Like many people, you may accept fatigue and sleeping problems as natural results of having cancer. Breast cancer can bring on complex emotions and fears. You may feel so tired from treatments or stress that you have trouble getting through the day. Worrying about breast cancer can keep you awake at night. Lack of sleep, which in turn leads to fatigue, may affect your self-esteem, mood, emotions, relationships and work.
But you don’t have to be tired all the time just because you have cancer. Doing what you can to get good quality sleep is an act of self-care that can improve your well-being.
