ok, i’m not jumping to any conclusions here, but i just noticed i have a slight rash on my chest and i’m really not feeling much better. i wonder if it’s glandular fever?

You may experience symptoms similar to a severe cold, with an extremely sore throat, swollen glands in the neck, fever, lethargy (want to sleep 12-14 hours per day), malaise, & headache. You may feel nauseous. If these symptoms are unresolved after two weeks, you might have glandular fever.

well that all sounds about right. apparently i did have glandular fever many years ago and didn’t know about it! just so used to feeling ‘under the weather’ it didn’t occur to me that i might actually have had something more serious. but it showed up in a blood test long after the fact, and my doctor said that of course it meant i am more vulnerable to future lapses.

my doctor is away until monday and i can’t get in to see any of the other doctors at his practice. it sounds weird but i just don’t have the energy to go and see a brand new doctor and explain it all. so until i can get to see him i’ll keep praying it’s just a low level virus, get lots of sleep, drink lots of water and eat lots of fruit and vegies. doesn’t sound too bad, really…
