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.

Plastic Surgery

When I was 17, I thought about getting a breast reduction.  I was still pretty thin at this point and it bothered me to by bigger clothes just to fit my bust.  I had a hard time exercising and always had back pain and grooves in my shoulders where my bra straps sat. I had a few consults with different plastic surgeons and ended up scheduling surgery for the week before my high school graduation.  I ended up "chickening out" because I didn't want the surgery to have any impact on my graduation, and I hadn't had any major surgeries before.  I started gaining weight due to Cushing's shortly after, so it worked out for the best in the end.

Now, my breast size has gone way down since I've lost weight, and even though they are still bigger than average, they don't get in my way as much and are more proportional to my body. These days, my plastic surgery dream is to have a tummy tuck.  I have a lot of excess skin on my body, especially on my belly, and in a drea…

Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Day 9

The only potentially permanent treatment for Cushing's is surgery.  Whether you have a pituitary tumor, adrenal tumor, or ectopic source of ACTH, most often, you will eventually need surgery.

For me, the first step was a pituitary surgery to try to remove the tumor in my pituitary gland. They went through my nose to access the pituitary gland, which means you have no visible scars after.
I was very nervous heading into the surgery, but didn't have much time to dwell on it, as my surgery was scheduled about a week after my IPSS.  I talked to a lot of people before, about their experiences, and heard vastly different stories from each person.
The only thing I remember from before my surgery was being rolled down what looked like a basement hallway (all concrete), while passing maybe 30 operating rooms.  I saw patients in the hallways on stretchers waiting for surgery, I saw into the small windows in the doors to operating rooms, it was a very scary experience.  Obviously, not ev…

Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Day 4

I have often said, I wish I had cancer instead.  Most people would not understand this sentiment, why in the world would you wish for such a horrible disease?  
It is another common thread tying people with chronic illness together. If my disease was cancer, everyone would know what it was.  I wouldn't be questioned by my boss when I called in sick.  My friends and family would be more supportive.  My doctors wouldn't question my symptoms.
Maybe my life would be easier.
But, maybe this would not be true.  I am not looking to find out.  Chronic illness is lonely.  It seems, from the outside, that cancer is not.  Most people know someone with cancer.  Most people know what cancer involves.  Endless appointments, surgeries, maybe even chemotherapy or radiation.  Cancer is life threatening. Did you know that a lot of chronic illnesses involve all of the same things?  
With Cushing's, a lot of people have multiple surgeries.  I have had 3 directly related to Cushing's, and…
