Official Grandma

Quick update--

For all that know me IRL they can attest to the fact that I am a self-proclaimed Grandma. I'd rather stay in on a Friday night in my PJ's that pretty much anything else, I go to bed at 9pm on a regular basis and I can't tell you the last time I slept in past 8.

Well now I have taken my Grandma status to a whole other level. Turning 22 must have done a number on me because I have shingles. Yes--the same thing that is most common in people over the age of 60!

I have spent the last week DYING because this is by far the worst thing I have ever had! I have been known to have some crazy illnesses in my day (e.g. ring worm, staff infection, swine flu, etc.) so I know what it's like to be sick. but this my friends is in a league of its own.

I'll spare you the complete details but let's just say I lost about 5lbs in two days from lack of being able to hold ANYTHING down. Not exactly the weight loss plan I was going for..

My sweet parents came and got me late Thursday night because I couldn't take it anymore and I have been camping out at their house ever since. Hoping that not being able to go to the elementary school or class this whole next week will help me get back to my normal self :)



  1. Oh my gosh I am so sorry! My brother had that last year (he was 19) and he was miserable. Hopefully the worst is behind you! Praying you get better quickly!

  2. Oh, Jamie! I hope you feel better soon! That's awful. Praying for your quick recovery!

  3. I've heard shingles is just terrible! So sorry you got it!! Hope you get to feeling better SOON!!! :(

  4. Oh my goodness girl, I pray you feel better SOON!

    I'm so scared of shingles because... I've never had chicken pox :(

  5. Oh my! Feel better soon! Those babies are probably so ready to see you!

  6. I can totally relate to being in bed early, usually it's about 10 for me. A good solid 8 hours or more and I'm a happy camper. I'll be praying that you get better soon!

  7. Oh no that's horrible! I had one night where I was sick like you are describing, so sick I was in the hospital and literally told my mom my goodbye to her because I thought I was dying. But then it was over! I can't imagine being like that for longer than a week! You must be very strong! Good luck getting better!

  8. Shingles are awful, and they spread very easily! Be sure and rest and take your
    anti-virals! Hope you feel better soon!

  9. I will be praying for a "get well SOON" for you! I know shingles are just terrible!!!
