Out of it

Today, I was recently diagnosed with mononucleosis. This means that I'm really tired. I had been planning a trip with my sister and my cousin, but I didn’t wake up this morning at 7 because of the Mono, and they didn’t bother to wake me up. They went without me, to all my favorite places, leaving me at home with nothing to do. FML

"The virus that causes mono is transmitted through saliva, so you can get it through kissing, but you can also be exposed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing a glass or food utensils with someone who has mono."

If you have mono, it wouldn’t have mattered if they did wake you up. I had mono and was so sick with a 103 fever and couldn’t move except to crawl to my bathroom for two weeks.

You need rest and to avoid physical activities with mono or you risk rupturing your spleen. Also you could infect the others so staying home is really what’s better for you.

That does suck and being disappointed is valid, HOWEVER mono is highly contagious and I got in when I was 15 and am 28 how
And never recovered. I’ve been exhausted since with chronic fatigue syndrome... it is likely the cause of an autoimmune inflammatory response that has been calcifying the lymph nodes in my chest by my lungs over a period of years. And ontop of it when I got histoplasmosis in my lungs in 2016 I began coughing up pieces of calcification that look like little bone fragments, and recently started coughing them up again after going 4 years without, And I also was diagnosed with afib at 25 which is possibly due to the sleep apnea caused by my lung issues.

.... mono is highly contagious stay home and rest and don’t give it to anyone 🥺 my best friend in high school knew she might have mono and didn’t tell me til after we had both been drinking out of a soda and I have life long repercussions. I don’t think I’m ever going to reach old age...
