After 17 years as a personal trainer, I ran into health problems of my own, eventually having a name put to it..."Cushing's Syndrome," a rare adrenal disease. Tumors were growing on my adrenal glands over-producing Cortisol, your stress hormone. With 24/7 false fight-or-flight stress signals, the body goes haywire, producing horrific side effects such as weight gain around the midsection and back of neck, diabetes and blood sugar deregulation, inflammation, muscle deterioration, frail bones, hair loss, poor immunity, infertility, moonface, buffalo hump, extreme fatigue, brain fog, confusion, severe anxiety/depression and chemical imbalances. Being constantly diagnosed as "healthy" caused me to be told, when I was finally diagnosed correctly, that I had maybe five years to live. Misdiagnosis can be a killer.... It is now my personal mission and obligation to help those suffering from any chronic illness that steals your joy, and bring awareness to Endocrine Disorders. From my journey through Cushing's to Addison's to recovery-from triathlete to barely being able to dress myself and finally to recovering into a stronger person I never knew I was.
Endocrine imbalances can cause a whole host of physical and mental health problems. Yet, there is currently no definitive source of information that shows how hormones can bridge the gap between mental health and medical health modalities. This book is a bold crossover between the disciplines of medical and mental health, exploring the understanding that some of the major mental diagnoses belong not only to the field of mental health but also to that of medicine. Clients with depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, infertility, suicidality, anger and rage, fatigue, apathy, cognitive impairments, confusion, eating disorders, and poor body image may actually be presenting symptoms of hormonal disorders. Beginning with patient stories that display the devastating effects of misdiagnosis and the struggle to obtain the correct treatment, it provides members of the mental health profession with an authentic understanding of the impact of endocrine imbalances and disorders. With contributions from some of the world's most respected physicians, psychiatrists and psychotherapists, it provides accurate medical and psychological information about hormone imbalances and disorders, how to recognise the signs in patients, and how to treat them effectively. A comprehensive resource that provides all the information needed to identify endocrine disorders in patients successfully; this book will be of immeasurable value to clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, doctors, nurses and mental health clinicians.
Diagnosed with a rare disease that only affects between two and ten people per million, Marie Conley used emails to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers to keep them apprised of the diagnosis and prognosis of Cushing’s disease and the many complications she experienced on this journey. Her ironic humor and raw, emotional approach helps bring hope to those touched by this rare and unrelenting disease. In her mid-thirties, Conley, who strived to keep herself healthy while maintaining the delicate balance of raising a young child, keeping a home, and a demanding career, began to experience a variety of unexplained maladies inconsistent with her life style. Because of the elusive nature of Cushing’s disease, the treatment is a long and complicated process of trial and error. At this time, there is no cure, largely due to the fact that Cushing’s disease is considered an “orphan disease.” As is her nature, she has decided to “adopt” this “orphan” and is doing everything she can to bring awareness to this disease. Conley’s tenacious spirit and determination would not allow this insidious disease to triumph over her life. Armed with her laptop as the only weapon available in the sterility of the recovery room, the author attacks the keyboard with a vengeance to let friends and family know that in this battle, there is no surrender.

This moving memoir contains three interwoven stories. The first tells of a white middle-class kid growing up in 1950s America who goes to an integrated high school and has his world turned around; the second of a young man who overcomes a near-fatal disease and jumps with both feet into the heady swirl of Berkeley in the 1960s; and the third of a radical activist who matures into a tempered revolutionary communist leader.

I am already very thankful for your interest in A Mommys Embrace. Just by your brief curiosity, you have shown it has opened the door to a past memory or to a now moment, a moment connected to one of the greatest gifts our earth offers: a mommys embrace. Its the unconditional love that walks us through our journey, through the hard times, and into and through the good times. The one thing we all desire from (or as) a mother (however our hearts define a mother) that we may overlook a bit is the embrace from a woman who is known as a mother to many yet has never given birth to a single child of her own or a woman who is a mother of one or maybe to a set of twins but a mother in either case. Whatever life brings your way, there is simply no better way to grow on your journey than always knowing its not just a quick kiss on the cheek and a simple its okay squeeze. It is the true, warm, time-stopping embrace from a mommy that assures you that your lifes journey will not be forsaken or taken alone but together because a mommys embrace never ends. With that, this book is a journey as well and just beginning. Thank you for reading. Be watching and be waiting for the next journey the embrace takes us all.
After a fifteen year battle against an elusive enemy, Jody Williams was finally able to put a name to the disease that had been ravaging his body for so long. The Spirit Told Me What the Doctors Couldn't is the inspiring story of Williams’ battle against Cushing’s disease and his miraculous journey to recovery. Cushing's is a deadly disease that afflicts its target with many of the common side effects associated with obesity—high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, and many other varying symptoms. These symptoms can all be treated separately without ever identifying the disease that hides itself deep within the endocrine system. Unfortunately, for many individuals the disease is never uncovered, leading to fatality as they never receive the necessary treatment. If you or someone you know is suffering with any of these symptoms and seeking answers in the battle, be encouraged—there is hope!
Like life, grief has its own set of seasons. We all will eventually face them head-on, in our own time and at our own pace. No matter what our loss, we must learn how to endure and survive our seasons in order to live fully again. In a memoir that follows the metaphor of the seasons, Ernestine Rose provides an enlightening glimpse into her walk through grief after her beloved husband of forty-one years passed away in 2016. Beginning with the season of summer, Ernestine first recounts the year preceding Art’s death as he bravely battled sarcoidosis and eventually succumbed to the disease. As she leads others through the often cold and lonely seasons of autumn and winter, Ernestine details how she grieved her monumental loss and slowly learned how to live without Art. Finally as she reveals her entrance into spring, Ernestine discloses how she found renewal, hope, and faith in a new beginning while gently reminding others that we all heal in our own time. Seasons is the true story of a widow’s journey through the seasons of grief that shares words of wisdom that will help those in mourning to learn to live, love, and dance again.

