Do I Need New Friends?
After two agonizing weeks with shingles, today is a bit better.
I still feel like crap though and my skin looks like it was burnt. My face is hideous; at least the part affected by shingles is. My left eye is blurry and I have that itchy, sensitive feeling on my scalp. The Ophthalmologist checked my eye on Friday, and he said everything looks great. I have to see him again in a week. I didn't know shingles can be so dangerous especially when it affects the eye. Thank God for early diagnosis and timely intervention of the anti-viral drugs, it could have been worse. I'm pissed because having shingles will postpone my May vaccinations.
Winter, icy conditions and sickness can really reel in the blues. I've been feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Lately, I've been contemplating about the lack thereof or having too few friends in the area. I know I have many childhood and high school friends (you know who you are), but almost all of them live abroad.
Is it really harder to make friends when you're older? Or have I simply stopped making the effort to make friends?
