hi! I have to say I'm so relieved to have found this forum. I was diagnosed with mono 2 days ago. On Saturday I developed flu-like symptoms. Chills, headache, fever. Then the fever reached 102.8 and kept staying. I normally beat illness quickly, so I was concerned by day 3. I went to a local urgent care and they said it was just a virus and to go home. I got into my car and just sobbed because I knew something else was wrong.
I'm a stay at home mom and I have been trying to take care of a two year old and an infant. Once my family doctor saw me, he ordered a blood panel and declared me mono-y. My parents took the two year old ans my four month old who I am nursing is with me.
The night sweats started day 3. any advice for dealing with those?
thank you all for your honesty. The anxiety and emotional aspect of this have been easily the most shocking to me. It has been really hard to cope with going from being the only one who cooks/cleans/etc to having to call in family to do it all.
