sample of a 'normal' chemo-brain affected day
Jan G., Yucca Valley,
Wake up, check notes written to
myself yesterday... none of them made much sense. As I do with all
my other notes to myself, which don't make sense, I threw them away.
I for got I had a daily radiation treatment, and couldn't have cared
less when the hospital called me to ask why I hadn't shown up.
(Next) I decide I feel okay. I take
a bus to a busy area and… get lost. A nice policeman helps me get
back on the right bus to go home. First, (Before I head for home) I
went to pay my cell phone bills, which I finally remembered I was
there to do.
I get to the counter and had no
clue why I was there, who I was or where I lived. I handed the
customer service person my bag and asked him to see what he could do
for me. He was very patient."

can't carry on a decent conversation with anyone… I go see my
oncologist who tells me it's my imagination, 3 oncologists have told
me that… "
