I thought this whole chemo brain thing would get better after being off it for a few weeks. I don't feel like a complete and total space case anymore, but man. You'd think I could manage to get everything THAT IS WRITTEN ON THE GROCERY LIST. And yes, I wrote the list myself. And yes, I forgot more than one thing. Gah. I'm a list maker anyway, but I have to write every freaking little thing down. I swear I didn't used to have to do that.
Maybe it isn't so much chemo anymore as it is a feeling of distraction. When I need to remember something, I normally file it "in the back of my mind." Well right now, the back of my mind is pretty full of surgery and stomas and chemo and getting ready and...you get the idea.
It's just such a distractable, inattentive state of mind to be in. I don't really like it.
