A consultant, a friend of my boss, came into the office today. She is, apparently, going to help us with some proposals we are working on. She came in and I introduced myself to her, shaking her hand. She looked at my funny and said “I met you last week.”
I have no memory of that. I shook my head and asked her if she was sure. She was. She even repeated back a conversation I was having last week with someone else.
I have no memory of that. None. Her face was completely unfamiliar to me. I swear I had never met her. I had never seen her before. She certainly had not been in the office before.
- She’s lying or,
- I am getting absent-minded and forgetful naturally or
- this is another example of chemo brain.
I’m concerned, people. I’ve blogged a few time already about chemo brain and my general mental slowness at times as a result of it. This is a whole new level of chemo brain, if that is what it is. How can I completely forget meeting someone with whom I conversed? Especially while sober.
I played it off with a grin and a rueful shaking of my head. But ever since, I have sat here, trying to work but unable be very effective. I’m a little freaked out, truth be told.
