Hi I could really do with some hope right now I was diagnosed with mono and am currently dealing with this living hell for nearly 5 months now and it seems like it wont end.. I have always been healthy was literally about to start my nhs training before being struck down at age 29 the chest pain and other symptoms are unbearable my GP said there isnt much he can do I would say this is the closest to anything sinister I have experienced I really dont know if i can cope having everything I hold dear stolen from me I want my life back so badly ..... how are you all coping could do with tips? thanks

    It does get better. I hope I can give you some hope as I was where you are thinking will I ever feel normal. I really seen a difference at about 7 months. I feel so much better now. I still have a few white places on my throat even after 10 months, but I feel better. Don't give up. Prayers for you!!

    Hi Nathan,

    I suffered from a really bad case of glandular fever in Sept 2018 & I remember feeling the way you've described. I began to feel better after about 7 months & each month after that the tiredness eased more & more. My advice to you is rest, eat foods rich in vitamins, keep hydrated & keep telling yourself you will get better.

    It may not seem like it now but this is temporary & you will recover.

    Best wishes,
