But if you get it in your mid 20s or early 30s it destroys you and your body. You do not die immediately but over time you are 50% of what you used to be. Your strength diminishes , muscles, concentration body all go down. YOu develop IBS and your life is never the same.
Lets take a look at Mario(EBV), Henin(CMV) and Soderling (EBV) at careers destroyed by this group of Herpes 6 family of viruses. I know quite a few people in the same boat and it is soul destroying for them.
If it's a virus then there is no treatment right?
Who is Mario?
I thought Roger Federer had this a couple of years back. I didn't realize Henin retired due to health reasons.
Hopefully, Soderling would make it back - in the ATP - the competition is pretty tough.
