Hello everyone, my name is bethany. I'm 23 now and was dianosed with lupus when I was 15. I'm a nurse and live near brisbane. I felt depressed and upset. I found your site and it made me so happy to see that there are others that are expriencing the same frustrations that I do. And foggy days I thought I was the only one that couldn't think straight all the time. I've learnt so much already. Mind you I found this site after google searching natural cures for lupus and found quickly that's not really an option lol. But I look forward to readng all your stories and learning more! Thank you and have a lovely evening xo

Hey bethany from Australia! good to have you on here. There's a thread on here somewhere (in the lounge area) about "you know you have brain fog when..." that's full of little tid-bits of fun about the subject. My "fog" is going through about it's 3rd iteration, since each med used seems to change it somewhat, but all in all, it's just confusing... tic

Hi Bethany
I am new too, sorry you have had to join here. You were so young at 15 to be diagnosed, but you have become a nurse, and got along with your life and I admire that greatly. I hope you get some support and make some new friends on here, take care x
