The importance of support

Self-help groups offer members and their families the opportunity to meet people who are in a similar situation to theirs. These meetings allow participants to share their concerns, concerns and questions. It is also a place where tips, tricks and strategies are exchanged to understand and overcome the difficulties encountered.

Taking care of yourself is one of the most important things to do following the announcement of the diagnosis. One way to do this is to create a circle of friends who know what you are going through and with whom you feel comfortable sharing your fears, frustrations and joys. These encounters will not only help you feel better, but also give you more energy and a more positive attitude that will help you better cope with the daily challenges of the disease. In addition, exercise has been shown to reduce inflammation, increase muscle strength and maintain the flexibility necessary for overall good health.

People of heart

Self-help groups, made up of volunteers, enable people with Sjögren’s syndrome to break their isolation, answer questions about illness and their well-being, and thus improve their quality of life.

 

You are warmly invited to all our activities.
