Psychics

Have you ever been to a psychic?  I have always wanted to but didn't want to go alone.  I think especially in a situation like mine, where things have been less than awesome for the last 10 years, that something like this, true or not, would be helpful to me.  Maybe it would help me look forward to the future, instead of bracing for the next big thing.  Maybe I would get some validation about what has happened and why.

Tonight, I went to a gathering at my cousin's house, and we had a psychic come to speak to each of us.
She told me that I don't have a fake bone in my body and that no one has to ever analyze anything about me, I'm an open book to others, but I analyze everything.  She asked why I wasn't a nurse of a doctor, and told me I had probably already met the person who I will marry someday.  She mentioned my grandparents that have died, and one who I never had a chance to meet.  She talked about my best friend and how it was a very unique relationship (anyone who knows us knows that!)  She mentioned my health briefly, but didn't pick up on the serious issues I've had over the last few years, but she did mention that it's probably going to be easier from here on out.   I'm not sure what to believe but I want to believe all of it!  Some of it was absolutely true, as she mentioned things that have already happened.  Some things I want to believe, but how would I know if they were true?

What do you think about psychics?  Would you ever go to one?  Overall, I think it was a good experience, true or not true, and would probably do it again someday.

  1. Years ago for an advertising class assignment I was assigned to write an ad for a psychic. As part of the assignment she had to tell my fortune and read "my cards." She told me that I would become very ill in the middle of my life but that I would recover--and that my life would be totally changed. Well I forgot all about that prediction but it happened that I did indeed lose many years to Cushing's before I was diagnosed and now my life is completely different as far as what I value, etc. So I think maybe there is something to psychics--that some of them are blessed with some kind of gift of seeing the future. Interesting question for sure.

Talk About the Sh*t you Don't Want to Talk About

I haven't updated this blog in a very long time.  I actually deleted a ton of posts while I was applying for social security disability. I posted about Cushing's Awareness day earlier this week on facebook, so I guess I'm in a sharing mood.

Anyway, for anyone who even reads this, I was watching a documentary on Netflix about a teenager with anorexia and mental illness who found meaning in her life through yoga. (It's called I Am Maris). It's kind of the reason for this post.

To start - let's go back to June 2018. My grandmother died.  She lived a wonderful long life, but it was especially hard on me.  She was the reason I got out of bed every day, my best friend, and so much more. I actually don't remember how I got through most of the summer.

In the span of two weeks at the end of August, my mom turned 60, we went on a family vacation to the vineyard, my best friend got married, and I wanted to kill myself.  Yeah, you read that right. The day after return…

The Challenges of Getting a Diagnosis

I have been asked about this so many times, and talk about it a lot, whenever someone asks me about Cushing's.  So many people have the same experience - KNOWING you have Cushing's, and seeing 5, 10, 20, or more doctors over the course of many years before you officially have a diagnosis.  I would say this is one of the most common links I have with other "Cushies".  We all fought for a diagnosis, heard we were just fat and depressed, waited with hope after every test, until a day came when one test came back high, or a brain MRI showed a tumor in the pituitary gland.

I think the reason I haven't written about it is because it's one of the hardest things to sit down and spend time on.  It's painful, and of course, I can't help but wonder what my life might be like today if I was diagnosed sooner.  Would I have needed an adrenalectomy?  Or for that matter, a second pituitary surgery? Would I have as many health issues after Cushing's?  It's ha…

Keeping in Touch

I have found it harder and harder to keep in touch with friends lately. I feel like it should be the opposite, with these smartphones in our hands 24/7, but I just feel more isolated.

A big part of the problem it is that I live at least an hour away from most of my friends, if not more.  There's not a lot of friends that I can call last minute to say "Hey, want to do something?".  Any activity takes more planning, more effort on both sides.  I often hesitate to plan something too far in advance because I'm worried I might have to cancel if I don't feel up to it.

I tend to plan more group events where I have the control, like yearly trips to Martha's Vineyard (which is so so soon!), where I usually have my own car, and it tends to be a slower paced weekend.  I won't inconvenience anyone when I need to take a break.

I need to make more of an effort, I know that.  And if I cancel on you once or twice, don't take it personally.  It's probably just be…
