Dusty's New Addison's Support Advocacy and Forum
My friend, Dusty Hardman, has just launched her new website, Addison's Support Advocacy and Forum. When I was caring for Annie, Dusty's former website and forum was a treasure-trove of helpful information mostly geared to adults who are living with Addison's, or primary adrenal insufficiency. This one is new and improved, and I love the way it looks and how easy it is to navigate.
The value of the website for me was understanding what it FELT like to have Addison's. Annie was nonverbal, so she could never say how she was feeling at any given moment--I had to guess. So reading Dusty's blog helped me get inside of Annie's head a little, and try to read her signals better. Dusty's forum was incredibly helpful, too, in that I read how many different people dealt with the daily struggles of AI.
So there you have it--your tip of the day. Check it out.
