So don't worry!
And yes it usually is a month, mine was, but on the bright side, my friend's lasted just a bit over 2 weeks.
You could be the same way
And all this worrying? It's stressful, stress makes you more sick!
Try to keep calm, take VERY good care of yourself, and enjoy the time off school while you wear your PJs all day and every takes care of you
Thanks. That REALLY stinks for you.
You're right, I want my friends to be everything but sick. Unfortuantly, this is what happened today, and it was just awful:
I went to school at ten, because they told me I could sleep in the mourning, and when I came to school, (with makeup to look less pale) I was told I needed a docter's note. I didn't know that!
But alas, mom was gone on errands, and I had to wait in the office for THREE HOURS! Doing nothing at that...
I was so scared, not to mention bored...plus the secratary kept mocking me.
Mom finally got a docter to fax a note to the school. It must have been a different docter that didn't know anything. He said I could go to school, on time everyday, and that I didn't even have MONO! GAH! I'm so angry and confused. I was advised to stay home for a month, and I have all the symtoms.....
I'm so hurt and confused. Plus Orei stayed by my bedside all day, and he only does that when I'm sick. What's going on?
