ENTRY #18 - International Friends

As of today, I've officially had my blog for two months. It's hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be to get "real" with people about Addison's. It requires me blowing up my personal walls. I haven't even really started. The ugly stuff is still struggling to come out.

Soon, my daughters are going to also make contributions that will give their angle as kids who grew up with a mom who has battled too many times of being critically ill. But, I am amazed at the readership. I have just a few "official" signed-up followers, but my readership for outside hits (with emails) has already been about 1,000 ----- from ALL OVER THE WORLD ----- not including the U.S.A., I have contacts from China, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Latvia, Israel, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada and France.

If you are out there, be brave and sign up so I can see you better!!! Regardless, I am amazed and extremely touched by the outreach - even the private emails.

If you or a loved one are dealing with a medical issue that impacts your entire life...YOU ARE NOT ALONE.


  1. Hi Lana
    I have a son who has Addisons, he is 11. I enjoy reading your blog.

  2. Barbara, Welcome!! When you get time...I'd like to know the story behind your son's diagnosis; I am sure we'd all learn. I have several readers who have children with Addison's or Adrenal Insufficiency issues, it must be an extra challenge. God Bless & thanks for reading!! Lana.

  3. Lana, i just sent an email to your yahoo email address. I do have a few friends of kids with addisons, one Jean Sullivan who also follows you.

  4. Barbara, I got your email and sent you an email response. I was overwhelmed. Your experience is, within itself, a mountain climbing experience --- giving moments of gasping and of being awestruck. I am very much looking forward to staying in touch. Your strength, as a mother who is faced with great challenges is inspiring. Please keep sharing. Lana C.
