were I 97, I could honestly say I didn't feel any more tired than could be expected. I am, however, 54 and have two more radiation treatments to go. I work full time and must be beginning to look like my old self, if you discount the wig. I don't feel like that at all and feel far older than I did last April before this all got started. I am also incredibly bored with being a patient (makes me impatient) and with having just enough energy to notice things that need doing and not enough energy to actually do them. I'm worried that once "treatment " is finally over, the expectations that I will feel as good as I look (relatively)will increase and, frankly, I just ain't there. Being tired, feeling "frail", not being able to do what I used to do feels like a rapid slide into old age, which I had originally planned to have 25 years from now.
