Hi there, Christy
Welcome to Sjogren’s Syndrome Support.
Despite being a single parent and managing two jobs, I think it is so admirable that you are wanting to learn more about Sjogrens… but how frustrating that the rheumatologist you met with did not fully explain its impacts on the body. I am happy you found this community. Members speak from a place of personal experience, and I think you might find their insights and knowledge to be helpful. Your story will also be valuable to many, and I do hope you will consider sharing pieces of it when and if you feel comfortable.
