And It's About Time There Was Some Support For Cushing's!
hi my names maggie. im 18 years old and im trying to get diagnosed with cushings. ive been sick for about a year and a half, ever since i got mono last january. ive gained 60 (half my body weight!) and ive gotten so tired that i missed 7 months of my senior year. i sleep all the time, but most of the time not at night. i have a lot of cushings symptoms, and i have a pituitary tumor.
ive been to a lot of doctors, close to where i live, in philadelphia, my mom and i even went to california to see an encocrinologist. hes been very helpful but at the same time sort of slow about helping me. ive had numerous tests done but i dont have enough high cortisols to confirm that i need surgery. im hoping to be better by the end of august (almost 3 months) so i can start college. i know a year and a half isnt long to be suffering with this disease. all the people whove had this longer i admire u so much for your patience, but i still hate it.
im still waiting and still hoping.
