WHAT DO SOCIAL MEDIA AND CHEMOTHERAPY HAVE IN COMMON ?

Take a look at this infographic. I see myself in more than one place on this chart. You, too?

Two days ago, I think I may have said that Dr. Ganz had "an ace in the hole" as she was approaching a microphone to challenge the findings of a research study. Today, it's fair to say I am adding insult to injury by virtue of my social media activity.

I admit to distracted brain, I've been quick to blame chemo but... I may need a little discipline to correct some of my own problems.   It's one more block to add to the foundation I've been building this week.  I am going to study this poster to see how I can build a more productive day.  Interesting poster and more than likely adding to my ongoing distracted brain.

More interesting? According to this chart, a study at UCLA was done on this phenomenon. With tongue firmly inserted in cheek (or not), I might offer a suggestion. Maybe it would be a good idea to cross reference the research with Patti Ganz and company?  I see lots of words that look mighty familiar!

    1. I thought so, too-- when I see things like rewiring the brain and ability to multi-task and focus ...... I couldn't resist putting the two things together!!!

      Hugs my friend,

  2. Fascinating! As we grapple with my iPad addiction and our daughter's screen time, this gives us more food for thought. ~Kate of Kate Has Cancer (http://katebreastcancer.blogspot.ca)
