I'm sorry I am so behind times here, but I just read your post. I know the pain of shingles and have outbreaks every so often. After my stroke several years ago I started breaking out with shingles around my chest. For me, stress plays a big role in my outbreaks. I've added you to my prayer list and so has my wife, Becca. She is a sweet Christian lady as are you, and I think you two would hit it off well, judging by what I know of you from here on faithwriters. May God bless you in all that you do.
Hope you are all better by now, but we will be praying for you anyway.
The best of God's abundance to you,
