In the Bering I thought I was imaging what was happening to me. After seeing so many doctors and being told I just needed to loose weight finally a doctor ran some test and diagnosed me with Cushing’s. On May 3rd 2016 after two years of living with Cushing’s I had the tumor removed. It’s only been a few weeks and am on hydrocortisone 20ml, I still have head aches and was told it will past in time. I can’t smell and have no sense of taste. I hope to get. Ack to the gym soon and work on loosing the 70lbs I have gained. You guys have giving me hope.

the good news is that you’re onto diagnosis. What you describe is just what I felt. Everyone said I was aging or just thought I was unable to control my weight. I had anxiety really badly in the beginning and could not sleep. No none understood what was happening to me. A lot of people still don’t get it.
I was very blessed to have friend diagnose me. After finally getting medical help I am cured. I can trace cushings at least 8 years prior to surgery. I never had trouble with weight before either. Now I am strong enough to go back to the gym to regain muscle. The weight fell off in 6 months without much effort. I feel so much better. I have my life back through the miracle of having the right people and help in my path. Hang in there it can happen to you. I get lots of compliments on my weight now and my friends and family have been super supportive. You can get through this and it will make you stronger.

I returned home great support from family epic all hubby and 2 daughters . On the 4th November I was admitted to hospital feeling awful terrible headache no energy lack of appetite . I had a lumber puncture cat scan all came back clear they said it was an infection . Since returning home my muscles ache as if I’ve done a heavy workout appetite still not great taste buds not great still no sense of smell lack of energy , sleeping pattern still not great lots of hot and cold sweats and I crave very cold drinks . It’s nearly 6 weeks since my op I have also lost 9 lbs and I know I’ve still got a long way to go .

Comment on Claude Monet and Ultraviolet Light. Did the Master Impressionist painter have UV supervision ? by Paul http://www.skepticalartist.com/2013/06/25/claude-monet-and-ultraviolet-light-did-the-master-impressionist-painter-have-uv-supervision/#comment-26741 Fri, 02 Oct 2015 16:57:09 +0000 http://www.skepticalartist.com/?p=93#comment-26741 For Tom Clive,
Hi, my 20 year-old daughter has been able to see ground level plasma waves as they float along the ground or build to shoulder height.

These occur as waves that flow down a hill or hover at ground level like evening fog or morning mist.

When walking through this plasma, it will swirl like smoke that’s been interfered – like that of a hand passing across smoke. When we walk through it, it swirls around our feet.

Sometimes it will engulf our dogs as they walk with us.

Colours range in blues and purples.

She thought everyone could see these.

I’ll ask her what the ground plasma looks like during a day that I know has an increased level of ground magnetism (especially after arrival of a CME, Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun), and she’ll tell me it’s more intense or … greatly decreased on lower magnetism days well after a CME.

When certain clouds appear that show greater energetic plasma characteristics she will confirm this in the increased ground plasma she sees.

Lots of fun to have her confirming past solar events reaching Earth when I haven’t checked the solar data for a few days.

Another one to think about.
Best Regards
Paul

I’ve had 2 rounds of 24 hr urines, bloodwork and saliva. Each time I fail something and show elevated cortisol. Now I need an MRI and CT scan. I’m waiting for the bloodwork to allow me to have the contrast dye, and insurance authorization. It’s frustrating. I don’t recognize myself in the mirror. Before. My appearance changed I just could lose weight. I actually gained weight while dieting and doing cross training 4 days a week in addition to kickboxing, bike riding and long walks. But my routine bloodwork was good. Finally when my BP shot up out of blue and my A1c suddenly went up, my PC referred me to an endocrinologist. It’s takin forever but at least I feel like something’s being done. I hope my imaging is negative and I can just be treated with metformin, but either way they finally know it’s not me being lazy.

I was on vacation with my family and when I looked at the t-shirts in the ultra violet light box, white flames were shooting out and I didn’t see any t-shirts glow in the dark. I had cataract surgury and a crystalens implant in my left eye. I covered my left I then I saw the shirt glow in the dark.
