Are you on steroidal medication?  Many lupus sufferers suffer from depression and cognitive problems.  There are even cases of dementia or psychosis although it's unclear whether this is caused by the lupus or the steroids used to treat it.  Since lupus is often linked to other medical conditions, a clear causal relationship is hard to establish.
