Current Cushie Bloggers

Cushie Bloggers

Cushie Bloggers

Cushie Bloggers are a group of Cushing's patients, family members and friends, who are members of the Cushing's Help and Support Message Boards.

We don't always write about Cushing's because we have varied and interesting lives but the syndrome is always lurking behind the scenes, somewhere.

If you think that you might qualify as a Cushie Blogger but are not a member of the message boards for whatever reason, please email me with your blog information and we'll check it out to see if it can be included here.

Several Contributors, including Robin (staticnrg) whose idea it was to start this blog, Bug, CindyRPT, Jessie, Judy, Kristin, Lisa, Mal de Med, MaryO, Mertoo, PhilB and Steve : Herding Zebras
Who are we? We are "zebras".

We are people with stories to tell about chronic illness as it pertains to our lives or the lives of those we love.

There are two types of contributors to "Herding Zebras":


  • Those who who blog about one or more "rare" illnesses and wish to share here, too.
  • Those who experience and write about their "zebra" illness but do not have their own blogs.
Zebra illnesses come in many forms. Each day brings new challenges, new rewards, and new hope. This blog is about sharing those with you in hopes it will help someone.
