Hi guys, just posting an update. it has been one year since i became terribly sick with what doctors had no idea what it was, but if left me bedbound for months and i literally thought i was dying. click my name and scroll fhrough my many posts for the horrific details of my symptoms and hospitalizations and why i think its mono.
anyways. i started improving about 6 months in and very gradually came back to work. i am now back at work full time, socialize, shop, go for long walks. trust me, when i was 6 months in i was still so weak and breathless and i had feelings of depression and despair that if i wouldnt get better since it was so long with being so sick. so if youre going through this please read my story and relax and believe that you will be ok too might just take a few months. and since this thing is so
horrific i think many of us have a new appreciation for health and will want to come back and share your recovery to help others who felt the way you did.
rest whenever possible. meditate to calm your adrenal system (i know it sounds wishy washy but visualizing my body healing made me feel in control and calmer). avoid stress, i find that even to this day emotional stress makes my symptoms flare up here and there. i also went to accupuncture and a naturopath. not sure if this helped in my recovery but it got me out of the house and at least i felt like i had some hope and control.
take care of yourselves and thanks to the many kind people on this forum that were a great source of support !
