  1. my therapist who is a mental health psychiatric nurse practioner has told me many times that excess cortisol is like washing the brain in battery acid. this is why just plain old stress let alone cushings causes all kinds of emotional problems. it has taken me 3 years and anti depressants to restore some chemical balance in my brain and i will never know what is permanent. in kids who are absused and have had prolonged excess stress reations in addition to elevated cortisol they have found certain parts of the brain that help moderate emotions are smaller than in other brains. i will never doubt that emotions are very much the biochemical state of the brain. kathyz

  3. Thanks for posting this MaryO. I have been getting calls from friends here in Portalnd asking me if I saw the article. It was a very prominant piece begining on the front page of the Living Section of the Oregonian. The article also contained an information insert listing most of the major symptoms of Cushings. I think our friends did a really nice job. It not only is helpful for any Cusings patients but potential patients also. It also educates the people of Orgeon on another area of great work being done a Oregon. Thank you Karen, Jamie and Lisa. A thank you also to Dr. Ludlam for taking the time to explain Cushings to the press. Kathy Z
