Just wanted to update. 7 months since I got mono? (Click my username for my full story lol, it was the most awful experience I have gone through).
Today I am getting better each month. Haven’t had a crash in 2 months. I am back at work (physically and mentally demanding) 3 days a week. On my days off I can do errands clean and cook... life is slowly returning back to normal. Unfortunately, it now seems like my sister caught whatever awful bug I had... and I’m sure it was mono and it wasn’t caught in time. The diagnoses was CFS but here I am getting better month by month and I always felt like that CFS was nonsense because whatever I was going through felt viral.
Hope this post gives some of you hope... it gets better but slowly. I had many down periods which would scare me and send me into a spiral of anxiety and depression. Doctors were useless albeit some of them were sympathetic - others made you feel like you’re nuts. My advice? Rest. There is little else we can do but give it time and our bodies the opportunity to heal. Your body will figure it out.
