Hi.  I am new to forums as well as this hideous diagnosis of having EBV and CMV at the same time. 
My story...
Went to bed on a Sunday night, mid September, and couldn't wake back up.  I was cold to the bones and felt fluish.  Wednesday morning, after my husband had picked up the slack (taking care of our 5 children) for two straight days, he told me I had to go to the dr.  I got in Wednesday afternoon.  They had to bring me a blanket because I was crying due to having the chills!  I was sent for blood work after the throat thing said that I was negative for strep.
A day or two later, the nurse practitioner calls and tells me that I have a double whammy with both of these viruses being active and to take it easy.
This crap has ruined my life!!  I had to leave college, can barely take care of my children and house, and could end up in divorce court if I don't feel better soon!  I have tried and tried and tried!  I go back to the Dr. on Monday and need any and all advice on what to ask/tell her.
Do I need additional tests for other viruses?  I have no idea what all of the numbers are that I keep seeing posted because I wasn't given any.  Do I need to pay attention to those?  What else?  Medications? Anti-Depressants?  Sleep Aids?  I am really suffering from insomnia and anxiety!
Thanks for any all help

Dear Fostermama,

It has been 2 years since you posted. I am dealing with CMV, EBV, 2 candida types, and 1 other chronic fungus. I am trying to figure out "where do I go from here," just as you were doing in your post above. How have you been since 2 years back and what have you experienced in your quest for wellness?
