    Mayfly nymphs live for a couple of years in the water. The next stage is subimago, which is quite brief. The final stage is imago, which lasts just long enough to mate and lay eggs. (In one subspecies, about 5 minutes.)

    Chemobrain is a brain injury. Think of it as a TBI (traumatic bran injury) without the physical trauma. While some people have marked improvement by the end of chemo or the first year after chemo, many others suffer the effects for 5, 10, 20 years and more.

    Moreover, chemobrain is not only caused by chemo. Surgery, radiation, targeted therapies and hormonal therapies also play a role. What is truly surprising, but backed by current research, is that cancer itself causes chemobrain.

    We, the afflicted, have to fight hard to obtain even minimal therapy for what turns out to be a devastating after-effect. Although there has been some improvement in oncologists’ group-think, they still don’t quite get the everyday impact of the brain damage caused by cancer and its treatment. Nonetheless, the research progresses, so we may eventually at least be taken seriously.

    I’m not so sure about “propaganda” and “a lot to answer for.”

    Two of the happiest years of my life were spent living in a tent. (This was by choice, which is key to the joy of such a decision. Choosing to live reduce one’s lifestyle to a defined minimum is a far cry from enforced poverty. )

    I did have running water (showers, toilets) and a place to cook and store food, so I wasn’t exactly roughing it. I just didn’t have a lot of “stuff.” I didn’t miss the stuff, and I loved how its absence made me feel light and free.

    Merely venting about wrong-doing is not a virtue either. Take action, or the anger will eat you alive.

    And never let anyone tell you that your anger is not legitimate. Ignore those who would bring you down—they are not worth the time it takes to respond to their trolling. Just act to change the wrong.

    In case anyone ever reads these comments again, you cannot get Vitamin D from fruits.

    Good grief.
