Member Spotlight - Elly

Where would I have been without our Addison's family during 2014?! 

Late July 2014, after a two week crisis ordeal, I finally received my diagnosis and
began Hydrocortisone steroid treatment. I was thin, weak and fragile and knew next
to nothing about my condition. Research began.. It soon became obvious that the
research was going to be a very personal study - we are all different..

Members here guided me through my ups and downs and were there for me whenever I had
doubts or even, when I had no idea that I was at the edge of becoming sick again -
when I was under replaced. There is still surgery to face in 2015 but I know that
even in hospital I'll have my family near - the wonders of portable email technology
that we have. 

The wonderful care I receive here continues to give me so much confidence; to accept
AD and to move forward, to stronger me, with more and more 'well' days.

So many have also felt that support from the family and from Jerry, who gives such
steadfast attention to each and all of us. 

Every new day is a gift. I keep reminding myself. Even a boring day, if well, is an
exceedingly good day!

Blessings to Jerry and to everyone here; and thank you!

I hope ALL have a very Happy and a very well New Year!

Elly
