I’m Gettin’ Real Tired of This

I’m pretty sure I have mono. Again. As in, I’ve already had it. Twice. When I had it last time, I had to Google whether it was even possible to get it again. It is. It’s not super common to get it a third time, but it happens. Just my luck that I get repeats on illnesses that most people develop an immunity to after the first go ’round. Do I get a prize for this? I mean, other than feeling fucking terrible.
The first time I had it, I was so sick I could barely get out of bed for two weeks. My girlfriend took me to the hospital when my fever spiked to 104 and I hallucinated a pretty involved conversation with ‘a very tall person’ (apparently. I don’t really remember much after passing out in the hallway). I also lost my voice for a week and when I could finally talk again, I sounded like a cartoon. Seriously. I wish I had a recording because it was fucking ridiculous.
Luckily, I was able to stay home yesterday and let the entire day disappear into one giant nap. Totally worth it. And today, when I get home, I plan to devour a pile of banana popsicles because they can make anyone feel better, no matter how terrible that person feels.
