I had viral M in February 2016 and it destroyed my life. I had to leave the job I lived for in a great country and return to the UK as I was unable to recover with the heavy work load. I have spent now over a year getting a lot of rest and taking things, in my opinion, easy, but there are lingering symptoms that I just cant shake and I feel unable to function as a human anymore. Its really getting me down.
I am trying to study to change field but I cant follow simple instructions, even the beginning instructions on the website have me in frustrated tears. I get overwhelmed easily, I am always tired and with a minor headache. I am sooooo forgetful that I shock myself with how insane it can be (sometimes I forget how to drive or something as simple as getting dressed) but its not consistent so I never know when its going to hit and its tiring me out so much to not b able to live life as a 33 year old should. I dont go out, I am too exhausted to do anything and spend a lot of time with headaches so I live just hiding away. I become irritable very fast for small things.
Its been over 2 years but all doctors tell me to do is wait it out as it can take many years to fully recover. Not sure how much more I have left in me.
