Hi I’m Becky a 34 year old wife, mother of twins and teacher.

I’m having surgery to remove a pituitary tumor this week and am told it will really help to alleviate the Cushings symptoms I’ve had for years!!  I wish I had had this diagnosis sooner but I know I’m lucky to have it now as I had planned on bariatric surgery as my last hope.

When the headaches became too much to handle and my face went numb I was given an MRI and now I know the truth.

I’m new to this, scared yet hopeful.  I’m determined to get control over this but still, this is hard for me.
