Happy Weekend!


Weekends are my favorite.  I get to sleep late, take a break from work and appointments, and spend time with friends and family.  Last night, I got to see some friends at a fundraiser for an organization that has given me my greatest support system and the best friends I could ever ask for. 

I have nothing planned for today, I just want to catch up on some TV shows.  My mom is away this weekend, so I am going to order pizza tonight and just hang out, maybe watch a movie. I may even go for a swim at the gym.  The pool is in a bubble now, but I can't wait for them to take the bubble down so I can swim in the sun!

What is your favorite thing to do on weekends?  Are you the kind of person that likes to rest and take it easy on the weekends or cram in as much as you can to stay busy?

Here are a few things to check out over the weekend:

Lauren's Hope for the cutest medical alert bracelets ever - everyone always comments on mine and asks where I got it!  




TouchOfModern for the coolest modern products including cases for your electronics, lighting, artwork, etc.  You have to use an email to register but you are not forced to buy.  

Scandal is my new favorite TV show.  You can find episodes on Netflix from Season 1 and on Hulu or ABC for the current season.

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…

Cushing's Awareness Day

Over the past 8 years, I have spent a few Aprils blogging every day for Cushing's awareness.  I will not be blogging daily this year, but don't want to let the month go by without spreading some awareness!


April 8th is Cushing's Awareness Day because it is Harvey Cushing's Birthday.  Harvey Cushing is the father of modern neurosurgery, and he also was the first to discover Cushing's Disease in one of his patients.  You can see a drawing of his patient (Minnie G) in many text book articles about Cushing's.

Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Day 8 - Happy Birthday Harvey Cushing!!!

Today is Harvey Cushing's Birthday, therefore, today is Cushing's Awareness Day.

To learn more about Cushing's, watch this video made by an endocrinologist.
