I used to be able to remember the most random details about almost anything – now; I can’t remember whole events that took place in my life.
I used to not need to keep a calendar or list – I had it all in my mind – now, I can’t for the life of me remember dates or a store list without a list/calendar.
I will forget a simple word in the middle of talking.
I ask Eric, Marci and Gina the same things multiple times. I vaguely remember asking them said thing, but I never remember their answer.
I will be mid-sentence and completely forget what I was talking about….completely.
I can read mindless books, but books with any “technical degree” totally don’t make sense to me…which makes it really hard for me to read and figure out how to read about marketing my business…nothing makes sense!
Chemo brain sucks…I feel ignorant because I remember that I don’t remember and know that I don’t know what I used to know.
I wonder if this is how people with Alzheimer’s feel like when they first develop it. They know they should remember, but their brain just won’t let me remember?
Oh well…maybe my brain is trying to forget all the crap I have been through with chemo. I guess as I long as I remember the love I have for others and that others have for me…I don’t need to remember all the other stuff…but, honestly – it would be nice to remember.
