      Iabarbosa, I know exactly what you are saying ! You still feel lousy, especially tired and so forth. And the thing that I did not expect was the depression that just seemed to come of no where. I thought I would be doing happy dances, but instead I felt anxious and so off kilter. It's the constant activity of appts and chemo and any other treatments, doc appts, etc. Then suddenly - nothing, not until you have an appt with you doc in a few months. It's a shock to your psyche, took me a long time to readjust. I saw a therapist supplied by the cancer center, she confirmed all this. Suggested that when I would wake in the morning, to start off by thinking of all to the things (and people) that I have to be grateful for.
      So I don't know if your's is all physical or a combination, but know that you'll get there - be patient with yourself. Good thoughts coming your way !
