It's one year since my last chemo treatment for uterine cancer and about a year and a half since my total hysterectomy. I've been increasingly concerned about my state of mind; my inability to concentrate, the words I forget halfway through a sentence, I'm feel like I'm just not as bright as I used to be, have wide mood swings, can't sleep, am anxious, frustrated...I thought "chemo brain" was a kind of joke; that the symptoms I have had for the last year would go away...or it was something I just needed to "get over". I stumbled onto this site after googling "chemo brain" and found the article "Chemo Brain Studies Underway" about an hour after it was posted. Talk about good fortune! I am encouraged to learn that it's not "all in my head" or something to be ashamed about. I will be talking to my doctors about this and I welcome any comments from people who are going through the same thing.
