Healthcheck - sleepiness

In me the chief side effect of this new chemotherapy seems to be tiredness. I spent much of the weekend asleep, so no blogging. I am still slogging through the book on Bayesian statistics, so perhaps that is part of the reason, but it is a particularly relaxed form of sleep so I can't complain.

Almost for the first time in my life, I feel no compulsion to do anything. It seems that all my life I felt guilty if I wasn't active, making things happen in a typically alpha-male sort of way. These days it doesn't seem to matter. I drop of to sleep, dream away and then wake up for a bit. Then I fall asleep again. I am quite happy about it.

After all this living, you finally are LIVING! Good for you Terry. Sorry about side effects----but, I'm glad you are comfortable with no pressure----it is the way we all should feel.

Take care Terry, there are people out here who care about you!

So pleased you can relax and sleep, I remember many of those days myself after my SCT, I am almost sure that the amount of sleep and relaxed days I had contributed to my better recovery.
Take good care we all want you to feel well.
