    "Brainfog" or "Brainfart" that's what I call it. I think the reason why this happens is because we have so many things running through our minds at the same time. Some nights, I have trouble falling asleep or I wake up in the middle of the night and cant get back to sleep. :sleeping: I already feel so tired, then to top things off, with my lack of sleep, I feel like a zombie all day at work. Coffee doesnt help much either. :morning: Then at the same time, I have to deal with my headaches, joint aches, etc... :crazyeyes: There are times when my coworkers are talking to me and I just dont hear them... I'm in my own little world sometimes... Gosh, does it really get to our heads/brains? :? Because of all this going on, I get frustrated and irritable... then my headaches come back... its a vicious cycle.

I also have brain fog and sometimes coming home from work I am so tired I have difficulty maintaining focus driving.
    All my aches and pains tend to be on my left side; that's my dominant side. One of doctors theorized that illnesses in general, not just Lupus, tended to attack our stronger, more dominant side.

    I certainly hope this isn't going after my brain.
