Epstein Barr is chronic mono, and is related to Chronic Fatigue. You go through a long and tiring bout of mono, but you never get back to your old self again. For the rest of your life, you get tired easily and get sick easily if you don't get enough rest. My doctor told me that I would never be able to hold a 40 hour a week job and he was right. I get sick too fast. Thank goodness for modeling, I can work part time and make full time money. I used to tend bar for the same reason. There IS a test for E.B. but I don't know what they are looking for. I do know your white blood cell count goes way up. There is no cure, either.
