I know there was a post awhile back on shingles, tried to do a search but unable to find it. Wanted to get some input from some of you who have been through it. My reason for posting is this, if you have not had a shingles vaccine, by all means have one. I am in my 4th week of this horrific, extremely painful disease and not even sure when it will end. I thought about the vaccine when I read all of your posts but said to myself, nah, it won't happen like everything else. Am I ever sorry. All I can say to all of you out there, if you have not had it, do some serious thinking because I would not wish this on my worst enemy!
