At the risk of oversharing, I'm recovering from a case of shingles.
Yes, shingles — that ugly, painful viral illness that all of us hope we'll never get and that about half of us will end up getting anyway.

Hey, if you're going to have a painful viral disease, you might as well have a disfiguring version while you're at it, right?
I promise I'm not going to get all gross on you. I could, but I won't. You can thank me later.

Resilience, positivity and action trump change — even the really painful kind of change — every time.
Heavy doses of modern medicine don't hurt, either.
