Hi BC - looks like you are getting some excellent help, they may be best placed to answer your questions. I think so long as you take it slowly, you should be able to get back to normal but consider how you got into this situation in the first place - you want to avoid a relapse. I am aware of other posters who now do ultras so anything is possible. Do you check your resting heart rate on waking? This is a very reliable way of checking on how things are going - more than 5 bpm up means you are either still recovering from exercise or your immune system is busy - best to rest on those days. I would try and be patient and not put yourself in the position of making a decision - since these illnesses are not understood you are unlikely to be able to make an informed decision. Why not keep an open mind and see where you are in another 6 months? Whatever you do, good luck!
