Trying not to get my hopes up!

Ok..so I am soooo excited right now!!!   There is a Cushing's Clinic in Rochester, NY (not too far from where I live) but I couldn't get in because my Endo hasn't done a complete Cushing's workup or MRI yet. (By the way, my Endo STILL wont return my calls to discuss my labs or the possiblity of ordering more tests and/or an MRI!)   Anyway....   My Cushie friend just emailed me and said that she just spoke with someone at the clinic (she goes there) and explained my situation and that I can

Give me strength....

Ok, so I finally got a message from the Endo on my machine at home saying that she has my lab results and thinks I have Metabolic Syndrome because my insulin level was elevated. (it was 103).

Anyone know a dood Divorse lawer?

I will probably need one before my journey is over.   My husband hates me, of this I am convinced. I don't know what else to say about it.   I know I sound crazy but I HOPE THEY FIND A TUMOR!!!

Feel yucky...

Ok so now I am feeling just awful!   Yester day at about 2pm, I started to feel so awful that I had to go home early from work. So at about 3pm I told my boss I didnt feel good and left. I could barely drive home, i felt like I was going to fall asleep at any second. I actually did for a second while stopped at a red light! (sorry to the guy behind me who had to beep at me) Anyway, I got home and layed down instantly on the couch and was asleep in seconds and ended up sleeping for 4 hours

"Patience is a virtue" (Of which I don't possess!)

So, I had some blood work done yesterday. I wish I knew how long it would take to get the results back! (I forgot to ask). These are the tests that my Endo ordered;   ? Comp Metabolic Panel ? Cortisol (this was a blood test) ? Hemoglobin A1C ? Insulin Serum ? Lipid Panel ? TSH & T4, Free ? Prolactin Serum ? FSH, Serum ? Estradol   Can I just complain for a minute? I did not feel that this Endo was listening to me and I am concerned that she so easily dismissed the po

Hello to any of you out there reading this. I never thought I would blog, but then again, never say never right?   Here is a quick background about me.   I am 41 years old, married and have 3 children who are the light of my life!   Aproximatelly 10 years ago after the birth of my 2nd daughter I went to my doctor because I kept getting sick all the time with respiratory infections and I was exhausted.
