I'm definitely going to change my attitude.
A little over a week ago I came down with shingles--and yes, it hurts as much as you've heard it does! Even as the rash is going way (thank you, anti-viral drugs!) I'm told the pain will last for weeks, at least.
So for the last week I've been in a lot of pain in inconvenient places (it hits me on my right hip, and then around front and back from there) and have been kind of grumpy. I mean, it hurts! And I have to go to work. I can only be negative for so long, though, and I have to revert to my usual relatively upbeat self, pain be damned. I'm tired of being the grumpy old man complaining about his maladies, so as of now I'm going to be more positive. I'll look for positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.
It's not going to make the pain go away but attitude's gotta count for something!
