What Advice Do You Have For Others About Managing Fatigue?

What Advice Do You Have For Others About Managing Fatigue?

A MyLymphomaTeam Member said:

I exercise and drink plenty of fluids. If I have a day where I'm fatigued I give myself permission to rest that day. I used to clean my whole house in a day. Now I do a room at a time. I used to do everything myself but now I rely on others for help when needed. I have a lot of support from family.

Don’t be hard on yourself. Your body is in a literal fight for its survival. I found myself being in the middle of things and then awaken several hours later and I was still tired. I’d fought off follicular lymphoma three times between 2005-2915, and today I received my first infusion for my fourth fight and I am tired, but couldn’t rest. I take rest as I am able to get it. 😀

Sounds crazy but I exercise and keep going. I don’t give in during the day. I find I sleep better at night this way. A nap ruins my sleep

I have come to realize that I have to treat my energy as a finite resource. So now I try to plan where my energy goes. If I know I want to cook dinner one day, I make sure I do nothing else. If I want to spend time with friends, I minimize other things. It's like having a tank of gas and knowing how far I can go on it. I have had to learn to respect this idea...prior to this I was often frustrated with my level of fatigue. The biggest part has been accepting that I can't be now what I was back then. Of course I'm hoping this will improve, but I have to respect my current reality.
