To most people, I keep a happy face, as I love making people smile and laugh. It makes me happy too. But life is often hard and I have certainly struggled. The song “Life’s Not A Leisurely Bikeride” was written when I had undiagnosed Cushing’s Syndrome.
Was my Cushing’s suffering to alleviate the suffering of a loved one? Is there any reason for what I went through?
Living with a chronic illness can be challenging and disheartening. Heard of the Spoon Theory? Three months after my surgery to “cure” Cushing’s, I was thrust into a new chronic illness. I created the Crap Theory.
During recovery from Cushing’s, I struggled with letting in creativity without dealing with my anger. I didn’t want any beauty to come out of suffering. That’s not how it works.
A list of my personal Cushing’s symptoms to help anyone who is wondering, “Is this a Cushing’s? Everyone is different, but hope it helps!
