Wow...

I didn't realize how much of a toll Mono would take on me. It's now been a week since I started feeling symptoms and I'm still unable to function normally. I did work yesterday, but I think I survived on pure adrenaline. By 1:00 or so, I was shaky and sweaty and ready to get out of there.

I thought I was strong enough to go to Walmart for some groceries last night. Big mistake. I was ready to pass out within minutes so Erik took me home. I crashed in my bed around 9 last night while he went back to get the things we needed. Then today I slept until...get this...noon. I have never done that!

This upcoming week is spring break, so I should be able to get all the rest I need. I hope I feel more like myself by the time I go back to work. Now, I think I'll go take a nap...

Was I not clear enough?? STAY DOWN!!! Getting up to eat something is going to be your big time outing!! I was ecstatic to ride in the car to the store and just sit there while my mom went in and bought my groceries!! And I was exhausted when we got home.. Just stay in bed.. that's the only time you'll feel halfway good.. after a week or so, you'll start to get restless, and you can start getting up. DON'T do too much too soon.. but answer my email!LOL
love ya,
Jean

The doctor told you what? 6-8 weeks, did he/she not? You are over doing it!!!! You need to rest and take it easy or you are going to be in worse shape! Don't make us gang up on your butt and kick it okay?
