Article from The New York Times on Coping with Memory Loss

August 12, 2009 at 5:22 am | Posted in Cognitive Problems | 3 Comments

Hi all,

I just read this article in The New York Times that gives chemo patients advice on how to cope with “chemo brain,” a collection of cognitive problems that can make functioning difficult. Since many of the symptoms of chemo brain are similar to cognitive problems commonly suffered by bipolar people, you might want to take a look at this article’s advice on how to remember those pesky names and appointments.

Love to all.

    Your Brain after Chemo: A Practical Guide to Lifting the Fog and Getting Back Your Focus by Daniel Silverman MD PhD and Idelle Davidson (Hardcover – Jul 13, 2009)

    • I haven’t. Would you recommend it for bipolar people with cognitive problems? If you found it useful, I will definitely take a look.
