If you have not yet heard the news, I am now the new President and CEO of the Sjogren’s Foundation. I am honored to be selected by the Board of Directors to lead this amazing organization. As Steve Taylor moves to the Arthritis Foundation to make an impact for that organization, I proudly grasp the baton he has handed me to continue the race for Sjogren’s patients and the medical community. This, however, does mean that SjogrensLife changes.(more…)
I am pleased to announce the new SjogrensLife website! It took me a bit longer than I expected to design, but a website (instead of blog-only) is necessary. I will now be able to offer some of the items that I am passionate about bringing to you. I had fun creating it and choosing bright colors to lift up our spirits.
Think of the new SjogrensLife as our “Autoimmune Disease Lifestyle” home. It’s not the lifestyle we wanted, but it’s the one we have! And I want us all to make the most of our lives! The tagline has stayed the same ” Navigating Life with an Autoimmune Disease” but the offering has expanded. With this new format, it will be easier to find product ideas, resources, lifestyle choices, and blog posts that address what you are seeking. And if something is NOT on the site, please do let me know what interests you.
Let me take you through some of the highlights of the site…I hope you like it!(more…)
Determining the best Sjögrens Syndrome products to use for dry eye, dry mouth, (and other challenges) is such a personal process. We all have varying degrees of challenges and different products work better for some people than others. But asking each other “What are your favorite products” is still one of the most common conversations I have with other patients. You never know when someone has tried something new that works for them and could also work for you!
This post is about the best products that work for me. I have focused mainly on some supplements and items for dryness. Addressing pain and fatigue will be a different post.
Take a look and see if some of these ideas might help you. And if you have tried products that you like even more, please do comment and let us all know about them! I have added Amazon links to this page as an Amazon Associate. This allows me to make a small fee if you purchase the product from my reference and link, without cost to you. I do this to help me with the costs of running SjogrensLife. I hope they help you as much as they help me!(more…)
