July 18, 2005This should be long because its my first entry but its late and i've already violated one rule during this experiment which is to go to bed early. I just wanted to get started since im behind schedule. I was diagnosed with cushings disease 4 years ago. A tumor in my pituary gland is what they said. It took about 3 month to be diagnosed which is very fortunate for me. I know for many it took months if not years. I hope that is beginning to change. With more media coverage and knowledge of cushings disease, this should be changing. But I digress. I had transphenoidal surgery at UVA performed by Dr. Edward Laws, (quite charming and handsome doctor), however that was not enough to cure me. I then had gamma knife radiation at UVA performed by Dr. Steiner. Still not cured. Thats when I decided to take matter into my own hands. I've always been a proponent of alternative medicine. In fact, if it wasn't for my vanity, i probably would have opted to go that route in the beginning. Probably would have been cured and saved lots of money. Check in tomorrow as the saga continues.
