" Mrs. Fight commented on Day Twenty, Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Cushie Info: So very true about it "being our only shot". After being learning I had Cushing's and then later learning all about it thanks to Cushing's Help and the support of my fellow "Cushies". My husband and I have often talked about how the doctors will have lots of patients and if they get it wrong and one of us slip through the cracks they have a new patient in the waiting room the next day. Our families are left wondering why we are no longer here. The value of knowing about what you have enables you to understand the process, communicate more effectively, participate with knowledge, ask questions, select options for care that are right for you, helps you to explain the condition to those you love or care about and it gives you some small (very small) sense of control over your life instead of being completely overpowered by the illness (any illness). As always thanks Mary O for giving all of us so much! "
