Since I posted my first post about how low I was feeling, some things have improved. The depression/low mood has lifted quite a lot - I haven't felt the "being poured down a drain" feeling for several days now. I still have some anxiety, and have to psych myself up to doing things that were second nature to me before the cancer. This bugs me but if that's my new normal, so be it. Meeting the challenges has helped my mood, I'm sure.
However, my insomnia is hurtling downhill - only 2 hours last night, the highest I can manage is 6.5, the new normal is between 5 and 6. I find it hard to cope with so little sleep on top of the ongoing fatigue. Not only is it hard to function, and I daren't drive this morning on so little sleep, I'm worried it might set the depression off again.
Baby steps, I guess; but oh, for a decent night's sleep......
Hugs to all.
