My Sister has Mono….she tested positive for Epstein Barr.
Kissing disease?? Young people’s disease?
I don’t think so…she’s 65
She had mono in her 20’s. She has Hasimoto’s, Raynaud’s, and CFS. The doctor explained that the Eptein-Barr virus can just lay dormant in your body and can resurface because of a compromised immune system.
So now what? She is weak and fatigued and can’t do much which is understandable.
She has been taking care of our Mom, and now she can’t. So, I’m trying to take care of both of them. I am conserving whatever energy I have carefully and spreading it out between the two of them. Mom can really take care of yourself to a certain extent, all I have really have been doing is cooking for her and doing the dishes. I went grocery shopping for Mom on Sunday and today for Sis. I hope I don’t crash….stress is my biggest enemy.
So, now what?
She is the one who takes care of everybody.
