you, Diane

  6. I like your poetry therapy...get well soon. Eco Ethel xx

  7. Dear Jane,

    I hope you get well, soon! I have never had shingles, but I know it's painful!
    I am at my new house in Italy, where it's hot, sunny and the sky is always blue.

    I know it's warm in England, but... I'm sending you a bit of sunshine, as I know that in England it never lasts!



  8. Oh Jane, you poor poor thing! I have recently been in contact with a couple of people with Fybro Myalgia, and it's a most awful thing without having shingles on top. You are so brave and lovely to entertain us with witty poetry. I do wish you a speedy recovery, and hope you have someone to pamper you. With all my love, Linda xx

  9. Thank you all my lovely friends- I'm enjoying the sunshine in the garden and I'm sure I'll be better soon-
    Your lovely comments have cheered me up alot!

  10. Two horrible things to have - hope you feel much better very soon but sitting enjoying the weather and being looked after will do you good. I had shingles a few years ago and it hurt like hell so sending you support from sunny Sussex. Karen xx

  11. Hi Jane,
    I hope that you are now feeling better. Rest, water and a good diet prescribed! The sunshine is another factor. Enjoy your family and the sun.


  12. So sorry to read about wretched Shingles - it is a most painful condition so I wish you a speedy recovery. Did you write the poem? How lovely (if that is ok to say in the circumstance)
    Best wishes

  13. Thinking of you tonight, Jane. Hope you're beating those two awful things. You have a friend in Wyoming. Sending love and prayers, Diane

  14. Thanks again for all your loving, supportive comments.
    I have to admit that the poem is indeed mine. It always cheers me up to play with words!
    Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Jane xxx
