survive the journey: Blech...

Robin's Cushing's Summary in survive the journey: Blech...:
"...Thus, my life is a rollercoaster. And it is for most folks trying to figure out hormone replacements 'manually' instead of being on autopilot like normal people. Just one hormone replacement is not so bad. But factor in several, and it's a different story. Both GH and thyroid replacements need enough cortisol to work correctly. They can cause an already 'low' person to go into AI without sufficient cortisol replacement. Too much cortisol replacement, and one is back into being 'Cushie'. Working one-and-a-half jobs while riding it isn't easy.

Damned disease. I hate it. I used to love a good rollercoaster ride...."
