Post #1: Chronic Pain and Incertainty

Cushies are tormented as we struggle with the medical community and face our own bodies and changing identities every day.  It just shouldn't be this way. 

I can not think of a more perfect way to kick off Cushing's Awareness Month than with this entry by author Toni Bernard.

Really. There is just nothing left to say on this issue. Toni has said it all.

How Chronic Pain and Illness Fan the Flames of Uncertainty

Cushing's Awareness Month

Here we are again! April is here.
One of my favorite times of the year.

Although many celebrate one day of Cushing's awareness centered upon Harvey Cushing's birthday on April 8th, it is my goal to see April celebrated as Cushing's Awareness Month.

We need the chance to educate and advocate.

We need the support of those who surround us every day.

We need to reach all of the undiagnosed souls seeking answers in uncertain times.

We need the chance to stand up as survivors, hold hands, and say, Yes! We made it through another year.

April has become a very important time of the year for me, as a Cushing's survivor, and I hope you enjoy what's pops up this month. It will be a surprise to all of us, since even I don't know what I will say in 30 posts in April. ;)

Stick around. It will be fun for all of us.
