I was very surprised to find out that i have mono a few days ago. And then testing positive for it last night made it even more real. At the age of 21 i thought i had made it past the stage of getting mono. Alas i was mistaken. I've been sick since the 8th of august. In that time i have probably lost 5-10 pounds. Food makes me sick. The sight, smell, and texture of it. My throat has been on fire for about a week now. It hurts to swallow anything. My tonsils are about 3x their normal size. I have looked in the mirror and questioned the possibility of me removing them manually. Luckily for me my wonderful girlfriend said that was absolutely ridiculous. Fevers come and go. highest i had was about two weeks ago at 102.7 F. I can't sleep because of my throat. The doctor said i have puss on them. Looks more like flim to me. It's produced so fast that i can't get it all out before there is even more. I vomited for the first time since my 21st birthday (back in December) this morning. I woke up around 6am to a mouth full of repulsive saliva and flim. After getting rid of all i could get, i went to the fridge and drank some cranberry juice. That was a mistake. It came back up not 10 seconds later. I'm producing about 3x the amount of saliva i normally do. So it's a constant trip to the trash or sink to try and get rid of it before i have to swallow. I really can't believe there is no cure of this horrible disease. I'm going nuts with being this sick. I have never been sick for this long. If fact, i never get sick. I keep trying to tell myself that it's almost over. But every time i swallow or try to eat i am reminded that it's not over yet.
