Its been a while since I posted to my blog and so, so much has happened. I had my radiotherapy and had no real side effects apart from a bit of soreness. I have seen a remarkable improvement in my general health and well being. I have lost 2 stone in weight to date since August last year and I feel great. I am wearing smaller clothes and can actually start shopping in normal stores as I have hit that top end of the clothes size. Fabulous - still a long, long way to go, around 5 stone still to lose but I don;t care - I feel great! I have had so many lovely comments from people and it has boosted my self esteem and confidence, something I have lacked for a very long time.

 

And I got a new job....!!!!!!

 

Its back at my old firm but its so great to see all my old friends that I haven;t seen for years. I spent years worrying what people thought and thought people would shun me but I was so wrong and I deeply regret all of those lost years, but Cushings brings such solitude and sadness and makes you feel so inferior and worthless. It is so sad, but I am so glad I have been able to rise above it and move forward. I know I have such a long way to go before I am back to what I consider to be 'normal' but I know I am making good steps and as Sue used to say...'baby steps'...each small step brings with it something new and rewarding and I am ready for the pitfalls. Nothing can be worse than what I have been through so it is a challenge to me now.

 

I have some testing coming up in April, synacthen and glucogen and I see the oncologist for the first time after the radiotherapy -I am so hoping its all good as I just don't want anything to spoil it right now and I have had too much experience that it does...

 

I am also loving our Cush art class. It has helped to boost my confidence by giving me a hobby and something to look forward to - a big thanks goes to Judy and all of the classmates for perservering and making it so special.

 

Well that's it for me for now...more later
