I have 7 treatments left of radiation. This fatigue is NO joke. I guess one good thing is I actually get some sleep but at the the same time I never feel like I sleep, lol
The fatigue from chemo and radiation are very different. Chemo fatigue, I was always tired but could never sleep. Radiation fatigue, by 6pm I'm soo tired like I ran all day with no sleep the night before.
A week ago I couldn't sleep. And if I fell asleep, I couldn't stay asleep for more than 2 hours. I was taking sleep aids whether it be western medicine or natural sleep aids. Right now, I only need to take the natural sleep aids.
I'm hoping this gets me back on a sleep schedule. Wow, a sleep schedule would be incredible! I miss sleeping. Before cancer, I could sleep like a champ!! I was sleeping too much because I had cancer. But finding out I had cancer and cancer treatments have ruined that for me these past 10 months.
Let's pray and stay positive this a turn for the better....cheers to sleep!!!
