It’s crazy but it makes sense! If they are killing your “bad” cancer cells than they are also killing your “good” brain cells. Chemo brain affects different people in different ways. Some patients suddenly find themselves driving to the wrong place or getting lost, others become forgetful and confused.
What happened to me? Well, I’ve always been really good with names but during chemo and STILL TODAY, I often can see the name in my head but it won’t come out. I literally have to focus and concentrate going through the alphabet until the name comes to me. It’s terrible. It’s not just with people I see occasionally either, it happens with anyone and often it’s friends I see on a weekly basis! I’m hoping and praying this gets better with time but since I’m also getting older, it’s not looking too good!! LOL!
