I am fairly certain I am not sick anymore -- I haven't had a fever in days, and I don't have any symptoms except an on-going lack of appetite.

But almost every day, around two or three o'clock, I get overwhelmingly tired.  I lie down to rest for a minute, and literally cannot stay awake. I fall sleep and sleep for three or four hours.

Today I fell asleep at three-thirty and woke up at 8:00.


On the other hand, our yard is filled with fireflies this evening.

That's a lot of extra sleep. I hope you fully recover soon!

Me, too!

I have several hours every morning when I'm fine, but then, wow.

IF your body wants to sleep let it sleep. Clearly what you are doing now. This is all good for recovery and avoiding future trouble. Listen to your body because i need you to fully recover and keep writing. Thank you.

Aw, thank you!

Do you think you may have had mono? In some people, the intensely sick part lasts only a week or two, but the recovery is long.

Hmm! Maybe? I didn't have the sore throat or a rash, or swollen lymph nodes.

I did have extreme fatigue, though -- still do. I slept 11 hours last night.

I don't know where I would have gotten it, though. I haven't been doing any of this:

"EBV is the most common cause of infectious mononucleosis, but other viruses can cause this disease. Typically, these viruses spread most commonly through bodily fluids, especially saliva. However, these viruses can also spread through blood and semen during sexual contact, blood transfusions, and organ transplantations."
