Long time since I have written.  I do keep a prayer journal and comment in there about my health status as well.  It has been over a year and a half since dx.  It has not been easy that is for sure.  I am not on any meds at this time for Sjogren's.  The only thing that really does the trick for me is to go on a prednisone burst when my symptoms begin to get too bad.  I think that If my poor ears could stand NSAIDS they would realy help a lot.  My ears ring due to nerve damage.  Insomnia is still a constant problem, although I must say I am getting 6 hours a night right now and I want to count that as a blessing!  I met a lady who has Lupus.  She says she manages her disease by getting a kenalog injection 1 or 2 times a year and takes Aleve twice a day.  She also eats plenty of meat and good veggies and stays away from processed foods.  I think she drinks a good amt of milk as well.  Interesting!  I wonder.  I have tried the antiinflammatory diet some.  I think it is healthy but they tell you to avoid all dairy on some sites.  Lots of info out there.  Hard to know what to follow.
