Living in a Temporal Anomoly

Today is Monday.

That's a surprise, because I was expecting Tuesday.

You see, I had a Monday yesterday, when everyone else was having Sunday.  Not that I did any particular "Monday" activity - I just had it in my head that it was Monday.

I insisted my son take the bins out to the foothpath (which has to be done on Monday.)

It was only this morning, as I was about to yell through my son's bedroom door that he was going to be late for his Tuesday class, that I looked at my watch and my temporal distortion became obvious even to my foggy brain.

It's not the first time I've been living in an individualised time zone, and it probably won't be the last.

Temporal anomalies are just part of life with lupus brain fog.


  1. Oh, you are a little funny! Wanted to ask - have you heard of Kyani? I use it for systemic lupus myself (dx 09/1999) and I haven't experienced toooo bad of brain fog, headaches, lack of energy, or random naps for the past 6 months or so. There is more information on (I use them as they are local to me and very kind and compassionate toward my life.) It's a blend of omega 3, noni berries, wild Alaskan blueberries, and superfoods -- I don't like to call myself vegan because it does have omega 3 and I do take that daily, but I do eat a very clean plant based diet - and still prefer to take Kyani for its benefits. I do hope that you have less of these brain fogs though. Take care now.

  2. "temporal anomalies"...I like that. I was very recently diagnosed with SLE which came as a total surprise, since the doctor was checking for RA. The symptoms have been coming and going since at least 2004, probably earlier, and I remember thinking, "How can one person have all these ailments at the same time?" Now I know that they're all a part of the Lupus, and I'm no longer considered a hypochondriac. (yippee) I feel like I'm losing my mind most of the time because I misplace EVERYTHING and never seem to know what day it is. Battling the urge to stay in bed or return to bed is my current problem. I'm so tired of waking up to the same thing....bed is so much more comfy. How do you cope with the fatigue and urge to sleep the rest of your life away, if you have those issues.?

    1. Sorry sweetie, I had to give up work. I sleep. I live my life in little gaps between rests and naps.


Thanks for being part of the conversation.
