have you had it? tell me about it please
I had it for a year when I was 11 it then developed into M.E. One wouldn't recommend either.
i've heard so many horror stories about people being ill with it for fucking ages. i hope it's possible to just like, get well with no big fuss as well. how was it for you?
it was so unfair, so unfair in fact i bye byed her arse right out of there!
For me I had it for year and then it got worse and I got M.E and I've had that for 14 years. That gets better and worse depending on different factors.
GF though. Just rest as much as you can ( I mean real bed rest ) and eating tons of vitimin rich foods.
Sometimes it can last for a week sometimes 2 years. Just look after yourself and you'll be ok. Avoid booze and fags lol
it was horrible, i was really, really run down for a few weeks, and for a good few months afterwards i'd be really tired after a few pints :(
i had it last year. it was shit. like, reaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly shit. immense pain and discomfort for a week, then a few weeks of fatigue after. the fatigues not as bad as the discomfort though, my tonsils swelled up so i couldnt swallow. you get some nice painkillers out of it though
Take me now
but i don't think i was really hit too badly. the day i went to the doctors who then said i had it i also drove to heathrow to pick up my girlfriend, i was admittedly feeling a bit rough on that drive. he diagonsed me on the 1st of august, i took the whole of august off and lay by beaches and by september i was feeling okish in the evenings, took me to about october until i wasn't feeling tired after 11pm. in conclusion i don't think i had it that bad, the worse thing was the razor like sore throat to start with.
in that it's not been painful. i got diagnosed with strep throat at first and the doctor who gave me that diagnose was like "but you MUST have had a sore throat" and i haven't really. it's just a bit swollen, and looking down it in the mirror is less than pleasant. it's not 100% yet that i have this but i went in today cause i wasn't getting any better and the tests won't be ready til over the weekend. anyway if it is that i don't think i'm hit too badly either (knock wood), after i started penicillin the fever's gone so i don't feel like sleeping all day anymore, i just don't have the energy to actually do anything. i have a nap in the afternoons and then i'll stay up til like 1 or so, no problem.
well i had the sore throat for about a week before i went to the doc and he said yup, epstein virus, pre cursor for glandular fever, my tonsils were swollen as well and highly white. he then gave me anti biotics and after the five day course my sore throat was gone and i dunno afterwards all i felt was a bit tired. its odd indeed . anyway good luck with it.
I love reading symtoms of things in medical dictionaries. SHIT! I'VE GOT LEPROSY!!!!
is the *only* way to get this through infection from someone else? or is it possible to contract it otherwise, from like, being way too cold for way too long etc?
I walked into the bathroom one day and saw him absentmindedly scrubbing away with it.
Turns out he'd been using it for 6 weeks or so, and had glandular fever. A few weeks later I had it too...
knobhead knows better.
Let's do it for science
I was 11 when I got it. I certainly wasn't get any action then.
the person i would be most likely to have got it from, says he's never had it. so i'm just trying to think of other ways i might have caught it
I thought I was dying.
I wouldn't wish what I have on anyone! Not even Bono.
I've been to two doctors and they're both like I think you've got glandular fever. Haven't had a blood test yet. I don't have any of the symptoms apart from swollen glands, a bit of a dodgy throat in the night and swallowing is a bit more difficult.
All i could think was, 'yeah, i enjoy japanese post rock, wasn't really expecting you too?'
Apparently that's a kissing disease these mad posh french/english worry about called mono.
I had the crippling sore throat for a couple of weeks last February and then have been up and down on and off ever since...Every now and then I think I've shaken it off, but then I have a relapse...probalby didn't help that no one diagnosed it for about three months and I haven't taken any time off work to shake it off...
I've pretty much reached a "fuck it I'm just going to live with it" stage now whereby I gave up on my booze ban and nothing's really changed...
It makes you really susceptible to other lurgies as well though, so watch out for that...
he/she snogged someone with scabs all over his/her face? desperate times man.
she was ginger too. AND A GOTH! he was going through a bad patch.
It was pretty bad. A week of absolutely can't think about anything else intense ear and throat pain (literally hurt to breathe) and then a few months of being really tired, fatigued and under the weather. Definitely affected my coursework performance and so on, looking back retrospectively. You need to actually rest up properly, don't think that as soon as the pain goes away you can go back to boozing and whoring.
but yeah i'm way too tired and exhausted to do any boozing and whoring ;(((
I had a couple of months of feeling generally run down, felt a bit like a mild cold I just couldn't shake. Then it really took hold of me and I was laid up in bed for a couple of weeks, not really able to move, let alone swallow. The doctor gave me some strong painkillers, but the pills were massive so half the time I couldn't get them down.
I looked down my throat one day, expecting to see white speckles like when I'd had tonsilitis. Instead, it was just this disgusting white coating all over it.
Some people get virtually no symptoms from it, so it could still be from who you thought you caught it off and he just doesn't realise.
Been illing for a week now. Sorest throat, chestiest cough, achiest head.
All pink. All good.
I spoke to the girl I'd been kissing and she's never had it. She does have a cold though. I'm probably too old to get it anyway.
Hope it doesn't fuck you over too hard anyway, caucasian. Keep warm. Keep well.
because everything in my throat is swollen i now snore like a monster and i keep waking myself up because i can feel the gurgling in my throat. NICE.
and had glandular fever a few times. I was kissing lots of girls as I was young and naive. Enjoyed it.
But glandular fever is fucking horrid. Agony. My throat was gone and I couldn't get out of bed.
