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.

You feel an obligation and put your own needs aside; sometimes this is a good thing but sometimes you … Continue reading Take time for yourself

Thoughts on my first week of the reset

I don't intend to do a weekly update but I thought I might as well this first week and whenever I do feel I have something to chat about. So how have I done? Pretty well I think. I definitely needed a new set of goals, smaller and more manageable to help get my head … Continue reading Thoughts on my first week of the reset
