IPSS – a patient’s experience

Inferior Petrosal Sinus Sampling or IPSS is sometimes used to pinpoint where the source of Cushing's is coming from, generally when it's highly suspected to be a tumour on the pituitary gland. I was 'lucky' enough to have one of these a couple of days ago as my MRI for my pituitary came back clean … Continue reading IPSS – a patient’s experience

WoW characters – Alliance

Just a quick overview of my Alliance characters on World of Warcraft. Partly in case anyone is curious, more to remind me what each one has on them or I have planned for them.

The detail in the animation is incredible and beats games made this year (even if the overall graphics are old and blocky compared to … Continue reading Istaria characters

“Mid-life crisis”

I was looking back the other day on my new year posts from the start of 2018 and it made me laugh a little to … Continue reading “Mid-life crisis”

Rare disease day

28 February is Rare Disease Day so it's probably a good day for another update on my Cushing's. It's important to highlight rare diseases; yes they affect less people than the big, famous diseases such as cancer but they can be just as debilitating and life threatening, possibly more so because they don't get the … Continue reading Rare disease day
