So I got mono a couple of months ago. Doc warned me that the tiredness could linger for many months and that for the next six months, my immune system would be crappy - I would catch everything and it would linger.

OMG! I came down with a cold or a bug or somthing this freaking weak. I'm super tired and have a sore throat and just feel - blech. So I'm forgoing gym again (driving me nuts! I did no gym for almost 2 months with mono, just got back in my groove, back out again). Sleeping a lot. Downing Tylenol every 6 hours. I keep waking up in the middle of the night because I feel crummy.

Just having a pity party. I just have to give thsi time and I"ll get over it... but it sucks.

I know how hard it is to work/teach when you feel crummy. Our kids need us to be "Up" and it's hard to be "Up" when you feel so down!

Hope you feel better very soon.

Thanks guys. I just needed to whine.

It's not even like I'm deathly ill. It's just this lingering bad cold feeling and I'm going on day 4 of it. Normally this would last a day or two.

Bleh

I've had this too, for the past year, originally from pneumonia. It really does suck. Every time I thought I was over it I would 'crash' again.

Something I have been taking is amino acids for fatigue. I am better but whether they helped I don't know. I can now exercise but I don't overdo it.

Was so desperate I tried acupuncture. The first time I got instant energy, the second not so much.

You have every right to whine. That blah, lingering garbagy feeling is not fun. I hope you get a good night's rest and feel a lot better tomorrow.

((hurtbs)) I went through this when I first started working at a college years ago. I had a really good doctor that preached building up your immune system through diet when you get mono. A compromised immune system is frequently how you catch it in the first place - for me it was during a bad allergic reaction, then getting exposed to mono at work. Anyhoo, look into foods with lots of antioxidants (brightly colored fruits and veggies) and other immune boosters like yogurt and oatmeal.

Thanks kernal. I actually eat really healthy - drink a lot of water, lots of fresh whole fruit and veggies, lean proteins, good fats.

What I really suck at is just resting and taking a break. I know that's what I need to do.

Oh, that has to be awful. Last time I was "sick" was back in 2006. I had a fever, chills, and achy muscles. Lasted three days! I barely made it through that! If I get sick now (fever, achy muscles) it starts around late afternoon and I'm fine the next day. Happens about twice a year, and I'm not a very health-wise person. I couldn't imagine feeling fatigued like that for so long. Hope you feel 100% soon!

Sorry you are feeling so crummy....
Perhaps you need to add some vitamins to your daily regime to help boost your body....I take a multivitamin, Vit C, Vit D daily and have found it really makes a difference for me....I don't (touch wood) come down with every cold that is going around, heal up quickly if I cut myself, and have healthy looking hair and skin....
I'm 54 and have been taking vitamins for many years, along with a healthy diet high in fruits/veggies....works well for me...may be worth a try for you.....HUGS
Feel better soon....

((hurtsb)) Sounds like taking it easy is what is needed. When I had mono, the doc ended up threatening to send a letter to my work telling them I could not work at all if I didn't drop down to half time and go home and go to bed every day. I had three kids at home and we were living paycheck to paycheck at the time. He was right though. If I had just taken a full week or ten days to get better I would have been better off. Instead I was sick for 4 months because I kept trying to do it all. I ended up missing a lot more than 2 weeks of work, all in all. Can you take a couple days to just rest and spoil yourself?

@kernel - That's my plan this weekend. It's lame because I wanted to spend some time with friends and mostly - hit the gym.
Really, with the stress of moving, breaking up with BF (b/c of mov), and starting new job not being able to work out is driving me nuts!
However, I slept in this morning until 9 and plan to lounge about my place for the weekend. Just resting.
