In brief: Yourself

If one has had chickenpox the virus never leaves your body.
It stays dormant inside nerve near the spinal cord. A certain trigger wakes them up and they manifest as shingles.

In brief: It's all about you!

It's in you as long as you have had chickenpox.
One day it wakes up and pain starts with or before the rash.
