    I started University last September and about a week after freshers ended I got really bad tonsillitis to the point where I couldn't drink water and I was crying with the pain. About a week after I finished my antibiotics for tonsillitis I got a chest infection. Following more antibiotics I was then fine for a few months and thought everything was okay.

    It wasn't until late December/early January that I started to feel extreme tiredness from everything I did. It started getting worse, meaning that whenever I had quite an active day I was completely exhausted the next day and had to stay in bed. It got to the point where even going to lectures meant that I was exhausted when I came home and with studying two languages I get work set after every lecture, however I was too tired to do it.

    The tiredness is still really bad and after many trips to the doctors I have only just found out that I have glandular fever, which explains all the tiredness I've been experiencing for the past 4 months. As it is exam season it seems to be getting worse, I'm not sure if stress is making it worse or if the tiredness is still just really bad.

    It has been 7 months since I had the infection yet my tiredness is still just as bad, if not getting worse. How long has everyone else's tiredness lasted? Because I am getting fed up of being so exhausted all the time and my flatmates are calling me unsociable for being in my room and in bed most of the time instead of going out and socialising with them.

    Awww I hope you're feeling more energetic soon! I know what it feels like to be tired all the time I've been like that in the past but it hasn't been as bad.
