Chicken pox

At the grand old age of 40 I (embarrassingly) caught chicken pox a fortnight ago from DS.
The spots have either all scabbed over or disappeared completely now but I wondered when I would stop felling like I had been run over by a bus? blush
I'm still all tired & achey. I'm back in work today - couldn't stand daytime TV anymore and would be looking at a disciplinary (I still might be) if I took any more time off.
Am I justified in collapsing on the sofa a la Gloria Swanson tonight and letting DH get the tea and put Ds to bed wink

Well I caught it at 32 and I was pretty worn out for about a month. Was left with painful glands once the spots had gone. You just need to be horizontal as much as possible.

Get well soon

Thanks WMMC. Although DH might misinterpret 'horizontal as much as possible' grin
