Fatigue seems to be a popular theme the past few days, so I'm here to ask about neutropenia. My 6th round was delayed last Tuesday because of low neutrophils, and I've been in bed more or less ever since. After 5 days I'm starting to wonder if I can possibly still be this tired or if maybe I'm a bit depressed after the disappointment of having my last round pushed back 10 days.
As I'm so far from home/friends/family, I've been doing this all on my own more or less, and there are times I could just cry, because I wish I had someone around even to put the kettle on. (And when I say I "could" cry, what I mean is I actually do cry.) I was neutropenic in December as well and seem to remember being in bed crying for a good solid 2-3 weeks.
So I'm curious what anyone's experience with neutropenia has been -- how long it lasted, and if you too felt super weepy from it? Anything I can do to push through it? I honestly feel like the emotional side effects from all this have been way worse than the physical ones, but maybe I'm a huge drama queen
