My name is Cynthia, and I am a wife and mother to a little princess. Currently I do not work, but I hold a bachelor's degree in accounting and a CPA license. I enjoy reading, playing piano, helping my daughter with violin, listening to music, and just being able to get out and do the little things I have not been able to do for most of the past year.
After six long years of symptoms, I was finally diagnosed with PAI and SAI in December 2009. I was very fortunate to get a great endocrinologist the first time! It took longer to find a great GP, but he was well worth the wait. We are working out some of the secondary problems now, but I have every faith that he will listen and see me through to the best of his ability.
Getting diagnosed and getting "well" require traveling a very long and complicated road, and there really isn't a good map. But my friends here at MDJ have provided me a lot of assistance and direction. Without all of you, I do not think I would have made it this far! I hope I am able to give at least a little bit of that back. Along the way, we can cry together and we can laugh together. I just hope we laugh a little more than we cry!
