Long overdue Cushing’s update

Wow well I knew I'd been meaning to blog for a while and kept forgetting but this takes the biscuit! So here we are, a long overdue follow up to what has happened since my initial endocrinologist visit. As mentioned in the last post I have definitely declined as far as my symptoms go. They're … Continue reading Long overdue Cushing’s update

Slowly losing my mind

This isn't going to be a cheerful post, you've been warned. My potential Cushing's diagnosis is slowly moving along. I met up with an endocrinologist this week for the first time; he's not the specialist that I was referred to but is part of his team and it was an encouraging first appointment. He didn't … Continue reading Slowly losing my mind

I actually quite like this one but it's still true to my point. No, we don't always recover. If I don't get back to 100% now I'll feel like an even bigger failure!

I've always had a love … Continue reading Clocking in

It's even more fun when your hormone system is actually out of wack.Many people with hormone-related issues such as Cushing's or thyroid … Continue reading No rhyme nor reason

Diagnostic testing

I've had my referral come through for the endocrinologist; 18th September. It seems an age away. In the meantime I'm still waiting on the results for previous tests I've had. I spoke to my GP this week as she'd obviously thought the urine tests would be back but they're not unfortunately so I'm waiting until … Continue reading Diagnostic testing

Why blog?

I sometimes wonder why I blog and it's nice to reflect on the reasons. They change from time to time which I think is a good thing; it keeps it fresh and stops me getting bored. I'm an odd mix of creativity and science. I love logic and hard reasoning but also enjoy creating things … Continue reading Why blog?
