10/05/2009 is a date which deserve to be remembered, I was diagnosed
Sjogren’s Syndrome by Far Eastern Memorial Hospital. Sjogren’s Syndrome
is an autoimmune disorder in which immune cells attack and destroy the
exocrine glands that produce tears and saliva. It is not surprised to me for
got this disease since mother also have such illness for many years, however,
I still feel a little bit upset………sigh……..finally I cannot escape from the
destiny as mother……
Currently, there is neither a known cure for Sjogren's syndrome nor a specific
treatment to permanently restore gland secretion, it is a bad news, but the good
thing is that the patients with SS will not die in short time, for example, my
mother has lived with this disease more than 5 years up to now, and can go
anywhere she want without any problems.
After struggling for three days, I do not want to be in a bad mood all the time,
after all, upset is nothing help to my illness, so “Don’t worry, Be happy”,
at least, my current symptoms is very mild and still can have a quality life.
Cheer up!!! “Laughter is the best therapy”.
