Thank you for the info. I will definitely try to find more information about the Sjogrens Registry, since it looks like Sjogren is giving me more problems than Lupus for now.
I still have problems figuring out how this visitors messages are working, that is why the late reply
I also enjoy living in the Bay Area. I have been to Monterey twice, visited the Aquarium, the 17 mile Drive and Pebble Beach.
I typed up some reports about the conference and posted them in Laurie's Lounge. I'll go looking for them and bump them up for you.
Have you heard about the Sjogren's Registry at UCSF? They are great there! It is well worth the trip. They give you a very thorough exam, do a saliva test and a lip biopsy, prescribe meds that they think will help and they PAY YOU $200 for participating. I'll have to look back through my e-mails and I'll try to remember to shoot you the info.
I'm enjoying living here - the bay is glorious. We're here for three years while my hubby gets his PHD - then it's back to Texas.
I noticed that you live in Burlingame, Ca. I was just there a few weeks ago, attending the Sjogren's conference at the airport Marriott. I live in the Monterey Peninsula area. We have several members who live in California, and quite a few of them seem to be in Northern California. I'm a newcomer - we just moved here from Texas last fall.
