    You poor thing! I had glandular about 7 years ago - it was horrible. I remember I was living alone, and had my sister come stay because I literally couldn't pull a blanket over myself. Even now I have to hold one arm with another while blow drying hair or straightening, never got the strength back. Just rest as much as you can - if you can get any family members to help, be it make meals, help with laundry etc do it! Every little bit of rest you can get will help! Mine reoccured last pregnancy, mildly, and I'm pretty sure has resulted in Chronic Fatigue, as I've never felt the same since, partly because I was working full time for a good while without knowing I had it, until I collapsed one night while out at dinner, was diagnosed after a BT the next day. xx

    I had GF recently just before I got pregnant. The only way you are going to recover is rest unfortunately. Do what you can to enlist some help from others. I sucked on ice to help my throat and ate lots of ice cream :-) It took a good 4 weeks for me to feel some what normal again. But even now, if I do too much I start getting fatigued and a sore throat. Its such a crappy virus to get :-/
