On 11 February 2018 I got what I thought was the flu and then a week later I was diagnosed with glandular fever (Epstein Barr virus) which I had had in my teens quite badly.
But the fatigue and pain never went away.
I’m lucky – I’m still managing to work almost full-time – I have a cleaner to help with my housework, and I manage by staying home. I used to be someone who was out 6 out of 7 nights, exercised 5 times a week, was actually (in retrospect!) super fit, and now I can barely manage one swim a week.
My life has been drastically altered.
