| but given the opportunity to share my journey, I couldn't hold back.
LOL, it was really more funny than anything else - I actually just feel bad that you went through that. It sounds absolutely miserable.
I've been fortunate - I really don't get sick often. Can't even remember the last time I had the flu or a bad bug.
I did have mono when I was 25 and had no idea, though. I thought it was just a cold that wouldn't go away. So, I kept going to work, kept going out on the weekends, would have drinks - even played a show with the band I was in at the time.
I felt absolutely fucking awful. No energy. Weak, winded. But I never knew I had mono until I had blood work done after the fact. Yikes.
