Treatments will leave you tired. Your body will need rest to fight the cancer. I'm not saying you'll stay in bed all through treatment - I worked 9 days out of 10 most 2 week periods (1 day for chemo, 1 weekend nauseated). But your friend is the nap. Naps are good. If just for 15-45 minutes, you'll be better off.
And make sure you get a full nights rest too.
Also plan your sleeping areas. Yes, areas, you can have more than one. our bedroom is important - get comfy, maybe put a TV or books or other distractions in there if you are awake but still in bed. You can also make alternate areas - a couch with a pillow & blanket or an armchair. In my case, we set up a bed in the family room as we had extra bedding and I was always welcome to crawl in there & rest and still be with family members.
Plan and rest. Part of getting through this time.
