    Haha Jerzi! my friends did not go that far to get me a cane. I think the best way to get around this is to view it from the humorous side

    haha
    I have had those moments as well- I thought it was just me!
    It's sometimes quite frustrating, though, when you are trying to illustrate a point and are at a loss for words. I've always been known as quite the chatterbox, so you can see how this affects me!
    As for the spelling, I find I get confused even with the simplest of words sometimes! Somehow I've managed to keep on trucking- I just got diagnosed in March of my senior year, but graduated with a 4.0 nonetheless! Even with hospital visits and so forth, which just goes to show that the occasional brain fart now and then can go unpunished.

    I sometimes just don't understand lupus--are there different degrees of severity, symptoms? My chief complaint was the aches-sometimes I think I don't have lupus from reading all of the other posts here, the pain described is certainly worse than I've had. Occasionally it hits me at night, the worst by far is the never ending fatigue. I sleep two hrs. during the day and by 6 I'm ready for bed again. Have no energy, no ambition, this is the hardest because I used to be so active. Also don't understand the connection with the sun issue. I thought staying out of the sun was a discoid precaution, not SLE-what happens? Overproduction of white cells etc.? Help me someone. Karen

    Yes Karen it's hard and I will say it it SUCKS Each person's flare is different and we all have been affected in some way or the other with what you are feeling. Sometimes my fatigue is so horrible I sleep 20+ hours, the sun makes me nauseous, etc... I'm not diagnosed with Lupus either I have Sjogrens and undifferentiated connective tissue disorder. Hang in there we are here for you
