    I was recently diagnosed with this diease Sjogrens, and I had heard about it breifly when Venus Williams was diagnosed with it, but I was not interested about the disease at that time, but when I got diagnosed with this my world changed. Now I cant read enough about.

      Hope you're doing okay. I had a doc raise the subject of Sjogrens as I have mild rheumatoid arthritis and often have dry,sore eyes. They seemed to decide I didn't have it but had a poor quality tear film. Recently a research nurse at work was asking for volunteers to give blood for a project involving hospital patients with Sjorgrens, comparing elements of their blood with people in the rest of the population. Lots of us volunteered, as I work in a hospital. She took about seven or eight little bottles of samples, I thought it would just be one! Anyway, let's hope the researchers make some headway into the condition. Best of luck to you.
