Mental Wellbeing post transplant
I was diagnosed with AML back in March 15, after the routine chemotherapy I underwent a transplant which sadly didn’t work therefore I had a second transplant in Feb 16. I quickly regained good health, in fact how well my body has recovered never fails to impress me. I feel as it at times I am still very much recovering from the mental trauma of the entire experience. Prior to being unwell I lead a very busy life, juggling work, family, friends, home improvements etc which looking back I took in my stride. In comparison, I now find juggling all those routine day to day tasks can at times be overwhelming, it’s as if my capacity to deal with stress has been reduced to the minimum. Coupled with still suffering fatigue to a certain degree, I feel as if I am still on the journey to recovery even though my body / blood etc. are in fine form. Does / did anyone else find that it took them time to rebuild their mental / emotional strength?
