I started this blog in 2007 with the intent of chronicling my training for the Vineman full triathlon (2 miles swimming, 100+ miles biking and a marathon) with Addison's. In the years since the Vineman, this blog had become a place for me to post pictures, rant about adrenal insufficiency, discuss exercise and ultrarunning, post pictures about birds and whine about my shoulder and various ailments. My life has changed and now I've basically devoted my life to helping improve the lives of people with adrenal insufficiency.
I've decided to make this blog about adrenal insufficiency only. My website www.adddisonssupport.com has been streamlined. The forum is still free and available to anyone who applies and writes one sentence in his or her "application". I am available for a fee as a consultant to help you get diagnosed, optimized or educated. I can also be hired to be an advocate who attends your doctor appointments with you virtually or in person. In the next couple of years, I hope to write a book or two (Thank you, Dave C for the kick in the pants) to help guide care of people with adrenal insufficiency. There are only a few experts who specialize in adrenal insufficiency, my hope is that you can become an expert on your diseases and help your physician become one as well so that you can live the best, healthiest life possible.
Thanks to everyone who followed "Training Because I Can!" to read about my running adventures, birds or just to hear me whine. I hope you enjoy "Addison's Support Advocacy Blog" in a different but more important way.
