What meds are you on? Lupus and some of our meds can contribute to anxiety! Talk to your doctor about
maybe adding some anti-anxiety medications to what you take.
Forgetting small things, even a lot of small things, can happen when we are worried or distracted with bigger things, and is not of itself a huge worrisome issue.
Lupus does NOT increase the risk of other diseases!!!
When you find all these things building up to a huge storm in your head, take some deep breaths, think calming thoughts, and remind yourself to stay in the moment.
Hang in there.
