New to Sjogrens World Forum
« on: June 08, 2009, 02:17:21 PM »
Hello, I'm new to Sjogrens World. I was diagnosed with SS in February 2008. I'm a lady who lives in Maryland and I'm 47 years old. The Sjogrens Syndrome Foundation has a support group that meets in LaPlata, MD. I'd like to know if there is anyone with SS that lives in Prince Georges County, MD. I look forward to participating in the forum and the social networking. Thank you!

Welcome to the reluctant members group. I am a newbie as was diagnosed in March 2009. I live in Iowa.

Glad you have a support group there. It is nice to have others to talk to that understand. Just because I person may look ok doesn't mean they feel ok - I get that a lot.  Great website here and lots of friendly helpful people.  Everyone is so nice, friendly and helpful here I'd almost swear they were all Midwesterners.  :D :D ;)
You don't get that look or feeling that makes you think you are an alien from another planet here.
