Spelling and memory

I was rereading one of my posts yesterday and I saw spelling errors. A couple of words I missed somehow. I have always been such a stickler for correct spelling, so I found this out of character--and troubling.

There is some debate about the validity of 'brain fog'--cognitive difficulties associated with Sjogren's Syndrome and other autoimmune disease. I have noticed changes in myself over the past few years. I soon will be 36; older for certain, but definitely not a candidate for dementia yet. I guess I have always been a bit preoccupied, but this is something more. It's a search for words, names, the things I know are in there somewhere. Maybe I am just tired, busy with the kids. I sure hope so. This lack of brain power scares me.
