    Diagnosed with MDS in September. Currently on round 3 of chemo. How can i manage my tiredness?

    Kevin Dugan

    I don’t think there is any easy answer to this. Just rest when you are tired, sleep as much as you can, restrict activities, eat a good diet. You can’t do what you use to be able to do, but when you feel up to it, take a walk, get fresh air. You have to put other things aside for now, your focus has to be on yourself.

    You have asked the preferable question! As Kevin said there is no good answer…WELCOME to the number one answer pertaining to MDS! What is often frustrating and a bit scary is almost none of us have the same symptoms to this disease or it’s treatments.
    Kevin is right, one of the most important things we-you have to learn is to listen to your body and give it-YOU what you need. For many of us learning that it one of the hardest lessons. I have always been a 100 mile an hour person… I have HAD to learn that I can no longer do that. I am one of those who now is tired most of the time…frustrating but ti is what it is and fighting it gets me nowhere…trust me I tried! I am not a overly (?) religious person but I really feel like God has said “I NEED you to pay attention…time to take care of you!” Good luck with your treatments….
