Glandular fever #2

Well got through Christmas and the new year with glandular fever (GF). This included shopping trips and a walk that took over twenty minutes, which sounds not much for me normally but then less than a month ago I was happy to be able to walk five minutes without a break!

The key for fellow GF sufferers is to plan your day and time wisely. If you’re going out make sure you can take a break and/or rest stop. I find I have more energy after a meal or if I have rested up for a couple of hours beforehand. Don’t go overboard on your trips out and have a clear plan of where you are going, where to park and/or catch the bus/train.

GF is unique to each person and having it really makes you listen to your body. I have had GF for over fourteen weeks now and it is case of pushing a little bit more, not too much as GF will kick back at you. Anyone currently with GF (or mono as the Americans call it), take heart as you will gradually start to feel better. It may not be a quick recovery, although some people do bounce back quickly, but recover you will.

Also do keep taking the vitamins, particularly D and B.
