I'm really at my wits end. I don't know how a 30 year old gets mono. I really don't. I think I'm dying. I have no idea how I would have gotten "the kissing disease." but I went to the dr. today and he thinks it's what I have. I thought it was strep, but the strep test is negative. He said if it continues for ANOTHER WEEK, to come back and get tested - but I honestly don't think I'm going to make it that long. Our new neighbor made us homemade chocolates and soup when we moved in here - and she believed she had mono during that time. No - my boyfriend wouldn't have been kissing her - we've been attached at the hip for the past month. And if it wasn't her, I was talking to a nice old lady at the supermarket about her cat....when all of a sudden she launched a spit glob onto my lip just at the same time that I was licking it! My throat is on fire and I want to rip it out of my neck. When I swallow, it feels like there are marbles covered in crushed glass in my throat. This is worse than when I had my tonsils removed in my mid 20's. I've had fevers for the past three days - topping off at 101.5. I can't sleep properly....I can't function. I'm exhausted and I've barely eaten anything. If anyone has any advice.... please let me know!! I want to go back to the Dr. tomorrow to be tested, but I'll have to wait another day due to scheduling with the dbf's work. I don't trust my ability to drive myself at the moment. It came on so suddenly on Sunday - I've never had something like this.
