Morning JLM, you are doing truly amazingly.
I know exactly what you mean, i am 4 months into 6 month treatment and i pushed myself for those 4 months with fitness, gym, running, walking, taking my dog for a walk and working full time pretty much with lots of meetings and walking around to appointments. Mainly because i was told fitness and exercise is critical during this time, wow it's hard sustaining that isnt it?
But i caught a lung infection last week and ended up in hospital for 5 days, i now know pushing myself was a terrible thing to do, but it made me feel like i was not letting my life be any different than before.
I've only just accepted life is different for a little while. Being a fitness person, i obsessed too much over keeping it going, i'm focussing on food and nutrients now. that will help you feel better.
Walk your dog every 2nd day maybe, and shorter. I also make sure i take vitamin B, fruit and vegetables (i puree alot or make a soup) and of course water. I also tried red ginseng, but it doesnt taste good so i'm working on that one.
I hope this helps and i also hope you find your energy, I found if i just did little bits here and there off the lounge i felt ALOT better. Even just walking to the mailbox, bedroom, wash my face anything to just move without exhausting myself.

Well there isn't much else to do when you are tied to your bed, oxygen and a machine. So i finally got aroud to this blogging thing.
They have been amazing for me to read so now it's my turn to give back.
Wierdly, looking back at my time in hospital beig treated for lung infection, for nearly a week, I have finally realised it was a good thing, it's made me slow down and stop prioritising the wrong things.
