It is crazy, I had mono when I was 16, I remember not being able to get up off of the sofa, I would use the powder room (in the den all on the same floor) and that would make me so exhausted, I had to lay back down and sleep for several hours. All I remember doing is sleeping.
Then I got Lyme, had to have IV antibiotics for it, and I also have Fibro. So I am always tired anyway, then last year I ended up in the hospital feeling terrible and so tired, they told me I had mono. Then about a month ago I went to the doctor, he told me I had the flu, but guess what? The symptoms never really went away, and then all of the sudden my throat was killing me, I though I had strep throat, then another doctor from the same practice told me I had mono again. I then took my son, 2 days ago to the ER, he had a high temp, they did blood tests and sure enough, he has mono again (he had it in Sept when school started). I just don't think it ever seems to leave us. Right now as I type, I feel almost like I'm looped up on something, and I woke up at 12PM. I've been up for 2.5 hours, put a load of laundry in and guess what? I am already needing a nap. It's pretty frustrating. I am not working right now, but I'm filling out apps like crazy. My unemployment is done next week. It's sad because I have a few days here and there where I actually feel good, but then bam....the whole cycle starts again. Anyway, I don't know if I am venting or what, I know that others go thru this too.
