I had mono about 15 years ago. I've since had a blood test and tested positive for EBV...that was in 2006. The mono lasted for about 6 weeks.
I live in a suburb of Columbus, OH. We have had irratic weather this year. Very warm, but recently, we've had a cold spell. I do not have pets in the home. There are 2 smaller trees in my front lawn. I do ride my bike and rollerblade on a trail near my home. Hope this helps.
