Chatting Lupus Brain Fog

Lupus fog — the forgetfulness and fuzzy-headed feeling that can come with lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE) – can be one of the most frustrating symptoms of the condition. –R. Morgan Griffin

Check out this video of some lupus peeps talking lupus fog. The group discussion is led by Christine Miserandino, founder of ButYouDontLookSick.com. Check it out: http://lupus.webmd.com/community-tv-lupus-11/default.htm?vid=vd-1916-extv-0011. Don’t have time to watch? Click here for the transcript.

Diva Recommendation #1: Follow Christine on Twitter and receive “spoonie” updates @bydls.

Diva Recommendation #2: If you have a chronic disease, you should definitely read up on The Spoon Theory. It is a great concept and gives a great illustration of the limitations we, as patients, face on a daily basis. When I was first diagnosed and performing countless anxiety-driven web searches, I found this theory to be helpful and nerve-relaxing.

Stay Fabulous!
