It's great to have you on board; the "brain fog" is fairly common with SLE; and for some it comes and goes...and others it feels like it never goes away.
I love your attitude about life and making it work for you!!
Again, welcome....it's nice to have another sister on board!!

Yes, Cazanna; many of us deal with the confusion and memory problems. Some of us call these issues "Brain Fog". There are several posts on these forums where we discuss our Brain Fog, both seriously and tongue-in-cheekly! It is a real symptom of Lupus and some think that it is due to central nervous system involvement.
The dizziness that you feel when under stress may be an indication that your blood pressure has risen. It might be advisable for you to check you blood pressure to make sure that you are not suffering from High Blood Pressure. This is a condition that can be serious, but one that can also be easily avoided and treated!
Let us know what you find out. I wish you the very best!
Peace and Blessings
