Hope you were able to have a nice rest after all the work!!
Because the shingles pain was not going away (I think it's probably now the dreaded post-herpetic neuralgia) the doctor put me on some anti-depressant tablets - not for depression, they use them to treat shingles too. They are gradually working and the pain is getting less and less. The trouble is they almost knock me out and I feel like a zombie, just want to sleep all the time:(
