Lori is right, everyone reacts differently. But, your system has received a blow both physically and psychologically. It needs time to find balance again. Listen to your body. If you are tired, rest. I think you will find radiation another fatiguing experience. I know I did. It sort of sneaks up on you gradually. Rest, nap and go to bed early as much as you can. I found take out and deli food were my best buddies during radiation. I just had no engery to cook supper every night, and DH's idea of cooking is warming things in the microwave. Just plan to take it really easy during radiation. Good luck and be sure to let everyone know how you are doing. Hugs, Lauri (dxed 04/11/1996)

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
