Support Groups and Counseling
Living with the effects of Sjögren's syndrome can be difficult. Sometimes you will feel frustrated, perhaps even angry or resentful. Sometimes it helps to have someone to talk to.
This is the purpose of support groups. Support groups consist of people in the same situation you are in. They come together to help each other and to help themselves. Support groups provide reassurance, motivation, and inspiration. They help you see that your situation is not unique, and that gives you power. They also provide practical tips on coping with this disorder.
Support groups meet in person, on the telephone, or on the Internet. To find a support group that works for you, contact the following organization or look on the Internet. If you do not have access to the Internet, go to the public library.
