North East, Pennsylvania
Somewhere around November 18th or 19th of 2007, I started feeling what I thought were Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my right hand. The symptoms included: tingling of my fingers, numbness, and I was having trouble typing. I went out and bought wrist guards, and things designed to help CT patients. The symptoms continued for about two weeks and I promised I?d visit the doctor after Thanksgiving....

The bipolar disorder diagnosis at the age of 23 was a relief to know I was not simply a bad person and there was a reason for the way I have felt. Yet I have been struggling to cope and understand this disorder... what does it mean? How do the brain imbalances affect my behavior and moods? Why do I rapid cycle? Why do I get obsessive thoughts? Is there a link between mania and memory? Is there...

I'm a 35 year old mother and wife living with cancer. My two oldest children and I were diagnosed six years ago with MEN2a and Medullary Thyroid Cancer. At the time I was also diagnosed with Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer and Pheochromocytomas (adrenal tumors). Everything since then has been one very loopy rollercoaster ride.

In 1996 I had an experience normally called "mania" by most psychiatrists. At its peak, I was in such a state of ectasy that I thought I had died. The episode ended with me being handcuffed by two police officers and taken to Psychiatric Emergency because I had refused the officer's request to put my clothes back on, in the ballroom of a Toronto Hotel. At the hospital, I could see...

Hi. My name is Liz and I have brain cancer. This blog acts as my personal journal/communication forum/cancer soap box. I like interacting with cancer survivors (if you're alive you're a survivor), caregivers, people in the medical community, and those who are just curious and wonder what this brain cancer business is all about. Tumor type: Glioma Grade: II, Astrocytoma with gemistocytic...

catonsville, Maryland
I am a surviver of a rare disease called Conn's Disease, or primary hyperaldosteronism. I had it for at least 8 years according to my endocrinologist and surgeon. Last year I had an adrenalectomy to remove the gland and tumor, which cured and removed the horrible side effects that go with this insideous disease. Today, I feel more like myself than I have in 10 years, and I encourage anyone...

There are so many C words that make your heart flutter like...couture, cashmere, or better yet closet! But somehow in my 30's, I had completely forgotten about other C words-words that make your heart feel like it has stopped. Words like carcinoma, cancer or chemo. I am a TV personality, producer and designer. I am the creator of an illuminated clutch line called www.solasfashion.com. As a...
