A Bit About Me

I am in my early 30s and living with Sjogrens and other autoimmune related health conditions.  It took four years of illness and countless doctors’ appointments to get a diagnosis.  Just as my life was really starting, I became sicker and sicker and unable to work and continue graduate school.  Now I am learning to live with an autoimmune disease, which is a tricky complicated journey and want to share my experiences with others—the good, the bad, and the ugly.  While there is joy, there are many frustrations and my husband and family and my strong stubborn will have kept me forging ahead. 

I love to giggle and act silly and am one of those do-gooder types.  So I hope there is some good that that will come out of supporting each other and sharing our tricks and tips for working through daily challenges and make others aware of autoimmune disease and chronic illness.  I hope you will share your stories and experiences too.
