    Anyone else feeling tired, stressed and ill at the end of this long term? Drudgery of UCAS is making me ill with worry and all I want to do is curl up in a ball and go to sleep; not revise for ten million modules in January to get me my grades to go to uni!
    Familiar anyone?

    I'm sure they do. Teachers really do have a hard job of expressing true feelings. I dated one once. Honestly got scared that she was going to grade me on perfomance in the sack.

    Glandular fever is nasty. i have got rid of the actual glandular fever I think but whilst I had it I had a sickness bug and my asthma got worse and now my immunity is so low i am waiting to go back to the doctors I have really bad ulcered tonsils think it might be tonsillitis and I have conjunctivitis in one eye.

    So I hope you havent got it, fingers crossed it will just be stress.
    Stress can make you ill, when i finished my A Levels my last exam was chemistry and they had to sit me at the back of the hall so I could keep going out to be sick and when I finished the exams I was in bed for about 3 weeks.

    I hope its not glandular fever! I've been feeling so dreadful lately as well, its complete madness! I even caught a flu virus which had me missing vital A-level lessons, and i'm still feeling the effects a week later - i'm making myself ill again trying to get all the work sorted and revise - its just not happening! Why are A-levels such *****es?!?!?!?

    yeah i'm hoping it's not... they're going to do the tests, but they have to wait 2 weeks before they're allowed to... for now i just have to stay in bed *all i've done since monday is sleep and it's driving me mad* she said that i could well be that and things like my asthma going worse, and getting dermatitis on my arm and leg suggest my immunity's rubbish. arghhhh.... i'm hoping it's jus a random virus that will go away before christmas.

    when did you get it and how long did all your symptoms last?

    I got it at the start of term I think. I got tested about 6 weeks ago took about 2 weeks to get my results back.
    At the start of term I had a cold sore throat headache etc it didnt go away so i went to the doctor.She thought it was just my asthma giving me a bad chest so I just had a bigger dose of asthma medicine, but anyway it still didnt go away so I kept going back to the doctors got bloodtest and its glandular fever or a virus thats got the same symptoms as glandular fever.
    It really varies on how long you are ill for some people are just ill for a few weeks but you can expect the tiredness to last for quite a while. For some people the tiredness symptoms can last for up to a year apparently. This link might help.

    My friend had it in year 12 and she is now 24 she says she still gets relapses of the tiredness when she is stressed.

    Hey, yeah i know what your feeling. I've been obsessed with getting offers from uni and really happy when I have done, feeling like the hard work is all over and I can finally go to uni. Really though, the hard but is to come, I actually have to GET the grades not just be predicted them which Is going to be the hardest part of the application process so far. I think i've been concentrating too much on getting offers from unis and not enough on getting the grades to actually meet the offers (although I guess I need to have some offers to try to meet if you get me).
    I'm kind of glad that I haven't had any unconditional offers or I would have lost the motivation to work as much by now- which is probably why unis only give them to exceptional highly motivated people! ~(which is definatly not me)~
