My energy levels tanked for a number of years and the best I ever got back to was about 80-90% of what was my old normal.
I blame the radiation ( no scientific proof ) with that and the fact that a few of my WBC counts stayed low or low/normal for YEARS
However I am now an old fart so ... I should probably be getting less "energetic" anyway
(( screw THAT nonsense
I have never been at the " cannot even get up to pee ... " level
BUTT I do understand and can relate to how and why
that would mess with you/us/me
We do just KEEP ON !!!! keepin' ON !
