Sjögren's Syndrome

This should probably be in non-tennis, but I figured Venus' fans would be the most informed about this. I have a friend who, after years of misdiagnoses from specialists, was finally diagnosed with Sjögren's this year (by her eye doctor ). She had known something was wrong with her immune system, and I had told her about Venus and the long battle she has had with an undiagnosed disease, and I think it has been helpful and inspiring for her to see the strength and vocal determination of Venus since she's been diagnosed with Sjögren's. I was hoping that one of you might have more information about how Venus was finally diagnosed, or even links to interviews she has done, or anything like that.

Thanks in advance for anything you guys are able to find! I for one am completely in awe of what Venus has done this year. She had one goal, and reached it with dignity. She is an inspiration to anyone who has struggled with an autoimmune disease.

There is going to be people who won't believe in me. That's really not my problem.
That's theirs. Because guess what? They haven't won WIMBLEDON. I have.
