sjogren's syndrome

on the topic of health....i wrote earlier that i've been suffering from extreme dry eyes and have been researching on the net about this condition. came across "sjogren's syndrome" - which seems to describe my condition - dry eyes, dry mouth etc. it's actually an autoimmune disorder in which immune cells attack and destroy the glands that produce tears and saliva.

however, it appears that my condition is a very mild version of it. the eye doctor i went to, made a slight reference to the syndrome but didn't seem too concern about my condition.

not that the dryness is bothering me much. in fact, i got used to it, and symptomatically address it with artificial tears. hopefully it remains mild and something that shouldn't bother me :)
