Let’s say hello to Darlene from Washington


Hi there, Darlene

Welcome to Sjogren’s Syndrome Support. We are happy you found us!

I am sorry to hear that your diagnosis appeared somewhat out of the blue. What an awful feeling. The fact that you feel overwhelmed is completely understandable, and you are definitely not alone. Has your doctor recommended any medications to help you manage your symptoms? Whether you are looking for information about reducing discomfort or a platform to share your story, I hope we can help you find the support and information you deserve.

In terms have how to navigate the site, you might have already discovered the search icon (magnifying glass, top right). This is what I use to browse through existing topics. I always encourage new members to create their own discussion posts as well by clicking the + New Topic tab. This is a great way to share your story and ask new questions.

We are here if you have any questions or concerns.


Danielle: Thank you so much for your kind email. I have been thinking about searching a couple of topics and/or posting a question or two. It really means a lot to receive an email. It takes a little of the nervous, new member, stress away and it makes me feel very welcome.

I truly appreciate it.

Hi Darlene,

So great to hear from you.

I completely understand why being a new member can be a little nerve racking. If at any point I can answer questions for you, please just give me a shout.

I hope you are slowly becoming more comfortable with the different tabs on the site. I know it takes time!

Hope you have a great weekend.
