⁉️ Can You Help? Adderall and Cushings

Recently posted on the message boards at http://cushings.invisionzone.com/topic/54332-adderall-and-cushings/

I was recently diagnosed by the NIH with Cushings and Adrenal hyperplasia due to a tumor in my adrenals.  I have taken Adderall for a few years now for what I thought was ADD.  Can Adderall increase cortisol levels since it is a stimulant?

If you will respond here or in the comments, I will post your answer to the boards.

😎 Letter to Cushies

Originally posted on Facebook​​​​​​​

To all my Cushie friends who are still dealing with this horrible disease, keep fighting, don’t ever give up, you will get better.  I told a very close friend of mine the other day, if I had the power I would heal everyone you today.  Cushing’s is a horrible disease, and unless you have been through it there is no way anyone could ever understand it.

After a year and a half  since my BLA and I am the healthiest, happiest person I have been in a very long time.  I am working out with a personal trainer once a week because I am determined to regain the strength I lost due to having Cushing’s for six very long years.   I have a long way to go and it is not going to happen overnight but it will happen.

I live each day to the absolute fullest and enjoy every minute of every day, I am so grateful to have made it through to the other side, not without some emotional and physical scars, but I made it none the less.

I think about and pray for all of you every day because without your knowledge and support I don’t know that I would have made it.

To those of you who are still on the boards please feel free to share this post and my story to everyone there.  I am sorry I don’t go on the boards any more, but as I said I didn’t make through without some emotional scars.

I love you all, god bless and be good to yourself always.

⚠️ Message Board Issues :(

The Message Boards are currently offline. From Tech Support…

Hello,  I apologize here for the trouble, there seem to be some issues with your site after our move to the new cloud yesterday, we have our team looking into these issues now and will get back with you as soon as we can. Currently, the site is not loading the index files properly, in which we are addressing.

We will be back with you as soon as we have this corrected.

Thank you

⚠️ Yet Another Message Board Upgrade

Another message board upgrade happening right now. I’m not sure how long it will take (or what cosmetic changes need to be done afterwards.

At this moment, the links on the board to the front page are not working.  Use this instead: http://cushings.invisionzone.com/index.php?

Also, if you use Activity Streams, they’re not working, either.  I get a long error message.  The boards are only 86.62% complete as I write this.  Hopefully, the Activity Streams will fix themselves when it gets to 100%.

If you see any other issues I should be watching for – and maybe correct later – please let me know.

Patience, please!

FWIW – I see we have the Twitter and Facebook share boxes back. Even if you share from the boards, people on these other services will not be able to see anything other than the beginning snippet unless they are board members and they log in.

 

🖥 Cushing’s Slideshow

Cushing’s Help message board member sherryc presented this PowerPoint at pioneer Pacific College. It took a lot of work with her failing memory but she did It! She wanted to get the word out about Cushing’s and her journey with this awful disease.
