  1. Thanks for wanting to be Cushie Buddies...I pray that you are going to learn a lot here. I cannot tell you how much this Board has helped me get through this very difficult year. Take care. Lisa in Alabama

  2. Doesn't Susan seem like the best lady ever! I wish I lived close enough to her to be her "in person" Cushie BFF!

  3. You are one of my favorite people on these boards...so uplifting, supportive and full of wonderful wisdom and advice...thank you!

    FYI: If you are computer illiterate/insufficient, and if this intimidates you- THEN, Go to the: "Pinned Signature" topic/post. Follow POST #19 (by Susan)...she has step by step directions on exactly how to do this! It took me two times to do it, but, if I can do it, so can you! Good luck... Lisa in Alabama

    Backpacks, Messenger Bags and stuff

    Mary, Would love to buy XL mens Boxer Shorts for my husband...he is my main caregiver. My daughter (age 15) would love 'sleep' pants with/ "Cush" on the rear... Not TUSH... ha/ha! Actually, I would wear those too, but I would need an XL or an XXL. I wear ballcaps (made for women) daily because my hair is getting so thin, so, the black cap would be of daily use for me! I would also love a grey hooded sweatshirt that looks like a college shirt... "CUSHINGS" nothing else... no bright colors. Just understated royal blue wording maybe. Hope this helps... but, I am really interested/excited. Love and blessings, Lisa

    sore, tight chest - anyone get this?

    I also get a strange feeling in my chest. When I am lying down I feel like there is a huge, lead weight lying across my chest. I feel like it is pushing me into the mattress. I have always thought that was when my Cortisol was high. I have a harder time breathing when this happens. I find myself concentrating on this heavy feeling until I make myself change positions. After moving my body the feeling subsides. Hope this helps and that you are healed soon!

    I will be 40 this summer... Anyway, I was just DIAGNOSED a couple of weeks ago and you would have thought that I won the lottery! Finally!!! I was right all along, and I knew I could not be getting this fat, exhausted, depressed, hairy, ugly, moley, bruised up, never sleeping, hair falling out, biggest pregnant belly you've ever seen with thin legs....I told everybody I was sick... so, brain surgery on April 7th is the best day ever! Only we can understand this crazy feeling. Our families and friends are great, but, I really am tired of trying to convince them that something is really wrong with me. I am not lazy, I am not eating too much, I am not happy that I do not want to do the things I used to love and enjoy.... I am just tired, sore, weak, depressed, anxious and miserable. I cannot wait for this nightmare to end! I want to be my old self again... I know you do too... We all do. Thanks for this great blog. God bless you and I pray that you get the perfect solution to your Cushings... meds/surgery/etc... Lisa
