      gpgirl70, thanks for the perspective. It is a short duration treatment, only 4 weeks (20 sessions). I'm hoping that continuing to exercise will reduce the side effect of fatigue. While I certainly don't live to exercise, it is an extremely important part of my self care, both physically and mentally. I'm sure my outlook on having this disease and my resilience (so far) during treatment, have been positively affected by exercise. But, I can certainly modify it and my sleep patterns when my body says "enough!" Your sage advice is appreciated.

      Keeping yourself hydrated and rested will help with the fatigue. If you’re having to work full weeks, it may get overwhelming for you and that’s when fatigue is it’s worst. Also having a good burn cream helped me.

      theresarae, thanks for reinforcing the importance of hydration and rest. I can pretty much set my own schedule,too, thankfully. When I go in for the simulation session, I will ask about burn cream. Thanks for bringing that up.
