Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

Addison's: Famous Addisonians

Sorry I didn't do an Addison's post last week.

This week's post is just a listing of famous Addisonians and links to more in depth stories about them.

I hope that it's inspirational to you that there are Addisonian's who have accomplished so much despite managing their disease. If a person with Addison's Disease can be president of the United States, WE CAN DO ANYTHING!!

Famous Addisonians (copied from Wikipedia)


  • Hubert Doggart, a cricketer and schoolmaster may have Addison's disease but there is not much information to back this up. (This Addisonian was NOT mentioned in Wikipedia.)
  • It's rumored that Paula Abdul also has adrenal insufficiency. Hear Paula's youtube.com confession. The talk about Addison's Disease starts at 2:45 into the clip.
For a great link to a story about JFK and Adrenal Disease.
