How to (re)train your brain

Are you suffering from chemo brain, age related dementia, permanent brain damage from doing this   during presidential debates?  Is your give a shit broken and you just can’t seem to learn new things?  Well, have I got a deal for you!  A FREE website to retrain your brain. Just sign up and play a few games especially selected for you  http://www.lumosity.com   And by free I mean you can play for 5 minutes but in order to unlock the full glory of your brain it’s gonna cost you.

Yeah, so I signed up last night thinking it was just another free game site (like I need another time suck) and (I kid you not) when I tried to sign in today I could not remember my user name and password. Phew! I found this site just in the nick of time apparently!  Just signed up again and after answering a bunch of questions was  given 3 games to play.  After scoring, apparently there is an 87 percent chance I can improve based on my age and awesome skills.   For you math geniuses that means there is a 13 percent chance of me forgetting my user information again or deciding my broken give a shit is not on the short list for repair. I’m good with being in the minority.

    Bahahahaha! But you know what? I think I’d have done the same thing pre-chemo. On another tack, have you read any of this NYTimes blog? http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/06/not-a-cancer-survivor/

      Hi Katt! ❤
      I will keep posting to facebook, but at the bottom right hand side of my homepage a box should pop up that allows you to enter your email address for notification. Or you can hit "follow" at the top of the page if you are a regular wordpress user 🙂

    I just read another article about sharpening the brain – it said that taking walks in nature helps with memory (it doesn’t even matter whether you enjoy the walk or not). Maybe give it a try? Here’s the link if you want to read it yourself: http://bit.ly/ODcgUN

    I like the new header. Then again, my mind is probably failing me and I’m thinking of another page. Oh lord. I’ll give this a go.

    I have that app but I’ve never understood it. Do you have the free or paid version? I’m so stingy with my money (ha, because I don’t have any!) that I never pay for apps. But what with the brain tumor and all I’m thinking…..and thinking…..

    A friend of mine swears by coconut oil, she says her mother, who has Alzheimers, has improved her memory big time!
    Love your humor!! 🙂
