If Barbara had never had chicken pox, then she can't have shingles. That's how it has been described to me. The shingles is the chicken pox reappearing in a different form. If it were the shingles, then why not announce that? I miss the point of why they would cover it up with chicken pox which is so similar.
I had chicken pox at age 15 and it was HORRIBLE. I was sick as a dog and had the WORST case of pox ever. I had them in my mouth, ears, and everywhere you can imagine. It's one of the worse 3 things that ever happened to me. Poor Barbara. I feel for her.
