What I've been doing...
I know it's been a long time since I've posted about my experiences. I want to give everyone an update on what I've been working on and what I have planned for future blogs.
The bulk of my time in the past few months have been spent on building out a symptom tracking app, called Sjogren's Tracker. This is my first time working on my own business, and a tech-based one at that. It took me a while to find good developers to help me build out both the iOS and Android versions of the app. I'm happy to report that both are published in the App Store and Google Play Store. It's still very new and I'm trying to build things that my users would like. So if you're interested in trying it, the standard version is completely free to download and use. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. And if you want to try out the Premium version, please feel free to email me at email@example.com for some promo codes. I’m really looking to help patients better organize information, to identify triggers through statistics, and to facilitate communications with physicians. I hope you will give it a try and see if it helps you with your daily tracking needs.
Going forward, I've been thinking about what types of posts I would like to write. Something that has always interested me is ongoing research in the field of Sjogren's disease and other autoimmune disorders. So, I think I will write periodic blog posts that summarize helpful research in the field. The next one, that I'm currently working on, is how common fatigue is as a symptom among those of us with Sjogren's. I will try to cite all my sources and link public research papers. If anything, I hope you can take the research paper to your physicians to better educate them on the systemic impact of Sjogren's. Along with these types of blogs, I will also post some on the different products I've tried (like so many eye drops...). I'm not being paid for any endorsement- I just want to share everything I've used and my take on them so it can save you the time of finding and trying them all yourself.
Time for me to get to work writing those blogs. In the meantime, if you have any comments on both the app and what other blog posts you would like to see, please comment or message me. Thank you :)
