    Hello @Simpson sorry to hear you have shingles on top of everything else. It does seem to be mounting up but you are among friends here so. Hopefully it helps to write it down and perhaps others can give you some (more helpful) advice.

    Keep strong

    Hi @Simpson

    I am so sorry you are suffering so much. I know how painful shingles is. My friend who had cancer and also caught shingles that was what was the most painful for her. Unbelievable pain.

    I wish I had an answer but think maybe if I was you I'd be ringing the helpline here. They are just lovely people I have rung them up twice in the past and just cried for ages, but gosh it did help just speaking to someone who cared.

    Take care
