I was tired all the time. I couldn’t even walk up the steps to my bedroom without having to sit, rest, and catch my breath. No amount of sleep got rid of the amount of fatigue I experienced. Unbeknownst to me, that type of fatigue was due to internal blood loss and/or the cancer cells using up all of my energy. It is easy to shrug off any concerns and make excuses due to work, family, and personal obligations.
