My Diagnosis Story

I was recently diagnosed. It's been exhausting and overwhelming. I'm just trying to cope with it as best as I can. I have Sjogren's, too.

Most days I'm in bed. Everything hurts. I have been doing research and joined support groups. I'm hopeful. I have been making changes every day. Every day is a struggle. I have my emotional support animal to keep me company. He brings me great joy.

Much love and understanding and compassion to the other warriors out there. We are not alone. We will get through this. Never give up.
