I've been ill since New Year, where I was bedridden for two weeks. Since that, I've been catching every cold and virus going and have been extremely fatigued. There have been short breaks in between without illness.
I hadn't gone to the doctor, and just carried on as normal working on a stable yard doing manual labour and then running and going to the gym in my spare time. I knew something was wrong because I lost all of my fitness for no apparent reason; running more than 5 minutes seemed like hard work!
Finally, I was diagnosed at the end of July with Glandular Fever. I went away to Africa for a month (A trip that has been planned for over a year) and unfortunately became very ill in my last week. Now that I'm home, I have been signed off work and am finally giving my body a chance to rest.
What should I be doing to aid recovery? Is there anything to avoid?
Considerng that I've had this so long, I just want rid of it now. It affects absolutely everything that I do and it's really getting me down.
I'm not used to sitting at home not doing anything and the prospect of no exercise really scares and upsets me because I thrive in having an active lifestyle.
Has anyone else suffered for this long? It would be nice to hear from other people going through the same thing!
