MY CHEMO BRAIN DAY
Marianne H., Fluffy Chick,
My chemo brain has gotten worse
since I finished chemo for malignant endometriosis in July. My
husband and I own a Bed and Breakfast Inn. This is how my chemo
brain day evolved:
I started doing the guest rooms and
within a short time I couldn't remember if I'd cleaned or turned
over a certain guest room. I checked and of course I had turned the
room over, but I had NO memory of changing the bed, cleaning the
Next, luckily, by accident, I
checked another guest room to make sure it had pillowcases. I was
stunned. I'd forgotten there had been guests in it the night before.
I began tidying it up for their return. Nearly done, it hit me that
the guests' suitcases and toiletries were missing. Then I remembered
they had checked out that morning!
The next morning making breakfast
for our guests, I thought the microwave was broken. I called my
husband in a panic to pick up one on the way home since we use it
all the time for our business. The upshot of this was that it wasn't
broken at all. I had totally blanked out on how to start it, after
using the same microwave for 8 years. Not only blanked out, but I
didn't even realize that I had blanked out!
I sure hope this gets better.
