5 Things I'm Looking Forward To

  • Warmer weather, which is hopefully on it's way to the northeast.  I can't wait to wear dresses without leggings, and sandals!

  • Martha's Vineyard vacation this summer with friends, as always.  One of my favorite weekends of the year!  This year, we are going for a week!

  • Half hour long phone calls with a certain friend that never fail to cheer me up.

  • Volunteering for an organization that I've been super involved with in the past, but have taken a few years off.  I'm getting back into it this year by volunteering at the 3 day conference!  I am a little worried that it will be too physically taxing, but I want to try. 

  • Dating?  Maybe?  I'm out there on all the dating apps apps, and tried a month of Match.com...I haven't had much luck but we'll see what happens.

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.
