Tragedy happened in 1980, and Nicki's life took a turn that changed the lives of much of our family and close friends around us. We called it the evil generation gap, and that explains it all. It changed our future, leaving a scar so wide that no graft could mend the space that was displaced in our healing. It is an incurable disease. I thought, "It is not the hand of God. It can only be the hands of Satan evil hands." I took from every event of our lives, especially mine, searching to find a reason or "the truth of things that had come." In my long search, you will see the point for my calling this thing the evil generation gap. It's a long haul that I found touched not only my family, but also many families like mine. It affects many people of all ages. It does not have a generation. This story not only teaches you the life of lupus, it also teaches you that God plays a very important part in the life of a person dealing with lupus and the family and friends who are around them. Nicki's doctors gave her a short time. When she was diagnosed with lupus, she was eleven years old, very active, smart and loved by all who knew her. God gave us much more time than was expected by her doctors and the medical staff who cared for her. As you take the time to read this book, you will see how illness can destroy, and destroy again, the lives of loved ones. In the still and peaceful night creeps the darkness that stands outside the doorway, awaiting the return of the beautiful smiling face of the one we hold so dear, and beneath that face is held a mound of pain.

Afflicting one in seventy Americans, Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that commonly causes dryness of the eyes, mouth, and nose, and that can lead to complications including profound fatigue, depression, and lymphoma. While there is no cure for Sjögren's, much can be done to alleviate the suffering of patients. This extensively revised handbook offers everything you need to know to cope with this disease. The Sjögren's Book, Fourth Edition is a comprehensive and authoritative guide, produced by the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation and its medical advisors and edited by physician Daniel J. Wallace, a leading authority on autoimmune disorders. This expanded edition provides readers with the best medical and practical information on this disorder, bringing together the current thinking about Sjögren's in an easily readable and understandable book, with an entirely new section on lifestyle issues aimed at improving the quality of life for Sjögren's sufferers. With more than thirty chapters written by leading experts, the handbook illuminates the major clinical aspects of the syndrome and is loaded with practical tips and advice. Indeed, it offers a wide-ranging look at the many faces of Sjögren's, covering diagnosis, the various organ systems that can be affected, the possible psychological problems, and the many treatment options, as well as a concluding chapter listing the web, print, and media resources available. It is a valuable aid that patients can use while discussing their illness with their physician and an excellent resource for family members. And because Sjögren's is greatly underdiagnosed, this handbook is a particularly valuable resource for healthcare professionals. Recognized as the bible for Sjögren's suffers, this reliable and informative guide is the first place for patients to look when they have questions about this little known but serious chronic disease.
