Mini Vacation to MV

From Thursday to Monday, I was visiting my Aunt's house in Martha's Vineyard with a few friends.  I had a great time, and wanted to share some pictures with you!









We saw 2 sunsets, got a few items off MV bucket lists (backdoor donuts being one, and no, it's not as dirty as it sounds).  We went to the beach almost every day, and I got some great color by accident (I used some expired sunscreen).  I got to swim almost every day, one day we even swam way out to a sand bar, and back in.  A lot of exercise!  I even managed to sneak in some water aerobics exercises. All in all, it was a great trip.  The only thing I didn't do that I wanted to was pick up a black dog collar or leash for Huck, who is coming home on Saturday!  I expect my blog to be flooded with puppy pictures over the next few weeks!

2 Years Since my Adrenalectomy...would I do it again?

On September 2nd, 2010, I spent the day in one of the many operating rooms at MGH.  I had spent the night before talking and texting to friends and family, after seeing Wicked and going back to the hotel across the street from the hospital.  I cried a lot, because of the scary and fairly dangerous surgery ahead, because of the hope that this disease would FINALLY be behind me, and because of the long recovery ahead.  I woke up early and walked across the street with my mom, and my dad met us there.

The wait that morning was incredibly long, my 2 other surgeries in the 9 months prior had been very early and a pretty short wait.  I cried some more (no one should be surprised by this), and finally headed into the prep room.  I met with my surgeon one last time, and kissed my parents one last time.  As I waited in the cold, dark, cement hallway outside the numerous operating suites, a surgical resident marked the incision sites.  I knew there would be many small incisions, but having the…

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…
