Can anyone tell me if not being able to cope with processing what feels like too much information being given at one time is down to lupus? I find that even simple things, like my husband asking what I would like for lunch and then reeling off all the options put me in either shut-down or panic mode. I just want him to stop talking or for me to run away! Also cannot cope with things like being given directions to places or selecting a date from several options offered in conversation, although if written down I have no problem. Is this part of 'lupus fog' or am I just going bonkers? Or could it be dementia even? Anyone else out there with a similar problem?
