Only 8 days until the Cushing’s Awareness Challenge 2018 begins. At night, when I’m supposed to be sleeping, ideas for posts keep swarming through my head. Sometimes, they form into fully-written posts. Then, when I wake up, the posts are gone.
I plan to follow the suggestions to some extent and have a few ideas of my own. Over the years, I’ve posted lots on several blogs but I don’t know if I can get 30 days of Cushing’s stuff together…again! This is the eighth year of the Cushing’s Awareness Challenge.
The list of bloggers is on the right side and is constantly updated as new URLs come in.
If you want to join us, it’s not too late. Directions and suggestions for posts can be found here: https://cushieblogger.com/2018/03/11/time-to-sign-up-for-the-cushings-awareness-challenge-2018/
If you have ideas for what you’d like to read about (Cushing’s related, of course), please feel free to put it in the comments area.
First – write mostly about Cushing’s 🙂
Then add one of these images to your blog:
Transparent images, same directions:
If your blog wants a URL instead of the image, that URL is http://www.cushings-help.com/blog/cushblogsmall.png
If your blog wants you to upload an image from your desktop, right-click on one of the above images above and choose “save-as”. Remember where you saved it to!
In all cases, the URL for the site is http://www.cushings-help.com
I plan to do the Cushing’s Awareness Challenge again. Last year’s info is here: https://cushieblogger.com/2017/03/08/time-to-sign-up-for-the-cushings-awareness-challenge-2017/
The original page is getting very slow loading, so I’ve moved my own posts to this newer blog.
As always, anyone who wants to join me can share their blog URL with me and I’ll add it to the links on the right side, so whenever a new post comes up, it will show up automatically.
If the blogs are on WordPress, I try to reblog them all to get even more exposure on the blog, on Twitter and on Facebook at Cushings Help Organization, Inc. If you have photos, and you give me permission, I’ll add them to the Pinterest page for Cushing’s Help.
We’re sharing the story of Annie, who was treated at Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development for Cushing Syndrome.

Zoe shares her experience of living with Cushing’s disease, a rare condition that develops when your body produces too much of the hormone cortisol.
The commonest cause of spontaneous Cushing’s disease is a small benign tumour in the pituitary gland. Symptoms usually develop gradually and so the diagnosis may not be clear for some time.
Watch and share Zoe’s story to raise awareness of this rare condition.
