    I had not seen it.

    I'm told I had chemo brain off and on. I guess while I was getting chemo, especially during the first two rounds, I was busy concentrating on just holding on, getting rest and being quasi-functional.

    Going back to feeling "normal" after my last chemo (last March) has been a whole process of re-evaluation.

    But I'd sort of blamed all the missed connections in my brain synapses on age. I think there's a big difference between being in the early fifties and being in your late fifties for info recovery.

    Democrats promote the Common good. Republicans promote Corporate greed.

    •  Could be compounded by age; not clear we know (5+ / 0-)

      enough about the phenomenon to tell. Though surely it is a harder process of recovery the older we get in other ways, so this one  makes sense then too.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
