    Refreshing Your Memory: Easing the Effects of Chemobrain Through Training

    Speech pathologists can help ease “chemobrain” through cognition training, and by teaching patients to compensate for deficits in memory or skills.

    For decades, people going through cancer treatment apologized for, complained of and joked about mental cloudiness.

      There are many ways to cope with or manage chemobrain which do not require the use of a speech pathologist.

      I play a lot of solitaire. I also play a game call SET. Both games help me stay alert and I believe they have helped with my chemo brain because they force me to use my critical thinking skills. I never apologize for chemo brain, but I do explain it at times. People I care about have gone out of their way to be supportive and to try and understand what I'm experiencing. I'm lucky to have some fabulous people around me.

      There are a lot of spelling games on my phone now and they can really help with cognitive skills. I just love finding these games and giving myself the time to play as I spell out words.

      I have known for some time that learning a new language is very good for the brain and many libraries now offer programs on line for free.
