Now here's a claim to fame l wish l didn't have !
I am most certainly not talking about my sprint ability , oh no !
What l have in common with Mr Cavendish is very regrettable...l am talking about the Epstein -Barr virus .
I was diagnosed five or six years ago but since the initial nightmare of symptoms and quite unpleasant treatment up until now l have been clear of problems.
Regrettably l seem to have begun another bout of the dreaded E-B V. So just wondering if anyone out there has experience of this illness and if so, how's it going for you ?
 
It’s not unlike glandular fever. It’s not pleasant, and it keeps coming back, good luck with it.

Yikes, I've just been reading about it on Wiki. Sorry I made so light of it; it's really nasty isn't it!
No problem about making light of it ! It is a very odd illness in that there does not appear to be a permanent cure and it can make you vulnerable to a whole range of conditions. I must admit that when the specialist told me l had it some years ago now , l didn't take it very seriously , that was until l had to have MRI scans and some seriously unpleasant drugs and so many blood tests that l suggested they install a tap into one of my veins !
I have been lucky for a few years not to have any more problems until now so l hope with luck this latest hiccup will soon clear up .:okay:

Isn't it the cause of Glandular Fever?

Not from toilet seats then?
Unlikely :whistle: More likely due to my itinerant life over several years of "employment" in some less than savoury parts of Asia where if you were lucky there would be a hole in the ground and keep an eye open for toilet pigs . I hope you don't need a more detailed explanation of that animal !!
