  1. I think that is a savings of almost $4.00/pc. I paid $20.99 for one novelty pill box. It arrived yesterday, and it's very cute, smaller than I thought it would be. It does not take up much space in my handbag. I like that. It also came with a black suede pocket into which I have put it for protection.
  2. Robin, thanks for putting the link on our site. You know me when it comes to computers.... I ordered the zebra stripes one for myself. I think I will use one compartment for Cortef, the other for ddavp, and the last one for? maybe dhea. I am still looking for a monthly pill box and something red "emergency" looking for the Solu-Cortef in my purse. I am carrying the Solu-Cortef in a zip-lock bag. It is not attractive and might never be found when I need it. If you have any ideas where I could find these, please let me know. I am glad you all like the boxes. They also have jewelry for the emergency Cortef dose, but I have one on my key-chain already. PeeQueen
  3. I just ordered this very cute pill box for in my purse. Maybe Mary can find out whether there'd be a discount if more of these boxes were bought. The company's name is: forgettingthepill.com The box I ordered is silver and it says "Hormonally Challenged". I thought that was very fitting, no? PeeQueen
  4. Since I am also a member of the Addison's Boards in the UK I just received their Newsletter with some very interesting information for us who take Hydrocortisone. Check out this website for more information on a new hydrocortisone product that is only taken once a day and mimics the natural cortisol circadian rhythm. I am very very excited about this development. It is strange but my endos all think that I should be doing wonderfully, but I am usually not feeling all that well. It has been almost 2 years since surgery and I have had about 3 good months. When I read on the above website that people replacing cortisol with HC have side effects, all of the listed ones seemed to be true for me. It talks about morning tiredness, chronic fatigue, lack of energy, depression, anxiety, and impaired libido. Since last week's AI episode I have really not felt well, and I am afraid that my fatigue is going to end in another crisis. I feel that I am constantly balancing my levels that never seem to be just right, therefore I don't feel well. There is another Swedish pharmaceutical company that is also developing a new drug called: DuoCort. I have not checked out their website, but I am sure their dual-release tablets are also very promising. Maybe this is not new information for you all, but I thought I would post it in case you had not heard of it before. PeeQueen
  5. Yep, I bought one of their shirts two years ago before going in for surgery. I have the babydoll shaped one with tiny sleeves and not baggy. My daughter got the Cushing's Support Staff one.
  6. Thanks for the article. It makes me feel better that although I am now panhypopituitary, at least I have beat the tumor. PeeQueen
  7. What kind of poster, Mary? I am planning on raising awareness for Cushing's at my Nursing School. It would be really nice to have a big poster. I am also personally interested in the license plate. Did you see the phrases I posted for bumperstickers? What do you think?
  8. My husband has come up with these ideas for bumper stickers. Cushing's-A Tumor that's the Pits! That Humpback's Not a Cushion! It's Cushing's Disease! A Humpback? Please! I have Cushing's Disease! A Face like a Full Moon? As about Cushing's real soon! Heart Race? Moon Face? Gained Weight out of Place? Find out about Cushing's Disease! Please send any comments or suggestions!
  9. I like it! But, it would be for a Tshirt, right? (Front and Back)? I just ordered the ribbon magnet for seven Dollars.
  10. It would be good if we had several layouts and then vote for the best one. I personally don't like the "fat" one, because people might think it's another diet or exercise program. I do like the one Mertie suggested. But I am sure there will be more ideas coming from others.
  11. I would like to put a sticker on my van that would raise awareness for Cushings in people driving behind me. Somewhere I once saw a T-Shirt that said something about: Sex starts in the Pituitary. And then on the other side something with Cushings. I did not buy it, because it was too daring to wear here. But we have lots of people on the boards that could come up with a design and a logo that we'd all like. I prefer a sticker over wearing a plastic bracelet. And: I could buy several and send them to friends/family all over the world to stick on their cars.
  12. I have heard that Cushings can affect anyone and it is found all over the world. But there are (I think I read this somewhere) 5:1 more women affected by it. I am wondering why this would be so. Is this due to our hormones? Also, do we have any members that are not caucasian on the boards? This would also really interest me. Since I am a nursing student, I find there are many conditions and disease that affect certain ethnical groups more than others. Some drugs work better with the elderly and African Americans, while they do not work in caucasians. Any ideas?
  13. Hello Mary! I am very interested in the bumper sticker and possible the hooded sweater. Do you have a picture of either? Heike.
