Sam, a year is nothing. I was DX in December 2004 and had the full works of treatment. It took me a good 3 years to feel back to 'normal'. My energy levels were zero and when I got out of bed I just wanted to crawl back into it again. I was diagnosed with depression but to this day I don't know if it was that or if it was just the fatigue, the one can cause the other! Doctors don't really want to know either when you say you're tired. Didn't help that chemo threw me into menopause at 51!
I always remember a friend telling me to 'get a life' when I told her I couldn't meet her as I didn't feel up to it (a 60 mile drive). I was shocked and hurt. Anyone else think that's cruel?
Sorry, this is horribly negative and I do hope you pick up faster than I did. Mainly I wanted to say that how you feel is totally normal and it will go away, I promise. Be kind to yourself and try and get as much rest as you can.
