I'm sick, again. Ugh. Light headed, body aches, fever. And I have a final and am suppose to be viewing an apartment tomorrow morning. I'm going to cancel the viewing, and will try to study a bit tonight, and hope I feel better in the morning and can study a bit more. Final isn't until 2pm, so hopefully I can get a bit done then.

I also have a paper to write. It's not due till Friday, and I meant to start it last Saturday, but I started feeling sick and haven't worked on it much. I'm about half way done, but I wanted it to be done by tomorrow so I could officially start my (10 days only, booo) summer break then.

I have a really sore throat, blocked nose and headache. I haven't been really sick for years and had forgotten how crepe it is! Most annoying thing is I was fine this morning, but by this evening when I was due to go out with the local vegan meetup I was too ill to go out and have fun.

I thought my bronchitis went away, but after a week without medications and it's back. I've been coughing non-stop since April (with a few reprieves while I was on meds). It sucks and it's interfering with life. If I don't get better in a few days I'll call my doctor, the next step is going to a lung specialist.

I think I have mono. I've been dragggggging for well over a week. I've had exhausted days before in my life, but never exhausted WEEKS. I had the sore throat (that I thought was strep but the urgent care dr said it wasn't) the right space of time before the exhaustion hit... is it worth calling my dr over this? is there anything they can really do for it besides confirm you have it?

I had 3 months straight of successive sinus infections and junk and now this. Ugh. Feels like I'll spend the rest of my life sick.

There's not much they can "do" for Mono but I do recommend seeing your doctor. My husband has chronic mono and it can come on very quickly. You can get dehydrated or reach clinical exhaustion quickly and really need to take it easy, so confirming that it is mono is not a bad idea if you suddenly turn for the worse or need justification for time off work or something like that.

Good to know. I just called my dr. office so I'm hoping to hear back from a nurse soon to find out how to proceed.

I hope you feel better soon! If you're coming up on two weeks hopefully it's on its way out (I think 2 weeks is average) but make sure you're taking it easy!

Thanks! My dr put in an order for bloodwork so I can at least confirm that's what it is or not. So I'll drag myself to the lab today for that. I pretty much was in bed all day yesterday.

Woke up with yet another cold this morning. That's the third one in the last six months. I am fed up.

Well guess what, I don't have mono and my request to have a more thorough thyroid check was poopooed because I *just* had my thyroid checked (tsh only). Sigh. Second time in 2 years that they've refused to humour me on that one.

I dunno, this is dumb. They said I could be checked for anaemia. No thanks. Been there a buncha times over the course of my life. I am not anaemic.

me, too. It's not that bad, but I have a minor sore throat and felt weak all day. I get sick too much. I was just sick over memorial day weekend.
I just have a minor cold, but it was enough that I felt weak and lightheaded at work and my throat is scratchy. I just tried to hide out in my office today and stay away from patients.

Well I'm happy you don't have mono and am glad it was officially ruled out but this sucks.

Well further development: two of my best friends were convinced I'm dealing with depression again, but I wasn't convinced so I was thinking it over and going to call my therapist from last your and get his opinion. i do whatever he tells me bc he is very wise and very disinclined to recommend meds when not necessary. and then out of the blue my therapist called and more or less ordered me back on the meds based on two emails I sent him recently where he apparently detected indicators that I was in fact sinking back down.

I'm so disappointed and upset that I wasn't cured the first time around. I know this is not uncommon at all and some people are never "cured". but it still stings. I feel very broken and have kinda succumbed to the depression I was denying. (don't worry, I will not bog down the thread with this, but I did want to just close off that we figured out what it was.)

I have a cold and I don't like it. For the past two days it was a sore throat, odd-feeling ears and occasional runny nose and/or sneezing. (Well, apart from feeling exhausted but I'd been feeling like that for a couple of weeks so I don't know if that's related.) I was miserable enough but could take painkillers.
Then last night the pain in my throat changed to an itchiness and I couldn't sleep because I kept coughing until I thought I would retch. Gargled with mouthwash; drank lots of water; drank loads of strong, hot lemon and sugar drink; sucked cough sweets. Sometimes this would make the itchiness fade enough that I'd get to sleep for an hour or two but then I'd wake up coughing. Tried sleeping in an armchair so I was more upright but that didn't work. Eventually did get to sleep for a decent amount of time but now it's the next day and my throat is still itchy and I'm grumpy and can't be bothered doing things I need to do.

Also I want to eat loads of junk food and puddings and hot chocolate and I have none of these things in the house.
And I treated myself to chocolate Booja-Booja ice cream yesterday (which I've had before and liked) and it didn't even taste very good. Stupid cold.

I have a cold! It's not that big a deal, but I was finally getting to a place where I'm finishing off the big work projects that have been taking over my life, and getting some other things dealt with that have been taking up a lot of my time the past few weeks, and now I get sick. I guess I know that's how it usually goes, and I'm sure I'll be fine in 2 days, but ugh.

I think I might be a total baby because I rarely get sick, but I feel awful. Sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue. I can't wait to be better!

Man, me too! I usually get sick once a year, but this is the second time this summer! I'm still sick, too, after starting to feel bad on Monday. I've had a fever, sore throat, aches and pains, and massive stuffed up/snotty nose situation. I just want to ride my biiiiike. :(

Hope you feel better soon, moooo.
