If I Only Had a Brain

I should be flogged for delinquency. Time sure has a way of marching on and leaving me behind lately. I miss a lot of things but mostly I miss my mind! I keep wondering if my memory cells post chemo will ever regenerate.

For the most part I am fine and my energy level is amazingly improved - for that I am grateful. Yet I keep on forgetting. Thank goodness, so far nothing has been life threatening and it's usually silly things like car key misplacement; pieces of paper with important information; bills; forgetting why I went downstairs and having to go through the painful ritual of retracing my steps. As far as my teaching, I still think I am on the ball, and so far, none of my students have said anything...except maybe poor Leanne, who was not impressed that I forgot to get her birthday present ready! Thank goodness she still loves me.

I really have not forgotten to write here, though. It is high on my list of things to do; yet the days whiz by and somehow, it has been shoved to the back burner. Determined to make amends and get back on track, I am going to challenge myself and get back into the routine of sharing and spouting.

I am going to force myself to write a blog a day I have to be the world's worst procrastinator, so this is going to be tough. Okay...on your mark...get set...go!

When you find yours (brain), will you help me find mine! Aaack!

Hey Judy. Thanks for making me feel like I am not alone. There is sweet comfort in numbers. Maybe one day, life will resume normalcy - now all I have to do is define normal! Blessings and Joy (anyway!)

Good to know I'm not alone, about the "brain thing." I think that it does get better with time, but it's hard to know how much of the forgetfulness is chemo-related or just a fact of aging! :)

Ditto to WhiteStone's comments. I too have to join the group.
