Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation: Tips for Airline Travelers With Sjogren's

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching in the US, sjoggies everywhere are packing their bags and getting ready to fly off to an awaiting turkey and pumpkin pie.

Mmmmm.....pie......must....grab....rolling pin......


OK. I'm back.

Sjoggies know that air travel, which is a PAIN even in the best circumstances, can be a MAJOR PAIN with Sjogren's syndrome: the dryness of the airline cabins, TSA regulations about traveling with liquids, the fatigue from crossing time zones and lugging all that stuff from one city to another.......gosh. The list could go on and on and on.

I'm thinking that this is a good time to post this patient education sheet from the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation:

I flew from the NY Adirondack Mountains to Salt lake City, Utah and back this month. 3 planes each way. WOW! I forgot how dried up my eyes, nose, mouth and lips used to get. More than 2 weeks later and I'm not yet back to "normal". I wish I had read this LAST month :-P
