    I was just thinking exactly the same thing. I'm 3 1/2 months into this virus, its 7:30pm in the evening and I'm exhausted. i feel like i could sleep for 12 hours tonight. I'm also getting a lot more cold sores.

      i understand the feeling david..all throughout this ive had congestion and a cough and white tongue this virus does weaken the immune system maybe try to take some vitamins and expecially vitamin C if you havnt that can build up the immune system more.. i pray that you start feeling relief from those symptoms

      Hi Katelyn,

      I just wondered how you have been doing this weekend, just wanted to write a wee message to remind you that you will get well again from this dreaded virus. It is so hard to live through feeing awful and fatigued each day, but honestly Katelyn this doesn't last forever - I know for sure it can feel like that at the time when it goes on for weeks and months - with this virus this can be normal but then it is equally normal to make a full recovery and feel much better, eventually this thing burns itself out and your body gets on top of it and kicks it out for good. It's so hard to be patient though, just take it one day and one step at a time, don't look too far ahead and remember that with some time you will get better again - and that's coming from me as someone who went through all the same fears, worries, depression, anxiety that things would never get better, but thanks to God only they did and God is there for and with you through this, hang in there.

      This is the toughest part Katelyn you are in right now, the not knowing and the feeling awful each day and finding it hard to see things getting better....believe me this will pass even though it may not feel like it right now.

      It's hard to stay upbeat and encouraged I know that for sure, but hold tightly to that faith Katelyn - God tells us that after we suffer a little while He will restore us again - we know that this virus is a nasty and awful thing to go through but remember we also know it gets better too after some time.

      Thinking of you and hoping for a settled and better week ahead - message any time.

    Hey Katelyn,

    Oh this kind of feeling and experience can be so common when going through mono, I really want to reassure you of that. I remember going through periods feeling exactly the same, where my body just felt so beaten up and heavy and just felt exhausted and needing to rest so much of the time with different aches and pains.

    It is so hard to go through Katelyn, there are no words to describe how tough and painful it can be to go through this virus I know, but the thing to hold onto is that you will get better and that even though I know it doesn't feel like it at the time, this won't last forever. It's so hard to be patient and to keep optimistic when things go and on with this, so just take it one day at a time and remember with some time your body will get stronger and back to full health - God wants you well and is working on your healing right now, even if the manifestations are not seen fully yet, they will be.

    Thinking of you and hoping for a better period ahead for you - message any time.

    Craig
