so i have:
yea, shingles, and not the kind pictured above. what am I? A 75 year old man? ugh!! apparently these can be caused by stress. the doctor asked if i was under a lot of stress and i simply replied "i'm in law school," he laughed knowingly.
plus I have a 25 page paper (not including footnotes), upper level writing requirement due tomorrow. so yea, life pretty much sucks right now!
