The Question Club
Yeah, so. Over a week ago, I asked TQC about having mono, and what it was like. If you guys remember when I posted that, good work.
I was exhibiting mono-like symptoms, which was my original reasoning for asking. An hour after asking that question, I was on my way to the hospital for an official diagnosis. They officially diagnosed me as having mono. Anyway...
I've been Googling websites on the subject of mononucleosis, so I already know what I need to do in order to get better (pretty easy and straightforward). But, the websites I find don't cover the little things I'm curious about.
I know not to do any saliva-swapping on the lips with anybody else, let anyone drink out of my cup or share utensils while I'm recovering... but I'm wondering, is it okay to give someone a peck on the cheek? What other little things have you found is okay to do while recovering? I want to ask about sex too, but I know I'm going to have to ask my docs about that one in the morning, just to be totally clear on that matter.
I am pretty lucky that I just have a mild case and haven't had any horror cases like some of you guys who replied to my original entry (I really felt for you! Wow!). I already had mono for a number of weeks before I was officially diagnosed last week, so I seem to FINALLY be on the road to recovery now. But, of course, I'm taking it easy and not pushing myself too much, as per my doc's orders. For all I know, I could feel like shit tomorrow. I'm just amazed at what little is out there on what else is okay to do while you're recovering from mono.
Thanks for any input you can provide me, and yes, I will be calling in tomorrow to ask. I'm pissed that my Google-fu failed me. *shakes fist*
