Patient Voices: Sjogren's Syndrome




Good Morning!


During my morning internet cruise, I stumbled upon this excellent piece done by The New York Times.






It is a video piece of five Sjogren's Syndrome patients briefly (about two minutes) describing their journey with this difficult disease. It is not too often that I dedicate entire blog entries to something that someone else published, but I found this too compelling to not share. The stories are honest and informative by these well spoken patients. I was especially touched by the story of the Coca-Cola executive who finds that she HAS to work in order to deal with her illness.





Enjoy!
