Ok don't know if I should be worried or all the emotional trauma I've been through since 2007, losing mum, cancer, husband leaving is to blame. Or as my sister said it was something that wasn't important to me so I forgot.

I went to an old friends profile on facebook to see how she was, saw she was engaged and I thought she didn't tell me, I've known her for so many years. Turns out she was engaged five years ago, and I did know about it. Now she thinks it's funny that I forgot but I'm worried. Last dose of chemo I had was Dec 2009, can it still effect you? I take anti depressants could it be that?, I know I forget short term things, but nothing like this. If I forget you all in the mean time just know love you as my second family.

I don't know thank you for letting me ramble, sonia 34 who's going on 90.

    Sonia,
    I'm 51 and haven't

    Sonia,

    I'm 51 and haven't had any chemo; I take my 10 year old everywhere with me because she remembers where we park and what door we came in. I wouldn't worry if I was you. Besides, if you do get very forgetful, your beauty will make up for it (inside & out)!

    ps

    if your going 90 then I am going 80
    I am 44 and have had similar memory issues, but at least I am only 80 in the brain.
    don't worry about it, I don't.
    I am lucky as I have a very distinctive 4wd that I can see easily in car parks.

    Ps if you forgot me, I was the one lost at sea

    Is your friend still engaged 5 years later? That is a long engagement + if you haven't seen this friend frequently in the last 5 years, I think it would be sort of easy to forget she's engaged + think more like she is "going out" with someone. Don't beat yourself up for this.

    The up-side...
    Hi Sonia,
    There's an up-side to this ya know...you can watch re-runs on t.v and it's like watching the original show...same with movies. Mother-in-laws arn't so aggrivating because you've forgoten why they aggrivated you in the first place, and the list goes on and on. Every day is a "new" day..haha! I'm just waiting for the day when I wake up and completely forget I have cancer..now thats something to look forward too!!! ha! Keep smiling and laughing..it's the only way to survive this journey! Love..Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

    see how bad my brain is, even simple maths I get wrong! doh
    when i read this again you actually added on 56 to your age 34+56=90
    so that means I would be 44+56=100
    I have made to the magic 100 mark.
