    Do you mind telling me a little about your situation? I might be able to point you in the right direction

    Oh Nancy you are at the right place and no, you are NOT crazy! You will find a lot of "doctor bashing" around here because so few understand this disease! Although everyone's symptoms are a bit different the things you are going through are quite normal. The not focusing is what we call "brain fog". There are many things that go with the fog such as inability to focus, forgetting things, losing things and on and on. There is actually a kind of funny thread called "you might have brain fog when" it is all about the brain fog and the funny things we do. I have attached the link below

    http://forum.wehavelupus.com/showthr...light=brainfog

    The bruising, the pain, and tons of other things go alone with this disease. You aren't alone now. You are now a member of the WHL family so feel free to ask any questions you want and start new threads if you want to do that. I am so glad you joined and I look forward to getting to know you!

    nancy - Before my diagnosis last month, I have often wondered if I was losing my mind. You are not alone. I can tell you I am still trying to sort of some of the messes that my losing focus/forgetting to do something/feeling fuzzy brained have caused. I used to be able to remember everything and was very organized in my head, never needing to write things down. I could not believe when I read that this brain fog may actually be part of the disease. I just wanted you to know that you are definitely not alone and absolutely in the right place. Take care,
    Bunny
