Chemo brain or cancer brain?

So maybe it wasn't chemo that made me a space shot... Maybe it was having cancer itself that did it. So if I went through it twice, I am at two levels of spaceshotness. I asked my husband to confirm this and he said 'for a spaceshot yes, this would make sense'.

The real term is cognitive impairment. As discussed previously, they are several arguments for or against this. Is it just what happens to your brain while aging? Is it a symptom of PSTD? Is it a side effect of menopause for women? The answers may never be known because they probably will never be able to pin it down

But I digress. We are almost halfway through pinktober, well just over 1/3 of the way. I see the trend this year as to people questioning awareness vs. research. I have seen glimpses for this, not just with Dr. Love's interview. I have seen more pink objects than I care to count.
