Do not let you Brain Tumor dictate your life. If you live your Life worrying about the future – Than what Good is living. I have seen it to many times; individuals who are depressed about their prognosis and live in despair. (See Prognosis Statistics)
Most are surprised that I worked through both radiation and chemo (Temodar) as an IT Director. I would leave at 4 PM, get my head microwaved at 4:30 PM and home by 5:30 PM.
I hope this sentiment gives everyone hope – If I can work as and IT Director, own an e-commerce business all while having a newborn than I feel anything is possible. Just this year alone I have sold $150k on e-commerce sites while working full time.
One of the major side effects of brain surgery, chemo, and radiation is chronic fatigue, short-term memory, and organizational issues. I have a feeling most of the us deal with this daily. However, it is combatable.
Here are a few tricks I have learned
I use Modafinil every morning, and any NO will prescribe you Provigil.
It is not addictive, and it’s not an amphetamine
Due to the toxicity and addiction profile of Amphetamines, I highly recommend not using them. The fact that they give this to children disturbs me.
I cut out coffee and use Cocoa Powder and Hot Water (no sugar) several cups a day.
