No rhyme nor reason

We all know hormones are funny things even when behaving. Just look at the joys they wreak on women every month, throwing your mood one way this minute and the opposite the next. 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

Cushing’s Symptoms

I've found a great blog that has a lot of information around Cushing's and related issues.

Now is the perfect time to look back on what has happened, what I have learnt over the last year and look ahead to what 2018 can bring me. I was mainly inspired by the comments on this post over on … Continue reading New Year 2018 – Health and fitness

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!

“Illness” labels for the sake of labels

I walk to work and home most days which gives me a good hour and a half alone to just think and I come up with some very random topics sometimes. I'd like to think this is a time when I'm thinking of deep issues but most of the time I think of total rubbish! … Continue reading “Illness” labels for the sake of labels
