Just done this the one photo was 2 weeks before my op 7 months ago the 2nd one is the day after my op and the 3rd one is today. 7 months on 7 stone lighter and much happier about myself if it hadn't be for me getting sepsis last year I could still look like picture one. I owe my life to the NHS and the QE . #cushingsdisease #raredisease #nhs #queenelizabethhospital

On Friday I took my usual blood test to see where my hormone levels were at, and over the weekend I got my results, which were NORMAL! Then, on Monday I got the okay from my doctor to begin tapering off of the Cortef! I prayed and I hoped and I fought! To say that I am happy is understatement, I’m ecstatic, thankful, BLESSED!
.
I know that the rest of my life will consist of MRIs, and I am learning to be okay with that. I’m also learning to find my faith again, something that I feel has helped in healing me emotionally. I am trying to take what happened and become a better, wholesome person because I refuse to let the negatives define who I am.
.
That being said, I am coming back full force! I will be returning to school this fall to complete my final year of the master’s program. I will walk down that stage, I will get my masters and I will succeed because I will not let this disease win.
.
So here’s a reminder that no matter what you’re going through, you can get through it! It may not be easy and it may take some time, but you have to stay strong! Have your good cry, wallow in your sorrow and then pick yourself up and continue on!
.
Lastly, I am who I am because of who I surround myself with. This last year has taught me what a true friend is, what family is, what LOVE is. You never know who’s really there for you until sh*t hits the fan, but I am thankful for those who stuck around while I had my breakdowns, while I turned down invitations because I wasn’t feeling well, while I learned to find myself again. You all know who you are, and I LOVE YOU! 💕 .

Surgery recovery means having to take salt baths cause I now have the joints of an 80 year old and moving has become painful. I feel like Yertle the Turtle. #welp #oldmaid #cushingsdisease #itstoohotforthis #portland

Happy #tot #furiends ! A bit of some bummer news today: I have been diagnosed with Cushing's Disease and I can't take the traditional medicine used to help manage it due to extensive liver damage (from previous valley fever meds I took when I was a younger pup). My mama is researching holistic approaches to help treat this condition without putting additional stress on my liver. So far we've discovered Dandelion Root and Burdock may be helpful for the Cushing's and hepar sulph may help with the skin issues. Any other holistic approaches you can share would be wonderful. Including dosages, which are hard to come by since there is less regulation and more variation in strengths and potencies of these herbs and supplements. Also, please say a prayer for my mama 🙏 as this was hard news for her to hear. I'm her little monster man ❤️ #tuesday #tongueouttuesday #teethouttuesday #cushingsdisease #olddog #mamasboy #holistichealth #holisticmedicine

I'm alive! I made it through sugery with a few minor glitches but nothing serious. Bye adrenals - nice knowing ya! Surgery was Friday May 18, 2018, and I took this pic less than 24 hours later. A little puffy but looking good if I do say myself. I'm excited for better things to come - onward and upward. 😁

An update about Sal!
Sal had a dental cleaning and he was neutered. Dr. Babcock (Lynden Animal Clinic) let us know that Sal did really well for the surgery.
The bad news; Sal tested positive for Cushing's disease. Now we have two Cushing's dogs in our care! Crazy...
Sal has another test coming up soon to be sure he's on the right dose of medication, and we should know more about his condition then. Sal is doing great in his foster home with Dr. Babcock and his wife Robin. We're thankful Sal is in such great hands!
More updates coming soon!

Fluff head started acting weird today, doing a weird tongue out thing - opening and shutting her mouth, breathing funny, etc. This went on for about a half hour and then I called the vet and brought her in. That’s when we found this shredded plastic thing wrapped around the base of her tongue, almost down her throat. (Yes I checked her mouth but it was hidden way under the back of her tongue.) I don’t even know what the moral of this story is but maybe “don’t litter” is a good place to start. 💸😱

So true, I have gained so much weight and also a lot of swelling and inflammation from medications. With taking the medications there are pros and cons to it all, some are very harmful one is Depo-Provera for me. While on the medications I had many issues and ever since I got off I have had more problems. It’s sad that all information for meds are not provided to us until their are class action cases created. #endowarrior #endofighter #endometriosis #chronicillness #pelvicpain #depoprovera #lupron #endendo #invisibleillness #interstitialcystitis #weightgain #inflammation #cushingsdisease

My boss wouldn't give me an extra day off for surgery unless I completed my mandatories! Thanks bitch!

