Yesterday was dubbed World Sjogren's Day, in honor of Dr. Sjogren's birthday. You may recall that Dr. Henrik Sjogren was the first to identify Sjs back in 1933.

While I wholeheartedly support increasing awareness of Sjogren's syndrome, I have just a teensy bit of trouble putting the words CELEBRATE and SJOGREN'S SYNDROME together in the same sentence. Or paragraph.

Call me cynical. But I'm just not ready even after all these years to celebrate any aspect of Sjogren's syndrome. Sorry, Dr. Henrik. Not so excited to break out the party balloons, although a cake wouldn't be bad, come to think of it....and there will be no presents. Definitely NO presents.....unless they come in the form of massive amounts of research dollars.

But I can support the awareness and research fundraising! Head over to the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation to learn more.

Happy Birthday Dr. Henrik Sjögren!
