Tears

I know we all cry at some point in our lives. It may be that we are lonely, depressed, frustrated or we don’t even know the reason. As you cry your tears stream down your face and you try to hide them.

Many of us can’t do that. I’m not talking about hiding them. I’m talking about crying. We may have those feelings but no matter how hard we try we just can’t cry. Our eyes do not produce tears. You may wonder what is so bad about that… Those if us with Sjogrens wish that we could cry.

When my grandma passed away I couldn’t cry. I felt the same sadness, but the tears wouldn’t come. At the time I didn’t know about Sjogrens. I thought that something was terribly wrong with me that I couldn’t cry.

Yesterday was not the best day for me. No matter how positive I am about my illnesses and my life I still have my bad days. Yes, I was crying last night… It was only out of one eye. The one that still produces some tears. It’s things like that make you step back and realize that you are different. This is my life and the only one I know.
