I do =(
It started as a regular cold, stuffy nose, headache, sore throat, etc. Then the next day, I noticed that the tops of my feet were hella itchy, like i had a rash or somethin. I was in bed all day, with a long sleeve shirt and pants on. I had to go to class to drop off my papers in the evening, and I had rolled my sleeves up and saw that this rash was all over my forearms. upon further inspection, I found that it was EVERYWHERE except for my neck, face, and junk. I showed my arms to my gf's mom, and she said i should make an appt. with the dr. for today to get it checked out, as it could be scarlet fever or somethin. so i call to make an appt., but instead get transfered to the advice line, where I tell a nurse all of my symptoms. she puts me on hold for like 5 minutes, then comes back and tells me to go to the ER! i ask her what for, and she said it could be some kind of strep infection, and they had to rule out meningitis ;0
So i go to the ER, wait for about 3 hours, then finally see a dr. he takes a blood sample and swabs my throat (it was really red, and painful for me to swallow any kind of food or drink.) he said the rash and fever stuff could be mono, and my throat could be strep throat. so i wait another 1 1/2 hr in the room, and he pops his head in and says "we haven't forgotten about you, it'll be just a little bit longer." then i hear in the hall someone say "mono test positive." turns out i have infectious mononucleosis :( it's a viral infection, so there isn't much to do for it other than stay in bed and stuff, basically like the flu, except i have this itchy rash everywhere. so i get to miss work for 2 days as well as my friday morning class, and sit at home itchy and feelin like ****. this sucks!

I thought mono was when you get really tired and cant do anything for long without sitting/laying down.

And i hate when people say "sucks for you". If it sucks so much that you make a thread on PBF about it (given that your not a spam whore) then how blatently obvious is it that you are already aware that it sucks? Everytime someone says that to me i just want to say "Thanks for the update, Cheif!" and give them a thumbs up, all in the most sarcastic way possible.

What the hell do you want them to say? "Ahh man, your lucky!" or how about this one "For your misfortune, I will Paypal you $500"

You sir, are an idiot.

Sucks you have mono, least you get out of work and school...

I would be fine with that*hint hint*

And I, sir, am and idiot because i dont like when people put salt in an open wound (Not to be taken literally all you "special" people) and say stuff that doesnt help and sometimes make the situation worse? If what your saying is useless, dont post it. Thats what im saying.

PS: If you lack the mental capacity to understand this, use PMs, dont clutter his thread.

PPS: Im not going to reply to anything else in this thread that you say. I could hold a conversation with an idiot all day long, but i dont think PBF wants to see it. PM me if you can figure out how.

How did you get it? Mono is transmitted by fluids. You either drank after someone, or you've been a boy. ;) Or maybe someone with it sneezed on you.
