I agree about the worst side effect being the sheer fatigue, although I did hate all the vomiting I had in the first 4 rounds. But people understand being sick. It's much harder for others to understand that you are completely and utterly knackered throughout every cell (that you have left) in your body and that the simplest of tasks is simply not possible. It's not a choice, it's a fact! I do yearn to begin to feel 'normal' - if you know what I mean. I can't do very much without thinking very hard - it's a bit like having an energy allowance and having to use the limited resources very selectively....so it's a bath today....no cooking or walk then....in fact, nothing else. Any thoughts on when 'normality' might start to return?
