Just got diagnosed with srjogren. Apparently, quite a few of us with lupus get this. I didn't realize I had a problem. I thought it was all allergy related. Now I realize that lupus suffers often end up with it. I have been using eyedrops for it and now I don't feel right if I don't put the drops in my eyes every few hours. Better to have lubrication than not have it.

Yes, many of us suffer from Sjgoren's as it is also an auto-immune condition. Unfortunately, once we develop one auto-immune condition (such as Lupus), all of it's auto-immune relatives want to try to jump aboard the train (lol). So, there are many of us who have multiple, co-existing auto-immune diseases and Sjgoren's is one of the most common ones that we develop.
I am glad that the drops are helping you with the dryness. I wish you the best.
Peace and Blessings
