jane you are right on! I certainly understand chemo brain. I actually had many sessions with a psychologist whose specialty was chemo brain. He offered me many tips on how to remember things. I joke about it because the truth is I can't remember any of those tips! I'm 68 and my cancer has recurred three times since my diagnosis in 2005 (indolent NHL), so I've had plenty of chemo, and radiation. I always considered myself a "word" person, as opposed to a "number" person, and people would come to me to edit their correspondence, articles, etc. , and I helped edit a law journal. I could spell just about any word just using phonetics, now I can't spell the simplest word! Above, when I wrote "He offered me many TIPS" people not familiar with chemo brain would be amazed at how long it took me to find that word! Thanks for putting yourself out there. Scared right along with you!
