• I have no energy and do not feel like running, walking, or even crawling fast at this point.

    I have no energy and do not feel like running, walking, or even crawling fast at this point.

    Everything I read says that I should be exercising every day. How in the world do you exercise when you have no energy to get out of a chair? I'm short of breath doing anything strenuous. Is this normal?

      When I was in hospital post-transplant, they sent a physical therapist. AYKM? It took all my energy to breathe! Rather, I focused on surviving before thriving. There is nothing wrong with having zero energy - you are fighting for your life. What, are you supposed to be the Energizer Bunny or something? It takes time to recover. Ask doctor and nurse about your situation and if your blood counts are OK. It is good to push yourself, but you know your body best. Now is no time to bust a sweat while trying to work out.

      Take time. Recover. Be at peace. Seek soothing things which will help you spiritually. You can do this! Just don't over-do this, right?

      I remember my husband or son would take me for a walk so I could get a little exercise. And sometimes, it would just be one house before I would turn around and walk home with them. Baby steps.
