@1nan. It’s so true that exercise brings energy. Not crazy, overdone exercise, but simple walking. If I feel really tired, I get out and walk. My brain wakes up even though my body is very tired. I have really learned to pace myself with frequent breaks.

Thank you all. Exercise in any form does help. What I neglected to mention is that my spine is so damaged that pain and bone condition limit what that exercise looks like, but I can get pretty creative! As pushups on the counter while coffee reheats yet one more time in the microwave! Anemia is also a gift of myeloma. Sometimes I make a simple meal or special dessert and send an invitation. Who has learned that pushing yourself at home or to go out where you have friends and/or family will provide mental, emotional and physical good? (Especially with lots of silly conversation!)
