Titanium Texan;1881 said:It took me a while to get back into the swing of things, I started school back up wayy to early after my first treatments. Chemo brain was kicking my butt, and I did terrible my first semester back. After I finally finished treatment, it still took me awhile to feel back to 'normal'. I still feel tired, and I think that has to be a long-term effect, because I never had trouble sleeping before chemo. My brain does seem to work the way it did previously now, though, which is good.

Carey;1902 said:I'm getting my ass kicked working full time and trying to keep up my apartment and do daily activities. Compound that with sleeping issues and going on week 3 of a cold/sinus infection and I haven't been able to do much outside of eating, working, and sleeping. I don't know if it'll ever get better but I hope it does because this sucks. I struggle with chemo brain every day and it's gotten a little better, but it's just so slow. I've been out of treatment for over a year, but am on lots of medications due to my bone marrow transplant and complications that arose from that. I know that isn't helping any.

I'm pre-med, so I don't know how I'm going to get used to doing all that work in science classes again, especially organic chem uuuuuuuggh! I had done half a semester of orgo before I got sick and had to drop it. Not looking forward to having to take that again.
Colleen;2124 said:Ugh, I totally feel for you!! I took orgo last year, but I'm now reviewing it for the MCAT. Gross. Possibly the worst subject ever. I totally recommend buying some type of review book if you are having trouble. My textbook was good for practice questions but not explanations. I find the review books (either specifically orgo or something like an MCAT book) are more straightforward.
