Joselle writes in her bio: "I am a 48 year old female recently diagnosed with Cushing's Disease caused by a pituitary adenoma. It's taken a few years to finally come to this diagnosis. I had a series of symptoms which were indicative of a variety of disorders. However, I don't present as the "typical" Cushing's patient as I don't have the "moon face" or "buffalo hump". Fortunately, I have a primary doctor who didn't give up and ultimately orderd the cortisol suppression test. He then referred me to an endocrinologist. I had an MRI this past week. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon in a week. It's a bittersweet diagnosis; I am a little scared about the surgery, but THRILLED that I am not crazy.....and maybe I'll actually be able to stop SHAVING my face !!!!!!"
