Cushing's awareness bands for april 8

Recommended Posts

i mentioned many times, over the past few weeks, about cushing's awareness bands to my family. whenever i do, however, they kind of just go "hm" or act like they didn't hear me. they know what i'm dealing with is terrible, and they are all worried and scared about how sick i am. i don't understand why they don't want to support me, however, by wearing cushing's bands or even cushing's pins from other sites (i forget where i saw those). my husband would wear one if i asked him directly (he'd do anything for me) but he usually doesn't wear accessories cuz he thinks they're uncomfortable.

 

my parents and sister, on the other hand, have worn the yellow cancer bracelets and pink bracelets for breast cancer (my mom lost a friend to breast cancer and we lost my aunt through marriage to it also). they have many breast cancer items (ribbons, pins, stuffed animals). so it's not like they don't wear things like that. i just don't understand why cushing's doesn't seem serious enough to support through bands. it hurts me a great deal (amongst other things).

 

so i guess what made me think about this and what made me write about this is how april 8 is coming up. i asked my husband why he thinks they won't wear the bands and he says he doesn't know, but that they're just being jerks probably.

 

so anyway, do you guys wear the bands? do you have family or friends that do in support of you? if so, how did they acquire the bands? did you buy them and give them out? did they do it on their own? how did you inform them of them?

 

thanks. i hope i don't seem too sensitive, it's just what the whole thing symbolizes to me, i guess.

My family (husband and grad-school son0 wears the bands :huh:

 

There's a link at the top of the page to them, where it says Awareness bands or http://www.cushings-interactive.com/oscommerce2/

 

The current ones are light blue with yellow debossed print that says ♥ Cushing's Awareness ♥ on the front and It's About Time! on the back.

I wear my blue one daily and my husband wears his yellow one daily. I gave one to my mom but I don't know if she wears it a lot (I suspect not) and to some friends but not sure they wear it as I don't see much of them right now.

MaryO, the new blue ones are so pretty! My daughters wanted one, each, and I ordered them each one. I love them. I'm going to order some more, soon. There are several folks who want one. Thank you!

 

Hugs!

well, after casually telling my hubby about this, he said he had no idea how important this was to me. he then bought a bunch of bands and said he was meaning to buy them to wear, anyway. he also got some for family members, and he's going to give them to them.

 

i'm very blessed to have such a caring, amazing man :blush:
