You know your're a Sjoggie when: Your stylist just completed a Paraffin Wax Treatment on your hands...but after looking at your hands a few moments later...thought she had forgotten your treatment.

I had just finished adding a few drops to my dry eyes before a dental procedure and just then the dental hygienist entered into the room.

She yelled "oh no, you're not going to cry are you because then I'll have to start crying. I won't be able to stop."  She started tearing up in the doorway still looking at me. I jumped out of the chair waving my refresh tears bottle in front of me saying "noooo, I have dry eyes, I'm ok, see..no tears..see ..I just have dry eyes...here are my eye drops." 

I then gave her a tissue and she was able to dab her tears away.

You know you're a soggie if they know you by name at the walk in clinic and pharmacy.

You know you're a soggie if you never have to worry about drooling in your sleep in front of your partner.

On a serious note:
You go grocery shopping and put all the refrigerated foods in one or two bags...the important part, then tie those bags...so they show 'bunny ears' .. so you can find them without the hunt. Those go in the home with you....the rest can stay in the car until someone (not yourself) brings the rest in or gets hungry.

That is a genius idea!!!  ;D

You know your a Soggie if it takes you 3 days to do a load of laundry.

This applies to dishes and vacuuming too.

I hate that these jobs never end. By the time the dish washer is fully empty there is already a new load sitting on the counter.
