Sandie's Story...

I had Cushing's Syndrome in 1996.

It took 9 months to find out it was in the pituitary gland. They removed 90% of it. They found a liquid tumor and a solid tumor which were benign.

Now on New Years Eve I found out I have it back but I am not sure if it is in the same place. They are doing tests now to see. When I had it before, my husband was my supporter. He passed away July 31st 2001. I am so scared now because I was so dependant on him when I was sick. I have a 20 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. My daughter is trying to be support for me but it is asking a lot of her at her age and I can't get into a relationship with this and not knowing what is going to go on and the real bad weight gain.

All I do is cry because of being scared and no close people around me.
