Dr. N. Karen Thames Today is my 6 year BLAnniversary! Whoot! 6 years ago, both of my adrenal glands were removed as a last resort to finally rid my body of Cushing's disease. This is called a Bilateral Adrenalectomy or BLA. That was my second time battling that disease but for medical reasons I won't expand on now, a second brain surgery was not a viable option. Ironically, having this surgery was a trade, as I went from having one rare life threatening illness to having another life threatening illness, Addison's disease or Adrenal Insufficiency. This leaves me susceptible to potentially fatal adrenal crises, my last one being just two weeks ago. HOWEVER, Cushing's was killing me slowly but surely! It left me bedridden and completely nonfunctional. I had to leave private practice as a Clinical Psychologist because the illness was kicking my butt! But NOW, in my current situation, I can manage my health so much more effectively, that's for sure! I would have the surgery all over again if I had to and I do NOT regret my decision to move forward with it! I am Cushing's free! For good! Don't feel bad for me if you hear that I have had an adrenal crisis. This gal ALWAYS wins those battles and I apparently have MORE than 9 lives! LOL I always celebrate today and I am always grateful! My sense of gratitude is overflowing! I never take life for granted and appreciate every breath afforded to me! I hope to do something positive with the life I have been given. For my purpose has not changed, it is the path that is different. My purpose is to positively impact the lives of other chronic illness warriors everywhere! So, happy anniversary to me!

Busy working moms don't always have the time it takes to research all that is out there about how to protect their children from vaccination reactions. My webinar focuses on educating parents about "toxic body load" and how to reduce this before taking their children in to be vaccinated so they can reduce the chances of a serious long-term vaccination reactions.
