I had shingles in 1999 in the middle of wedding preparations. It was so painful I couldn't wear underwear. The GP said I had come too late to help - mostly because it was the weekend and I couldn't get an appointment for 3 days after that.
It was at that point I changed GP.
i was very ill with measles when I was 3 but I don't remember much about it other than anxious hoverings. My dad was sent to the fever hospital when he caught scarlet fever at 5. he was there for 7 months because he caught diptheria whil he was there.
We lived with my maternal grandparents until 1947 when we got a council house. I remeber the day we moved in because my aunt took me off to a local beauty spot with a picnic to keep me occupied until the furniture was in. I ate cherries for the first time.
