So do you have CMV (cytomeglovirus) or EBV (Epstein Barr Virus)? Both of my kids have had CMV lately ( i have diagnosed them
myself but as im a med tech by trade I guess i more than likely to be right!)lol
90% of the population has been exposed to it and is not a concern unless you have pregant women in their 1st and last trimester (and even then you are pretty darn unlucky to a. get it and b. pass anything onto your child (which CAN cause problems)


I guess at least you finally have an answer although even that suxs that it has to run its course and there is no quick fix
Very gorgeous card and yes lovely pix of you on the tarisota gallery
feel better soon


Im so glad you have an answer!!! and some promising treatment, we are big homeopathic users (are you suprised LOL)

Jos card is just gorgeous!!

CMV was blamed for my spleen rupturing but I'm in the minority group who got more than cold like symptoms. Look after yourself T!!!!


Yeah take care of yourself..... i had glandular fever and it hits you like a ton of bricks.... I can feel it come back now and then... so have to be sooooo careful..... rest up we need you well for SENZ... looking forward to it...

heck if it is CMV then no wonder you have been whacked, it aint nice. yaaay for homeopathy!
Take time to get better Trina, I just wish I lived closer to help out. {{hugs}}


Sounds like CMV to me - sorry to hear this. I hope you are feeling better soon - take care and TRY to rest, okay?!

I hope it comes right real soon and that it doesn't turn into Chronic Fatique Syndrome as that is what I had at the end of my 3 months working at a summer camp and omg did it wipe it out of me!


Wow - lots of work in that card!

Hope you can kick this virus' butt.

I must be going out in sympathy for you over here Trina as I've been bed ridden all week myself. The only good part is that I've lost 4 kilo's in just a matter of days. Not the best way to lose it though! Hope you're feeling 100% soon.
