Katy finds that keeping herself involved in activities that distract her from pain is the best way to get beyond it. We have been working on our computers and getting ourselves organized for most of the day. Most people who have had shingles don’t usually talk about it unless the subject comes up. Several people who have found out that Katy has it for a second time have said they had it once and hope they never have to deal with it again. The pain is very difficult to manage, but by God’s grace she is!
Today we have been thinking about getting into an exercise program at the Athletic Club or YMCA. Katy’s doctor suggested that last week as a way to improve her bone density. Since I would be her driver and would have to wait for her while she exercised, I was thinking about joining her. I once saw a cartoon about a girl who needed an exercise routine and in her private thoughts she said, “I feel like exercising and getting my body in the best shape it’s ever been in… I think I’ll just sit here with my feet up until the feeling passes.” We’d like to go a step further tomorrow and actually call about classes.Comments:
