Sad to know you contracting a painful disease. Hope you get out of it well and soon. You are like a God to me. Showing me the pictures of heaven. Liked the paradise scene(oil painting) best. Wish you good health agin.
i am glad to hear you are feeling better! i know that chicken pox, although a /seemingly/ minor disease, can nevertheless be very difficult and cause much misery. i had it (age 14), my doctor said it was the worst case he had ever seen (and he was none too young ! - wow. 'twas indeed a bad case, after the high fever/associated delerium went away, luckily all i have left are scars. hopefully not brain damage ;D /smiles/
so very glad to hear you are feeling better. in general it seems that the older a person is when infected with varicella, the worse is his suffering, for reasons i do not understand (although would like to!)
also, i think it is a myth that one can strictly only have this disease once. i believe there are some exceptions to this rule, such as when contracts and extremely mild strain of it at a very young age, during which illness/signs/symptoms are extremely minimal; to when, years later, a much older organism may contract a severe case of the disease.
although, i suppose this is a discussion for the infectious disease forumso i wil be quiet now :)
as for being lucky enough to have plane tickets to Mumbai or elsewhere on the subcontinent, it looks now that I shall not be so fortunate until at *least* next year. so far away....
this august, i must travel to Seoul; after that, i shall endeavor to fly to "Incredible India," as those ubuiquitous English commercials say. Am very much looking forward to it! I'll be in New York before I go to Seoul, and then next January maybe in Hong Kong or Singapore and very hopefully Bangkok (LOVE spicy food!) :)
tell me what is new w/ you. you can send me an email also not on this forum if you want but at ketzerischst

. and i hope by the time you get this you're 100% better :)
ps have any more interesting pix?
i am so glad u r feeling better. because when one gets varicella as a child the infection is almost invariable not as severe as one contracts the disease as an adult, that is why my highest sympathies went out to you! usually in the adult the fever is higher, the pox more systemically coat the body's surfaces (such as occuring inside the eyelids, rubbing onto the eyeball; inside the linings of the nostrils and also the throat,which makes swallowing so painful as to cause the patietnt to feel it necessary to spit instead of normally swallow, etc.) So i was really hoping you didn't have such a bad case as may sometimes be found in an adult.
Glad to hear the fever has abated, now it should be a case of making sure the itchy bumps don't drive you to distraction or cause a boil. I hope your family has not caught it from you, but on the bright side, if your children are young, usually they do not have nearly so bad as of a case as we adults do.
cool! glad ur going 2 join in gene 2day. i am so sry to hear you are having varicella pox!!! that is AWFUL!!! i hope you don't have too high fever, that is what makes one feel the worst. and no pox inside the eyelids and ears. they will make a sane person crazy.
i am so surprised you never had them before? did you grow up in India or United states or...? just curious. :) anyway i DO so hope you feel much much better!!!
