      Easier said than done I know!! Trust me I had to learn by trial n error!! If your body is like mine..if you do too much- you will hit a wall and then it takes a couple of days to rebuild:( so try to be patient so you don't feel that way:)

      Cat: I am 7 months from my 2nd SCT. Here's a conversation with my hubby:

      Me: Honey I'm going to get the mail, to the fruit stand, to the bank and then to the butcher. I should be home in about 60 minutes:

      Hubby: OK, what time should I wake you?

      In other words, all I did was drive to these places, all within 10 minutes from my house, get out of my car, do 5 minutes of business and get back in my car. I did that at each stop. Not exactly a strenuous day. But it was my day and I needed an hour nap when I got home.

      Patience, kiddo. I was still puking after 28 days. Many hugs.

      Getting out n running errands is a tiring job for me, too!! I use to get so frustrated that I would get tired after grocery shopping, etc!! As long as I was out doing it I seemed to be fine. But once I got home I would crash!! Recently they discovered my B12 was depleted. I'm now taking shots. Im on day 6 of my daily shots for a week. Then weekly, then monthly... I do feel less tired so I guess they are working?!?! I'm not sure how I am suppose to feel so that's why I hesitate. I think I was so low it will take a lot to get me where I should be. I don't think I will ever feel like a rush of energy. But that's ok just getting me less tired is AWESOME!!
