I can't get over how much this treatment has made me become such a recluse...I don't post anymore. I do not go out, other than to do my shopping, errands, etc. Nor do I socialize. I just feel so weak all the time. Earlier in treatment, I would sit here and think and think of something intelligent to say in posts and would eventually give up. My brain is just not functioning very well these days. I cannot remember names, words, something I said 1 minute ago! Ahhh!! It is pretty hard to have an intelligent conversation this way! :-)
For months I have been getting brain zaps that are really scaring me. I almost passed out a few times. They even woke me out one night! My GP is monitoring it...my specialist does not think it is the tx...no one else seems to be reporting this side. But I think it may be my antidepressants as I had somewhat that feeling when I can off my ADs...but not as severe.
I am going to be starting week 43 this Tuesday...the light is at the end of the tunnel...and cannot wait to be able to converse once again with people and try to get back to volunteering post tx. That always made me feel better.
I apologize to all for not being able to be a support system that so many of you are....you truly are all so wonderful for all that you do. God bless you all. Peace to you....Anita
