You hear yourself handing out advice for friends going through menopause even though you're 34 and very fertile.
Newly diagnosed i 2012 with Sjogren's and feeling like crap. Just started Plaquenil and try to learn to live with the new me. Also joined by temporal lope epilepsy, auramigraines and PCO.

Your nightstand has:

5 creams
3 body oils
1 waterspray
2 lip balms
2 glasses of water
1 bottle of water in case you run out
3 different nasal sprays
Avene Water Spray
Dry Mouth Drops
NSAID gel
Kleenex

(Yes, that is my nightstand! Don't get me started on the drawers)
Sorry, need my bathroom mirror for eye drops

How about when you're talking to somebody and blink and one eye stays closed! Embarrassing!  :o

you know you're a sjoggie if....the best part of your shower is holding your eyes open and just letting the water pour on your poor dry eyes.

You know you're a Sjoggie if...while speaking to a coworker, one of your contacts spontaneously pops out of your eye (just like a survivor jumping off the Titanic). :o

  When you hold the record for biggest amount of copays in your pharmacy, they all know you by name and send you a christmas card.

You know you are a sjoggie, when you are driving at night in the rain with sunglasses on because the defrost air is hurting your eyes.

( true story. My husband was driving and I was in the passenger seat with my sunglasses on. He said I looked like a gangster)

You go to the pharmacy for ten refills of meds and the checkout girl asks if these are all for you.

You know you're a Sjoggie when you wake up in the morning and your nose burns so bad that you could cry...if you could cry.