The relationship between man and horse on the Eurasian steppe gave rise to a succession of rich nomadic cultures. Among them were the Mongols of the thirteenth century – a small tribe, which, under the charismatic leadership of Genghis Khan, created the largest contiguous land empire in history. Inspired by the extraordinary life nomads still lead today, Tim Cope embarked on a journey that hadn't been successfully completed since those times: to travel on horseback across the entire length of the Eurasian steppe, from Karakorum, the ancient capital of Mongolia, through Kazakhstan, Russia, Crimea and the Ukraine to the Danube River in Hungary. From horse-riding novice to travelling three years and 10,000 kilometres on horseback, accompanied by his dog Tigon, Tim learnt to fend off wolves and would-be horse-thieves, and grapple with the extremes of the steppe as he crossed sub-zero plateaux, the scorching deserts of Kazakhstan and the high-mountain passes of the Carpathians. Along the way, he was taken in by people who taught him the traditional ways and told him their recent history: Stalin's push for industrialisation brought calamity to the steepe and forced collectivism that in Kazakhstan alone led to the loss of several million livestock and the starvation of more than a million nomads. Today Cope bears witness to how the traditional ways hang precariously in the balance in the post-Soviet world.
While it is clearly not my intention to review the history of Chicago, it should not surprise the reader to find that a considerable portion of the early material in the book relates to the city in which the author grew up. Few cities of this magnitude can boast of at least fifteen miles of lake shoreline along with outstanding universities such as the University of Chicago, Northwestern, and the medical center of the University of Illinois. Chicago's medical past includes such pioneers of surgery as Nicholas Senn, Christian Fenger, and John B Murphy. In the 1920s, neurological surgery was developed in Chicago by Percival Bailey, Loyal Davis, and Paul C. Bucy. Dr. Davis, chief of surgery at Northwestern medical center, was for many years the editor-in-chief of Surgery Gynecology and Obstetrics, a premier journal of surgical literature in America. Last but not least, the Chicago underworld was represented by John Dillinger, Bugs Moran (whose gang was massacred on St. Valentine's Day), and the Mafia chief Alphonse Capone who, although responsible for innumerable deaths, was finally imprisoned for income tax evasion in the late 1930s.
The Bible in the American Short Story examines Biblical influences in the post-World War II American short story. In a series of accessible chapters, Lesleigh Cushing Stahlberg and Peter S. Hawkins offer close-readings of short stories by leading contemporary writers such as Flannery O'Connor, Allegra Goodman, Tobias Wolff and Kirstin Valdez Quade that highlight the biblical passages that they reference. Exploring episodes from the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament and both Jewish and Christian heritages, this book is an important contribution to understanding the influence of the Bible in contemporary literature.
More than one out of 10 new mothers experience post-partum depression (PPD), yet few women seek help. After Marie Osmond, beloved singer and TV talk show host, gave birth to her seventh child (four of her children are adopted), she became increasingly depressed. One night, she handed over her bank card to her babysitter, got in her car, and drove north-with no intention of returning until she had emerged from her crisis. After she went public with her own experiences with PPD on Oprah and Larry King Live, the response was overwhelming. Now collaborating with a doctor who helped her through her ordeal, Marie Osmond will share the fear and depression she overcame, and reveal how she put it all behind her and is moving on with her life.
One middle-aged woman with no money, three suitcases, a big dream, and a desire to see it all, sets out to live her best solo life. Calling on memories from her teen years when she lived in Rome, Italy, Maria Vano writes openly and honestly about making the decision to leave everyone and everything, to return to the country she once knew. She had no house-sale proceeds, no pension, no profit sharing and no savings, but decided there was no better time than being 44 years old to take off with a one-way ticket and leave it all behind. Maria takes you with her through nearly 20 years of travel and life across 8 countries. This is no tale of paradise, but reveals both the dizzying highs and terrifying lows of long-term solo travel and moving to new countries on a whim, sight-unseen. Maria opens her heart through the joys, hurts, loves, losses, laughter, tears, and even defies death in a foreign country. For fun, she throws in a lot of wine and food while she's at it. In the later years of her travels, she confronts what it's like to travel while unknowingly battling the devastating and grave disease, Cushing's Syndrome-and finding the courage and strength to get back on her feet and move again during recovery, thumbing her nose at the naysayers who said, "you can't," with a hearty "Just watch me." Maria also shares the highlights and joys of discovery, and how she made it through the dark times without fear. Come along with her on a crazy journey full of kindness, laughter, warmth... and truth.

An in-depth study of the English neurologist and polymath Sir Henry Head (1861-1940). Head bridged the gap between science and the arts. He was a published poet who had close links with such figures as Thomas Hardy and Siegfried Sassoon. His research into the nervous system and the relationship between language and the brain broke new ground.
