Kerry's Story...

I have been trying to convince my doctor for the last two and half years that something was wrong with me. I was having a gradual weight gain - it would have been more evident but I workout alot and am very active in sports - so it has been a gradual weight gain. Along with that was the emotional highs and lows. Still my doctor did not think it was Cushing's although the blood tests and 24hr urine samples showed extremely high cortisol levels. The fatique is what I am dealing with now and that seems to be the hardest.

I would love to talk to someone to help me cope with all that is happening and would love to know if I will ever get my body and energy levels back. I am awaiting to see a specialist now - and would like to know what to expect when I go there. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
