I have been ill for the last nine months with Glandular Fever. Originally, I was told I would recover within six months, and foolishly I continued working fulltime even after my diagnosis. Eventually, I lost my job, and thus my dream of being a graphic designer, due to my illness. Since my diagnosis, my health has deteriorated rather than improved. I live with chronic fatigue, chronic pain, headaches, muscular pain, swollen glands, and sore throat. I am in constant pain. In my efforts to find answers as to why I have failed to recover, I discovered in my online searching that there is a strong link between Glandular Fever and CFS/ME. In light of what I've read, it seems very likely that the virus has led to me developing a chronic illness. My GP is currently refusing to entertain a rediagnosis, and inisists that my primary diagnosis is still Glandular Fever / Post Viral Fatigue. I'm tired of not being taken seriously by medical professionals. I feel completely alone, and that nobody believes how ill I am. This whole situation has left me with suicidal thoughts on a daily basis. I can't continue living like this, with no answers and no medical support.
