HOW WOULD IT FEEL TO HAVE ADDISON'S: Wondering about life after a BLA

I have mentioned that I am facing a Cushing's reoccurrence. I have to make the difficult decision: try a second pituitary surgery or go straight to BLA, or bilateral adrenalectomy.

Fellow Cushie Gina posted Living with Addison's Disease: An Owner's Manual for Individuals with this Disease, and I wanted to share it. You may also download the owner's manual in pdf format, too.

I haven't read this yet, but I've downloaded it on my iPhone and plan to read it all! I will return and post about how this compares to the patients' experiences we read about on the Cushing's Help and Support message boards. Knowing what I know about Gina, I bet it will be a good read.
