Does anyone know if lupus is also related to a part of the brain not functioning that has something to do with motivation? I am finding lately that I am unable to get up out of bed, or off the couch. I dont feel depressed in any way really. I am just tired, and unmotivated. I dont even want to make my own breakfast anymore. Or lunch or dinner. When you hear those words, it sounds like depression, but I think it is more than that. A part of the brain malfunctioning. I also noticed my heart beat is rather slow. I know I have a mitral valve prolapse my entire life. I wonder if at 53, I am just tired of working hard all the time.
I again, have an opportunity for a full time job, but not sure I can handle the long hrs, commuting and coming home to cook dinner every night. I know I am sounding like I am whining, but I really dont know if I can do it physically. I feel like I will have a heart attack. I try to explain this to my husband, and he just gets quiet.
I feel like I am just making excuses. Should I be working till I drop like everyone else in the world?
