Chicken pox at 43 years old and just two weeks before Chinese New Year. Just my luck. Well, I guess it is better to get infected now than around or during our wedding banquet. I have been running a fever since Monday. My last temperature was 38.3C 30 minutes ago. I busted two of the blisters on my right cheek not knowing what they were initially. The lesions are not healing yet and are hurting now. The other symptoms are abdominal pain, flatulance, eyes feeling like they are on fire, a heavy head and general sense of unease.
