Fighting Cushing's with moxie is difficult. We have to surround ourselves with people who know what it's like and how to help us. One of the best Cushing's resources is our local, state, regional, and country groups on Facebook. Are you a member of yours?
Local groups are also a great resource to:
1) find a helpful doctor or who to avoid
2) Cushing's makes Cushies isolated and lonely. Meet local Cushies who empathize and understand.
3) create Cushing's awareness projects in your community
4) ask for help when ER docs aren't following protocol for treating adrenal insufficiency and adrenal crisis.
** BUILD YOUR SAFETY NET **
We have links to all known Cushing's groups below. Special thanks to Samantha B. for developing this project and helping to gather these links.
If you are already in your local groups, please help us guide our Cushie friends to these local groups when you see someone asking about doctors in the big Cushing's groups, like The Many Faces of Cushing's
You can help. We are in the business of saving lives, aren't we?
