I got Chemo Brain...What's your excuse?

A fellow cancer friend of mine name Caroline keeps a daily blog about her fight with cancer. Her latest post is about CHEMO BRAIN.  HER BLOG

I found it an interesting read and I now have an excuse when I have a lapse in memory. It is comforting to know that I know have a medical excuse if I forget some important i.e. people's names, tasks I am asked to do, and now I just need to convince my professors that this is a legitimate excuse for extra time on homework.

Here is some reading on Chemo brain to better understand my "craziness" --

Article One

Article Two

I also went to my Utah doctor yesterday and I everything is on course for chemo to continue!

Thanks for the plug. There is also a good book out - but since I have chemo brain I can't remember the title. If I can find it, I'll send it to you.

Oh good Lord, I suffer from this so bad I lost my last job because of it! My boss said..."I don't know what's up with you, I have never seen anyone's mind that works like yours does!" I think he thought I was on drugs!
