My life as a mom and as the parent of a child with Cushing's Disease
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
I am thankful to have been accepted into the "Cushie Community". As a mom of a child with Cushing's I don't quite fit in. I don't know what it feels like to live in a body with Cushing's. I know it's not the same, to be on the outside looking in. I hope my empathy is felt. I hope my knowledge is helpful. I worry that I will be misunderstood or dismissed as someone who truly doesn't know what it's like to suffer this terrible disease.
