April Awareness Day 18 - Christi

Christi 48 (Diagnosed at 39)

Although I look healthy, I am often tired and in pain. When I plan for an activity/event, ALOT of preparation goes into making it work, so when I turn down last minute invitations it's truly just to keep from the possibility of being a burden.

I always plan ahead, carry liquids with me all the time and never leave home without meds or eye drops.

The Porto Vino handbags are a lifesaver. They are meant for wine but great for ice cold water as well.

The Sjögren's Foundation began with the sharing of stories, and now, 40 years later, we are still working to keep the spirit of national awareness alive with our #ThisIsSjögrens campaign.

Every day in April, we will highlight a different patient and show a glimpse into their life with Sjögren's. This year, we will also use this campaign to give a unique "patient to patient" viewpoint and dive deeper into various Sjögren's topics with advice directly from other patients. We hope these stories will help create a better understanding of this complex disease and let all patients know that there is support through this community.

Please help us celebrate 40 years by filling out the form below and sharing your story!! 30 stories will be featured in this year's April campaign, and all stories submitted are eligible to be featured by the Foundation. We will be collecting stories all through April 2024.
