Hello again !
I am very glad to join the blog once again. I am feeling very nice to talk to you all here in the virtual world of bloggers of BBC English learning programme. I would like to introduce my self as a blogger of the month of August 2008.
Though, I couldn’t be a regular commentator but I was a regular reader of the blog. Everybody is busy in this world for the survival. Today, I am in office after weekend with fresh mind and adequate rest. Another five days are here to go. My days are as usual, from home to office and office to home. As busy as I wrote in my last blog from 8:30 in the morning to the 5:30 in the evening for the office work.
My parents are here with me for these 15 days. My dad was sick so he came from my home town for treatment. Though it is 12 hours journey, for good treatment everybody has to come to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. Before coming here he had a severe pain around heart. The day he left home he saw some rashes in that area. Since it was around the heart we were worried about the heart problem as he is a patient of Blood pressure for last 20 years. But the case was different; it was Herpes Zoster (medical name) which is also called shingles. I am talking about this illness because anyone can have this kind of disease at any time of his or her age. Its better to know about it because when we treat on time its fine but when the time passes the pain can remain from 3 weeks to a year. Some of you might be aware of it but for some of us it's good to know about. I am telling this because when we went to see doctor, doctor said that it’s little bit late but he prescribed some medicines.
The cause of this disease is the virus which remains in a suppressed way in our body who had chicken pox or small pox in their childhood and it comes out with a greater effect if our immunity system goes downThe pain is severe and the rashes also looks very deadly which comes in only one side but it can appear in any part of our body. I wanted to put some picture but it’s very deadly so please go through internet and look at it. Just type “Herpes Zoster”.
Instead of talking about interesting things I wrote about the disease because I thought that if I had known about it we could have gone to see skin doctor earlier and my father had to suffer less.
I will come up with some interesting pictures and interesting write up in my next blog.
