The Cushie Anthem

The Cushie Anthem

By Crystal M Tidwell

The doctor’s think I’m crazy fat and just plain lazy.


I try to explain my symptoms but my mind is foggy and hazy.

I now have bad acne and my skin is an oily mess.

Doctors say it’s hormones and stress.


It’s been one exhausting test after another.

I pray my diagnosis isn’t much further.


I’m tired of looking like a pumpkin head.

Doctors say I’m not cushingoid looking enough instead.


For me these last two years have been a nightmare.

I am grateful for all the supportive Cushies who’s making others aware.


We are stronger together united we fight!


We are Cushing’s warrior’s and will continue to shed light!
