Both arms are essentially out of commission. I went to my PCP yesterday and apparently I was due for some immunizations so I went ahead and took care of them. One of them, Shingrix, is kicking my ass right now. My left arm is in pain and not good for much of anything right now, and the right one isn’t much better. I didn’t read the side effects before I agreed to this, only doing so after talking to my dad and finding out what he went through. And to make it even more fun, I have to get a booster in a few months.


Thankfully I’m not working at the moment so I can recover from this at the same time as I get over chemo (last dose of that was about a week ago). I figure that the long-term benefits are better than doing without, so I’ll put up with this for a few days. I was hoping to get more done this week, but I’ll put that off a few days until my arms work again...
