    I can not believe how much bad luck i am having! Hubby went back to work this morning (he's in the army and has been on easter leave) and they told him that he's got to go away for 2 weeks :hissy:. He had no idea and hasn't even got any stuff with him so that upset me enough as my SPD has been so bad lately he's my lifeline at home. There are lots of things i can't do without him, just silly things like putting the bins out, getting out of the bath/bed, getting upstairs etc.

    To make things worse i was feeling a bit 'off' yesterday but thought it was just stress as i'm not having the best time at work and i'm not sleeping well with my back/hips but when i got up this morning i felt awful and had pains in my side. Within an hour of getting to work i had developed 3 blisters on the left of my tummy button and they were REALLY sore. Called mw who told me to go to GP when i got there i had more blisters and he diagnosed SHINGLES! I can't believe it, i feel so shit and am on my own for 2 weeks. I have to go and have an injection (can't remember what its called but ends in 'oblin') and have been signed off work. I feel so pathetic for moaning and bad for hubby because i'm sure he wants to be at home helping me. I just feel useless and so sorry for myself. :cry:

    My mum and dad are away at the minute as is my next door neighbour so i feel totally isolated. I was kind of hoping i'd need to be admitted to hospital i feel that scared of being alone - thats terrible isn't it? :blush: I don't know what to do. :cry:

    Oh no - so sorry you're having a crappy time. :hugs:
    It really isn't terrible to feel like you need some support with all that going on - maybe you could talk to your midwife and explain how much help you need with every day things and that you have no-one around at the moment. They might be able to get you some help at home, though it might be better not to go into hospital if you can avoid it - all those ill people won't be much fun to be around!
    Do you have a friend who could stay with you for a bit?

    No one who could stay with me, all of my friends who are close enough to do that have babies/children of their own. I'm such a drama queen! =( xx

    Sounds like your having a bit of a crappy time atm. I don't know what i would do without my partner here, i rely on him so much atm.

    I hope the next two weeks fly for you. Take it easy and try get people to help whether its getting the shopping for you or just putting some washing on x

    poor you hun, i'd be flipping out, so don't think you're a drama queen, you're not.
    if you can't do basic things, perhaps tell the doc and they'll look into some help at home for you.
    Hope it all pans out

    Oh hon, shingles is well nasty!

    Perhaps you could tell your midwife that your struggling coping and she could arrange for the Health Visitor to keep an eye on you.

    My MW offered this to me today cos I am having a bit of a hard time. So with you being really poorly, they would make you a priority??
