total loss of short term memory. Sort of gotten used to it, everyone around me has had to get used to it too. You just have to laugh.

I have to mark down on paper when I take my meds. Dont want to under or over dose. I also have to tell the scary old woman when I take them. We have fun with the problem. I love catching her being stupid. We find that laughing at ourselves helps a bunch in this crap. When I screw up I just tell her "baain toomoor" You got to play with the cards you got.

All the time. I'll go upstairs for something and the minute I'd get to the top step can't remember what it was. Oh this gets frustrating :) But at least there is some memory left LOL

While on chemo, I was terrible with cooking, unfortunately, I have no sense of smell, so if something is burning, I don't know it, until the smoke starts rolling around.
I burnt my hamburgers once (their on my facebook page, an ode to chemo)they looked like hockey pucks by the time the smoke got my attention, I had totally forgotten I was cooking. This has happened several times. I kept reminding myself I was cooking and then would forget it again. So, yep, totally understand!!!

I can beat that... one day I was talking on my cell phone while I was at home getting ready to leave the house. While I was talking, I found myself walking all around my house looking for my cell phone! I even said to my friend something about how I couldn't find my phone. She's like... uh, aren't you talking to me on it?
Boy, did I feel stupid and wondered if I was losing my mind!
Yeah- my memory is bad lately- I guess the combo of chemo brain and chemo induced early menopause has done my short term memory in! It's really bad sometimes!

I am so glad that someone brought this up. My family is constantly "catching" my goofs and then we laugh! Sometimes I think that I am going nuts when I can't remember what it is that I am doing . . .
