Together we will beat cancer

Hi I was diagnosed with grade 2 invasive cancer. I have had a lumpectomy and radiation. My treatment finished 3 months ago.  I wish I could say I'm better.  They're not kidding when they say "it's a journey"! I get so tired a lot of the times that having a shower and getting dressed is a big ask. I have changed to a very nutritious diet, do light exercises at the gym and I still get days where I don't feel well. Maybe I'm in a hurry to have my old life back but it's not happening. The pain and swelling in my breast wakes me up at night but the last 3 weeks I'm sleeping more with a nap as well! Blood tests came back healthy as a horse & ultrasound showed no excessive fluid or infection. Am fed up with constantly being in pain and my nipple breathing fire! Sorry - had to rant a bit to release as I've not looked well the last couple of weeks & my 18 year old daughter doesn't leave me home alone. Usually I'm a very positive & realistic person but just fed up I guess....anyone else in the same boat?
