----- Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Day 4
By MaryO

Permalink
I have often said, I wish I had cancer instead.  Most people would not understand this sentiment, why in the world would you wish for such a horrible disease?     It is another common thread tying people with chronic illness together. If my disease was cancer, everyone would know what it was.  I wouldn't be questioned by my boss when I called in sick.  My friends and family would be more supportive.  My doctors wouldn't question my symptoms.   Maybe my life would be easier.   Read more at http://www.lifewithcushings.com/2017/04/cushings-awareness-challenge-day-4.html
