4 weeks ago i was taken to hospital with susspected meningitis, i spent the night there whilst they hooked me on to a drip, pumped me with paracetamol and took numerous blood tests, they finally told me i had glandular fever and a swollen liver and spleen. I was advised to take time of work (i have worked for my company for almost 4 years) i had to go back to my doctor every week for more blood tests and to be under watch.
I have been off work for 4 weeks now, with a sick note but am still not feeling very well! i have been told it can take atleast 2 months to recover from glandular fever and shouldn't return until i feel okay again. I also suffer from stress and depression since loosing my baby 2 years ago through complications during my pregnancy and i am finding having glandular fever is making me feel sad and depressed again.
my partner is making me feel guilty about being off from work even though my doctor, manager and my parents all agree i am not in any position to return yet. Has anyone had glandular fever before and how long was you off work for? also how do i deal with my partner making me feel bad? im starting to feel as if im doing the wrong thing by being off work, i just need a bit of support so i don't feel so bad about it all.
any answers will be apprechiated :-)
