Which Shingle?

      |   Shingles | Shingle Photos | Humor |

  I started writing this for humor, but I have had a very mild case of the shingles and I would like to show you that the shingles can be a very serious condition. Bottom photo is graphic, but I feel that younger people need to know about this and to take precaution. The older we get, the more likely a person will get it.

What is the shingles? It is the dormant virus which caused the Chicken Pox which comes out through the nerves at a later date.

  One of the most beneficial things we can receive from IBO is learning how to write. One of the things I discovered, is that we get into bad habits and not giving a full description (words) to give a complete (picture) to the other person. (Poor Guy).

   A man walked into a doctor's office, and the receptionist asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said. So she took down his name, address and medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

   After a wait of about fifteen minutes, he started walking down the hall and a nurse's aide came almost running after him and asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said!.

   She took him into an examination room proceeded to gather more information for the records. Then she took down his height, weight and complete medical history and told him to wait in the examining room.

   A half-hour later a nurse came in and asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said. So she gave him a blood test, a blood pressure test and an electrocardiogram. Then she told him to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

   An hour later the doctor came in and said, "what is it that you have?" "Shingles," he said.

   The doctor said, "Where?"
