That Time My Cat Died, I Got Shingles and Lost My Job . . . . In The Same Week.

They say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, well I must be Super Woman.  

Let me start out by saying that it we spent a wonderful week in Worcester, MA for my birthday with our best friends.  We know this guy that drives this big truck called Grave Digger, maybe you've heard of it?  The show was coming within a few hours of us, so we decided to drive down and make a weekend of it.  You see, this guy, he's married to my best friend Denise and he was bringing her with him :)
Even though I was feeling a little off, I was still up to my usual shenanigans.

I had been having these really strange pains in my left leg.  We had had a pretty intense Body Blast class then Zumba after, so I thought maybe I had pulled a muscle.  Sunday night, I had these bumps break out on my foot.  My first thought, I just spent $150 a night to get freaking bed bugs!!!!  So, I did what any normal person would do, I texted a pic of my foot to anyone who would take a look and went on WebMd to see what kind of disease I had!!!

With bed bugs ruled out, I thought it best I go to the Dr's before my leg fell off.  The pain was getting worse and I was overall just feeling really lousy.

So here I am in the exam room when the Dr says, I just want to have someone else take a look at this.  What? OMG I have a flesh eating disease??!!  In comes in another Dr and a nursing student "because when funny looking rashes come in we all want to look".  Awesome.  After some prodding, they decide its shingles.  Say what?  I am 34!  Am I not too young.  She says, do you have a lot of stress?  Um . . . 
Out the door I go, prescription in hand.

I had already made the appointment to have our kitty put to sleep for later that day.  He was 16 and slowly failing.  It was a hard decision to make, but I felt worse making him suffer just to avoid the heartache.

On Wednesday, I took the day off of work, because you know, we have sick days for things like sickness.  On Thursday morning, my boss let me go.  I had been there twelve years.  On Friday, I spent the whole day crying . . . and the three days after that.
