Yesterday was Cushing's Awareness Day. Never heard of it? Not surprising. Its not covered in the corporate media and as Cushing's is relatively unknown, so is its awareness day. Kind of ironic, right? As we find more and more about this disease, doctors are discovering that it is much more common than once thought. 1/5 the population, 20%, are said to have a pituitary tumor. That cant be normal. But the doctors of this country who are not researchers are going by what they were taught in school: It cant be a platypus because they are to rare! If you are reading this and you think you have ANY of the symptoms of Cushing's, please see a couple of doctors. And pass along our cause to others. The more we talk about this, the more we all will know. And knowing is half the battle.
