Hi White Sox,
Welcome....yes, it is hard to come to terms with this and it has been great place for me to come. For me changing taking my Imuran to night time from the am has helped the fogginess for me that and I am getting better day by day, I have a low red blood count right now so I think that is contributing to it, but in general not feeling well and not sleeping took it's toll on me.
How are your symptoms now?
I try to tell myself it could be worse, though a few weeks ago I was in a horrible flare and at that time, I couldn't imagine anything worse......I am doing much better now but sorry that was not uplifting.
Do all the reasearch you can on your meds, on your docs everything!!
I wish you the best.
