hello fellow luppies,
as you guys know us luppies have slurred speech and difficulty focusing, mine is usually towards the end of each day or all day during a flare. but recently my speech is worse; i cannot string a sentance together without stumbling,using the words in the wrong order, forgetting a word or stopping mid sentance? im not in flare but im like this all day now.
my vision; it takes a few secounds longer to focus clearly, i mean it feels like the worlds slowed right down and i feel dizzy for a mini second? sorry its hard to explain but its weird feeling. i use eye drops at night as i wake with dry painful eyes every day.
im overdue a eye test but cannot afford it. i get alot of headaches but thats just lupus. its both symtoms that undermine me at work, i feel stupid not being able to express words/ say things without getting total brain fog. i hope this question makes sense as its taken me ages to write it. im trying to keep my job as one of my managers is very understanding but the other is trying to get rid of "dead wood" i know lupus is holding me back. i do try my hardest but the wolf will sneak up on me and make me look a fool
im not brainy but im not thick either yet i come across as that as i cannot join in converstions as the words dont flow,sorry im not making sense am i?
anyone else like me?
a BIG heartfelt thankyou to all who replied to my last blog. you all are amazing,you took the time to show you cared,thankyou xxx
