  2. Shawn, thanks for following my humble blog. I have to share MY shingles story with you: Several years back (15 or more) I experienced a piercing pain in my left eye. A rash began to appear in the middle of my forehead, and for a while I thought I’d somehow contacted poison ivy (I’m highly allergic to it). The pain in my eye felt like there was a needle or paper clip piercing it. I leaned backward under the kitchen faucet and ran water into my eye hoping to gain relief. Finally, I went to my doctor, who took a quick look and IMMEDIATELY called a local opthamologist. I drove to his office and was taken right in for examination. He confirmed I had shingles and prescribed those powerful (and expensive) antibiotics to take. He also said that had I waited another day or two, my optic nerve would’ve been involved and I could have been either totally blind or have severely limited vision. Thankfully, it all turned out for the good.
    I mention this because you’re the first person I know of who was affected in the same way as I was (the eye). I’m so glad that you’ve weathered the encephalitis (so far), and wish you a full recovery. Chickenpox is the culprit for most shingle cases (a form or herpes).
    Wishing you continued success with your writing career. All best to you and your family!
    –Michael

    I sent you a comment here. It was long and involved and probably said too much. All I will say is how much I understand and that my faith sustains me as well. Blessings to you and your family.
