This calamity has nothing to do with my gluten free diet! I’ve developed ‘shingles’, which is caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox in children. Shingles is not contagious, but my office is located in the same hallway as a pre-school, and I am able to afflict the kids with chicken pox. No way am I going to cause a pre-schooler to spend Christmas in bed! So, I am stuck at home. I might as well get some work done. I’ve managed to cut down on the number of pain killers I need so I am now coordinated enough to type.
This shingles calamity has its bright side. If I have to have a chronic health issue, I’m glad its celiac disease. Celiac disease is totally painless IF (and only if) you follow the diet carefully. Right now I wish that ‘shingles’ was that easy.
