Cancer fatigue is different from everyday tiredness, feeling tired and lacking energy is the most common and often the most debilitating side effect of chemotherapy. 

It can come on you all of a sudden and everything seems overwhelming.  Resting or a good night’s sleep does not help. Reactions to cancer-related fatigue can be lack of concentration, unable to make decisions, feeling irritable and often tearful. These are normal .

We have included in Kit a journal to keep a record of your energy levels to see if part of the day is better than others. You will then know when is the best time to go out or get a few jobs done around the house.
