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!

It is run by a sufferer, not anyone medically trained but she has done so much research to understand her own illness that it is a great resource. Obviously it can't replace true medical information but it definitely helps. … Continue reading Cushing’s Symptoms

A long and winding road

It's time to explain why I'm not posting much and why you'll probably get a bit fed up if you followed this blog for nail art and reviews. I do still fully intend to keep up with the other sections but it's something that will fall by the wayside somewhat and posts will probably remain … Continue reading A long and winding road

My journey with Factor V so far

This is a very long overdue post. As in about 8 months overdue, oops! I finally found out last November what the cause of my blood clot was. I have Factor V. It was quite¬† a long, drawn out process to find out the cause but I'm so glad now that I know. I finished … Continue reading My journey with Factor V so far
