    Hoping that things can improve soon Gee....once you're through the first six months that is by far the worst phase over and things can improve - it might still take a bit of time but I don't believe you will have to go through another six months like this one - hang in there!!

      Hope that things improve for your Kurt, they still can and it just seems to be for some it takes longer than others - I still had a number of symptoms after 1 year but into the second year things got much better.

      Oh well throughout the virus I had all sorts of symptoms from low grade running fever (ALL the time), sore and swollen glands in my neck and other parts of my body, feeling tired and wiped out all of the time, and just generally not feeling well within myself.

      Things will get better Kurt, they really will - I didn't think I would recover from it but God was merciful and compassionate - your body resilience will come back I truly believe.

      Craig is right. I have been dealing with this virus for 14 months. I have had all the weird symptoms. I had extreme fatigue, puffy eyes, joint pain, insomnia, brain fog, swollen spleen, etc. I was diagnosed with cfs. Craig has always been here with encouraging words. I am starting to see some improvements. Starting to sleep some and vision is starting to get better. This is a terrible virus, but hopefully in time I will fully recover.

      Hi Kurt,

      The tiredness (feeling wiped out a lot), low grade fever and the swollen lymph nodes, especially a reactive gland in my neck, were the symptoms that lasted the longest for me - but they all do go away I really sympathise and sincerely hope you can see some improvement soon.

      I went through a lot. I went through a divorce and got a tick Bourne illness and mono at the same time. I have also worked through most of the illness. My advice is if you don't have to work stay at home! My sickness has lasted longer because I did work. My biggest problem is fatigue and vision issues. Also brain fog. I classify as a cfs case. I am starting to see some improvements though. I feel worse in the mornings. I will have a couple of good days were I will do a lot, but I pay for it for several days afterwards. Rest,time and patience is all we have against this virus.

      It's hard to recall exactly Kurt as it was about 10 years ago, but I remember that it wasn't until about 10 months that I really started to feel some decent progress, and gradually after that period things got better but it still did take some time and I had a long phased return to work but things did come bit by bit.
