Not a woodworking question, more a woodworker question .Anyone heard from jay lately ?
Hi Jay! Thanks for the update and I hope they can resolve the PHN quickly for you. I had always known that shingles can be very, very painful but had no idea the damage and long term effects that can linger on. Rest easy, be a compliant patient and know that thoughts are with you for a speedy and full recovery!
Thank you Rita for the well wishes. It is a very nasty and painful thing to get and it does do damage if it gets into the eye. The damage it does is in the nerves and thus upsets and effects the central nervous system.
I am improving slowly but sure but requires that I take a strong pain killer and that also makes wood working unsafe. I am hoping to get off this soon. Thanks again for your good wishes.
Thank you Joan for the nice comments. I am trying to get back as I promised to be back soon to pester everyone. I do miss everyone and being unable to do any woodworking is driving me nuts. I have to limit the amount of time I spend on the computer but I do try and read as much as I can from the community's projects and posts. I am impressed by the number of excellent projects.
Thank You Rick for the nice words of cheer and well wishes. yes mine started from a flu shot as the doctors opinions after the fact was that it lowered my resistance to catching things. If you recall I was super busy before Christmas and that also played a part in my ability to resist everything and that is why I got the flu shot before I caught the flu. It worked on the flu but I got something worse. Thanks again.
So sorry to hear the news Jay -- couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Hate to ruffle a few feathers, but my sister worked with a guy who died from the flu shot. Perfectly healthy, father of four, who HAD to get the shot for work. Unfortunately flu shots, like all drugs, come with side effects. The mainstream media is not reporting these, however, since that would be "irresponsible" journalism.
Jay, I pray you have a speedy and quick recovery.
