65%

I've settled at the number 65% to describe how I currently feel. I have no energy whatsoever and it's a strain to stay awake during most of the day. I'm exhausted and I have no idea why.

I'm trying to write but it just makes me sleepy. I fall asleep sitting up for a 1/2 hour or so after Bill gets home. I feel tired when I wake up in the morning, even after having 8 hours of sleep. Cleaning the house up exhausts me.

65%. That's how I feel, all the time. I do wonder if it has to do with the long-reaching affects of chemo. Or if it's a Vitamin D deficiency or something. I need to get some bloodwork done.

So if you've been wondering where I am, you have the answer. I'm too tired to do anything more than simply try to get out some paying articles each day. I click on this blog and I'm too tired to log in.

Hi Sharon
Have you had your thyroid tested? It's amazing how many women, especially once they hit 40, need extra thyroid hormone. This would be an easy fix and the TSH is an easy test that your doctor should perform while s/he is checking for anemia. Your symptoms really sound like this could be the problem.
Hoping that this gets cleared up soon.

Hi Sharon - hopefully the blood work will show something easy to fix. Being tired all the time is just no fun, and after cancer we are supposed to be enjoying every day of life!! Take care...

So frustrating. All the doctors tell you that chemo side effects last for six months to one year...but that isn't true at all. I feel for you. Hopefully it's something easier (and treatable). Thinking of you.
