DianeO's Story

Hi ....

Guess I can start with I saw Sharmyn's story this month on tv. The show caught my attention when hair loss and weight gain in her abdomen was mention as two of her symtoms. My thinking was hey that sounds like me. As I watch the program I started wondering if I could have cushings. I to am so tired of feeling bad all the time.

I found web sights with the symtom list. And then I found this sight.

I do know I have the hump, hair loss over the past 3 years(scarey), developed carpel tunnel in my wrist,(I don't do repetitive work), I have the dark ugly skin on my neck, my stomach is hugh (gross) and my legs and arms are skinny, developed anxiety over the past 3 years, I have delt with depression for a really long time, my weight gain has been really bad the past 2 years, and I have had weight battles all of my life.

I made a Dr.'s appt. I did the 24 hour urine test. I just got the results back today. The test is negetive. My doctor thinks I am just fat. Well I know I'm fat. But what about all the other stuff? I don't know what to do next.

Right now I just want to forget everything I have learned about Cushings. It would be nice to go back and just be fat.

I could really use support right now. HELP!!! Diane
