Lou – age 33 – British
Self diagnosed after 6 years of cushings & UK doctors who dismissed me as depressed & unluckily unhealthy.
Finally on complete hormone replacement 20 months later (6/7 drugs) had to fight for some (some legitimate & some ludicrous reasons), still facing uninformed doctors & so called ‘specialists’ every week, who misdiagnose conditions or make wrong assumptions, so am now well studied in general medicine & endocrinology myself, particularly with the post illness complications & resulting conditions from cushings damage & pituitary loss. This helps keep an eye on things albeit tiring studying while sick.
Happy to get involved when asked, or answer any personal questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
