It's official - I'm sick.

I woke up this morning and my throat felt even worse. So, I decided it was time to see a doctor. The verdict? I have mono. How great is that? So, basically, there's nothing I can do except rest, drink lots of fluids and take all kinds of over the counter stuff I picked up: vitamins, echinacea, lysine, Tylenol and Halls. I'm contagious, so I have no idea if anyone will even want to play games with me. Supposedly, as long as I'm not ejecting spit onto people, I shouldn't be contagious. So, no sharing drinks/food or kissing. Good thing I didn't have any designs on anyone while I was here!!

Hmmm. Mono, eh? Did you doctor tell you that you must have caught it from someone else? I just curious. Because if you caught it from someone else, then they caught it from someone else, too, right?

Yep. I could've caught it from someone who doesn't even know they have it. I have a new guy I've been kissing, but other than that, I'm pretty liberal about sharing food and drink, so I could've gotten it from anyone. Someone I know could be a carrier!!

Thankfully, it only lasts 2-4 weeks and I'm pretty sure I had it for a week before I even got here. I was SO tired the week before I left.
