11. I can. It happened to me last year. Early July, to be exact.
I spent the July 4th holiday in bed, taking my doc's prescription.

I recovered from the worst of it just in time to be at my niece's wedding.

The thing is, though, I talked about it with co-workers, and they gave me nothing but sympathy. It's not contagious, unless there's bare skin-to-skin contact at that area, and that's HIGHLY UNLIKELY.

Get home, if you can and TAKE YOUR MEDICINE.

(If you want, PM me, but I won't be answering until tomorrow AM. Gotta go now)
