That is good news as your friends wouldn't have wanted their sick child on the flight it would have been horrible for the boy and for them.

Luckily just had the cut-off eyebrow and twitchy brow by the time the wedding came about. Thank God for eyebrow pencil.

Damn, it hurts. Never had so much pain in my life. I was so glad the day they gave me Vicodin. Seriously worshipped that drug.

I had it in both eyes, about 4 years ago, as well as a few other places. Permanently damaged my sight, so I now have to wear quite strong glasses; worst bit is that my sight varies a lot, and while the glasses "work" one minute, the next minute I am squinting. very annoying and not good at all! I have such serious doubts about the ability of my eyes to be stable for a while that they are a big factor in the reason I daren't learn to drive - one minute I can see number plates clearly, the next they are just one big blur.

They are also a reason for my often lousy typing - eyes just go out of focus at will :curse:

Sorry to hear about your eyes, Pollyana.

In doing some research for a friend, I found that shingles is less prevalent in developing countries. The theory is that by being continuously exposed to varicella (the virus that causes chicken pox and later shingles) in children, adults keep their immune systems boosted -- a sort of mini-vaccination -- which suppresses the virus from re-emerging as shingles. If this is true, shingles rates will increase as fewer and fewer children have the disease due to THEM getting vaccinated against it.

Yes heard about this before which is why one of the big pharmaceuticals is bringing out a shingles vaccine Where there's money to be made and all that...

I'd gladly pay them money not to have to go through anything like that again. It is incredibly painful. I remember my nan going through it in her 70s - never thought it would hit in my 30s but it is apparently quite common.

Pollyanna: so sorry to hear about your eyes. I got off lucky, just a bit of scarring, so I'm really sorry it hit you so hard.

Could you put this in really little words for me? Especially, do we want the varicella vaccination yes or no?
