Does Anyone Else Feel Agitated?

Does Anyone Else Feel Agitated?

I am not actively taking treatments right now but I just found a decent size lump on the inside of my left elbow. I am finding myself very agitated and little to no patience. That is totally opposite of my normal disposition. I am sooooo tired all the time. I don’t know what is normal because of my extremely stressful job or if this is part of the disease. I have follicular lymphoma.

hi Terrie,I also have stage 4 Follicular Lymphoma.I am tired all the time,that is part of Lymphoma but I'm not so sure that the Lymphoma causes the agitation.I think it could be the stress of having cancer that cause it.Having cancer is very stressful and scary,I can't sleep at times from the unknown and use to be fearfull.Now that I'll be going in for the third treatment,I am not as afraid or stressed anymore because I now know what to expect from chemo.For me I have been very lucky that I didn't get real sick and I have only been sick for a couple of days right after the treatments.You mention you have a very stressful job,I think that your job and having to deal with cancer is enough to make anybody agitated.Do not be hard on yourself,I have had fits of anger while my husband sat and let me rant and just listened.Cancer is so scary that it's actually healthy to let yourself vent .People will understand.You can vent here if you need to,we are here to help and understand what you are going through.

Kelly, I think it is that we don't always "look" sick. Do you know what I mean? It's like I have to remind my husband that I have cancer. I truly think he doesn't want to admit it. He is not always as sympathetic as I need him to be. I think it upsets him too much. His solution is that I just need to get up and move and I will feel better or I need to eat better. Whatever... He loves me and I love him, but I just don't think he understands what this really means. I believe he is so scared of losing me that he will not "go there" with me.

I am tired constantly too. I have B cell lymphoma. The 😃 good kind Yay
But living with tiredness is awful. All I want to do is sit or sleep. I was a runner for 15 years and a walker for 25 years. Now I only want to sleep or sit and do nothing. Fortunately I am an artiste so love that part of my life.
