So it's been 7 months since I was diagnosed with mono in March this year. Sadly, it might take a lot of time for me to fully recover, apparently. July and August have been far worse than expected. My lymph nodes on my neck and armpit hurt for a few seconds, they're a bit swollen especially the left side and tender to touch. I've been having nausea and chest tightness, also new symptoms now in August: a burning sensation on my hands and feet and also sneezing a lot like allergy or something. The general malaise and fatigue are still there, not letting me eat what I want, and I've lost weight too. It's just like flu, but much worse. All I have to do, is just sit and watch how things will turn out for me. So far, not liking my mono symptoms. I thought after 6 months, I'd get better gradually, but no. The virus persists to cause me symptoms. It's an awful desperate feeling of wanting to get better. Don't think crying and worrying about my health has helped though. I'm trying my best to stay calm, rest and be patient.
