It’s Sunday evening around 5:00 PM as I begin to regain my bearings. It’s another post-chemo weekend.
Everyone is different. For some people chemo is associated with nausea and more. Not me. This is 100% fatigue. It’s weakness beyond anything I’ve felt before.
Nearly all yesterday was spent sleeping. It’s difficult to get an exact number, but I can’t remember being awake more than an hour at a time. Even when I was awake my steps were short, my brain a little fuzzy.
None of this is permanent. As the drugs get absorbed by my system I’m popping back, but its frustrating to feel you’re really not in control.
Just three more of these chemo treatments and I’m done.
