    Hey guys.
    I have Glandular Fever, or for Americans 'Mono'. It's so annoying, having to miss lectures, can't go out and drink, can't go to the gym, can't get any. Apparently this bitch can last for months as well. Anyone else on here had Glandular Fever and want to share their experiences?

    Oh my this was called "The Kissing Disease" when I was in school. I think everyone I knew at one point or another had it.
    Take your meds and rest and repent!

    You don't get any meds, it's not curable. You just have to ride it out. And I didn't kiss anyone around the time when I caught it, I have no Idea how I caught it - must have caught it a while ago and the symptoms lay dormant for a long time :(

    I had it when I was 18 after having burned the candle at both ends. Luckily for me, it only lasted a month. Unluckily for me I stubbornly refused to learn my lesson and contracted Hepatitis B six months later: that lasted six months and, at one point, got down to 125 lbs. It was brutal.

    mea culpa! Upon reflection I remember that I had it in addition to strep throat and I got meds for that. Anyway feel better and take it easy.
