    TB is very rare but i had a friend who experienced it first hand, she was off college for a while and had to take antibiotics for a year after. TB is a big knock to the body and fatigue is common afterwards. TB takes 4 weeks on average to correctly diagnose so if you think you may have it try keep away from vulnerable people with weakened immune systems or babies. Its like with any disease it will effect everyone differently.

    The disease isn't what I expected it to be,definitely sucks the life out of you on most days
