I'm 9 weeks post radiation and chemo. I'm feeling much better than I was. Able to have to quality time in my days now.
I never was a person with a lot of energy before cancer. I seem to get more tired more easily now and think maybe I'm expecting too much from myself.
It's easy to try and go back to the amount of activity I used to do. Daily chores, housework and such. Now I get overwhelmed with all the things I don't have energy to get to. This isn't something new for me, just seems worse now. (Being realistic.)
Maybe I should relax more and focus on what I enjoy, not on all the stuff that needs doing. I guess I feel like I got behind when I was so sick. Most of that stuff CAN wait.
Am I being too hard on myself? Has it taken others this long or longer to regain their energy?