Gotta bargain to take care of myself..doesn't matter that I worked for years w a tumor in my head, almost blind, or throwing up in a garbage can for months at a time w my cyclic vomiting until collapsing and being brought to the er a million times..they don't notice that though!
I pride myself for holding a job for almost 14 years even though I can get full disability in a heart beat. I wish other people would see how hard it is to get up at 5am everyday and listen to a bunch of privileged fucks screaming at me to page the doctor for their stuffy noses! (I'm dead serious) and the only time I take off is when I'm hospitalized. I think Hawaii is in the near future! #rant

And I had to listen to drs saying "treat her like she's dead, because she's dead already" ...well, I'm back!

I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source. #loveyou #leo #forevermybaby #mixterrier #tb #rescuedogsofinstagram #cushingsdisease #petparent #youngsters

When you change your steroid dose then keep looking in the mirror to tell if the ‘moon face’ is back... #addisonsdiseaseproblems
They say no one knows your body like you do, but sometimes it’s so confusing!

My name is Major, I currently am suffering Cushing’s disease - Adrenal dependent. This type comes from a tumor in one of the glands that sit on top of my kidneys.

I started my treatment this week which can cause me to vomit and lose my appetite as well as having a really upset stomach and I REALLY REALLY LOVE MY FOOD!
This morning before my mum was leaving me.. she tried to feed me bacon as a treat but I turned her away... even Aunty @miraaykhoury looked worried... as this is not my usual behaviour. So mum called the vet for advise and had to stay home and not go with Aunty Miraay to #adonisathleticspenrith to make sure I was ok.

Hehehhe jokes on mum... my plan worked... I got her to stay home... and even got chicken and rice cooked and I ate ALLLLL OF IT! I’m actually fine

I don’t think she knows I was faking the whole sickness this morning...😂 YES THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.... fml 😂

Seraphina's diet is more important than ever before. She should do best on raw. Protein, a little fat and very little to no carbs. Have to give her the best shot we can! #bassethoundsofinstagram #bassets #seraphina #dogmom #houndmom #cushingsdisease #cushingsdog

Up yours cushings disease! Some before and afters to show just how much Kezzie has fought cushings disease. I am so so so SO bloody happy 😆❤️ #cushingsdisease#upyours#horsesofinstagram

✨Post surgery update✨ All tumor tissue has been successfully removed. Lab work has confirmed no residual cells left either. Good news is the neurosurgeons feel I won’t need any radiation treatment now or in the future (which was a HUGE deal for me). My cortisol level came crashing down which was good, however, it dropped so low that I’ll most likely have to supplement with steroids indefinitely. I’m hopeful that my body will be able to start to heal itself now, but it will be a slow process. I’ll be looking forward to the days when I’m able to post some before and after pictures so you can truly see how this disease takes over your entire body. Thank you to all who have prayed and checked in on me throughout my journey, it really means a lot. 💙🦓💛

First day home from the hospital and Greg’s at work. There was no way I was going to have the energy to shower, get ready and go to the grocery store today. I decided to try out @instacart services for a few things and it was great! This is probably not something I would use 100% of the time, but it’s a great option when you’re not feeling well enough to leave home. 🏡🛒🎉

Pet ER on a Friday night. Surprisingly quiet here. Lady’s been having some issues I suspected were related to coming off of Prednisone, despite doing a proper taper. It seems that her adrenal gland/other organ function is not as much the concern as inflammation in her throat/lungs returning in the absence of the Pred. We’ll check up with Dr. P next week and see if we need to do more blood tests, explore her Cushing’s symptoms further, or do a thyroid test. But for now, we’re adding albuterol (bronchodilator) to the mix to help her breathe, and to make sure the flixotide (steroid inhaler) is getting to the right places and doing its job.

Sigh. This dog, man. Can’t catch a break.

It’s been a ruff day. Just got home from the pet ER because I wasn’t feeling good today, and Mahm was worried it was related to steroid withdrawal. Well it kind of was, but I’m ok, and now I have TWO inhalers! But the new one should make the second one work even better, so hopefully I will be feeling better right quick! 🐾💕

Ethan recently REALLY got into wrestling after watching an Andre the Giant documentary (I have a diseased caused by pituitary tumors too, #cushingsdisease ) anyway, this morning he requested “one of those fake funny pictures (I) make with (him) winning against @johncena ...” 😳
Why are you fighting one of your favorites though, buddy? “Oh...because he’s from MA and he’s really funny, so I know it won’t hurt his feelings, I mean, sometimes I have to let the other guys win, but I bet it would hurt their feelings that I always can...” Whhhhhaaat? 😳😂 #OverConfidence (or not?) 😂 #WWE next #WWEMiniStar? 😂
