After 17 years as a personal trainer, I ran into health problems of my own, eventually having a name put to it..."Cushing's Syndrome," a rare adrenal disease. Tumors were growing on my adrenal glands over-producing Cortisol, your stress hormone. With 24/7 false fight-or-flight stress signals, the body goes haywire, producing horrific side effects such as weight gain around the midsection and back of neck, diabetes and blood sugar deregulation, inflammation, muscle deterioration, frail bones, hair loss, poor immunity, infertility, moonface, buffalo hump, extreme fatigue, brain fog, confusion, severe anxiety/depression and chemical imbalances. Being constantly diagnosed as "healthy" caused me to be told, when I was finally diagnosed correctly, that I had maybe five years to live. Misdiagnosis can be a killer.... It is now my personal mission and obligation to help those suffering from any chronic illness that steals your joy, and bring awareness to Endocrine Disorders. From my journey through Cushing's to Addison's to recovery-from triathlete to barely being able to dress myself and finally to recovering into a stronger person I never knew I was.

One middle-aged woman with no money, three suitcases, a big dream, and a desire to see it all, sets out to live her best solo life. Calling on memories from her teen years when she lived in Rome, Italy, Maria Vano writes openly and honestly about making the decision to leave everyone and everything, to return to the country she once knew. She had no house-sale proceeds, no pension, no profit sharing and no savings, but decided there was no better time than being 44 years old to take off with a one-way ticket and leave it all behind. Maria takes you with her through nearly 20 years of travel and life across 8 countries. This is no tale of paradise, but reveals both the dizzying highs and terrifying lows of long-term solo travel and moving to new countries on a whim, sight-unseen. Maria opens her heart through the joys, hurts, loves, losses, laughter, tears, and even defies death in a foreign country. For fun, she throws in a lot of wine and food while she's at it. In the later years of her travels, she confronts what it's like to travel while unknowingly battling the devastating and grave disease, Cushing's Syndrome-and finding the courage and strength to get back on her feet and move again during recovery, thumbing her nose at the naysayers who said, "you can't," with a hearty "Just watch me." Maria also shares the highlights and joys of discovery, and how she made it through the dark times without fear. Come along with her on a crazy journey full of kindness, laughter, warmth... and truth.

Endocrine imbalances can cause a whole host of physical and mental health problems. Yet, there is currently no definitive source of information that shows how hormones can bridge the gap between mental health and medical health modalities. This book is a bold crossover between the disciplines of medical and mental health, exploring the understanding that some of the major mental diagnoses belong not only to the field of mental health but also to that of medicine. Clients with depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, infertility, suicidality, anger and rage, fatigue, apathy, cognitive impairments, confusion, eating disorders, and poor body image may actually be presenting symptoms of hormonal disorders. Beginning with patient stories that display the devastating effects of misdiagnosis and the struggle to obtain the correct treatment, it provides members of the mental health profession with an authentic understanding of the impact of endocrine imbalances and disorders. With contributions from some of the world's most respected physicians, psychiatrists and psychotherapists, it provides accurate medical and psychological information about hormone imbalances and disorders, how to recognise the signs in patients, and how to treat them effectively. A comprehensive resource that provides all the information needed to identify endocrine disorders in patients successfully; this book will be of immeasurable value to clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, doctors, nurses and mental health clinicians.

Brig. Gen. Stephen A. Hurlbut, who disbanded the 13th Independent Battery, Ohio Light Artillery, scattered its men, gave its guns to other units, and ordered its officers home, accusing all of cowardly performance in battle.

On October 27, 1864, two marvels of the Civil War collided on the Roanoke River near Plymouth, North Carolina. The first was the formidable Confederate ironclad Albemarle, a 376-ton behemoth that had for months roamed the nearby rivers and waters of Albemarle Sound, defeating in turn everything the Federal Navy could throw at it. The second was William B. Cushing, a 21-year-old Federal naval lieutenant who had been selected to lead a virtual suicide mission to destroy the ironclad in her berth. This chronicle of the young officer’s “David vs. Goliath” victory over the daunting ironclad presents a tale of courage and accomplishment.

The little-known story of one of the most important intelligence triumphs of World War II, and “a record of the heroism of a forgotten man” (Naval Historical Foundation). This is the story of the capture of Japan’s “Plan Z”—the Empire’s fully detailed strategy for prosecuting the last stages of the Pacific War. It’s a story of happenstance, mayhem, and intrigue that resulted directly in the spectacular US victory in the Philippine Sea and MacArthur’s early return to Manila, doubtless shortening WWII by months. One night in April 1944, Adm. Koga, commander-in-chief of Japanese forces in the Pacific, took off in a seaplane to establish new headquarters. For security reasons, he had his chief of staff, Rear Adm. Fukudome, fly separately. But both aircraft ran into a typhoon and were knocked out of the skies. Koga did not survive. Fukudome’s plane crash-landed into the sea off Cebu, the Philippines, and both the admiral and the precious war plans floated ashore. Lt. Col. James M. Cushing was an American mining engineer who happened to be in Cebu when war broke out in the Pacific. He soon took charge of the local guerrillas and became a legendary leader. But his most spectacular exploit came when he captured Fukudome and Plan Z. The result was a ferocious cat-and-mouse game between Cushing’s guerrillas and the Japanese occupation forces. While Cushing desperately sent messages to MacArthur to say what he’d found, the Japanese scoured the countryside, killing hundreds of civilians in an attempt to retrieve it. Cushing finally traded the admiral for a cessation of civilian deaths—but secretly retained the Japanese war plans. Naturally, both Tokyo and Washington tried to cover up what was happening—neither wanted the other to know what they’d lost or what they’d found. Now, in this book, we finally learn of the intelligence coup by Lt. Col. Cushing that helped shorten the war. “Every once in a while there is a book about a forgotten or neglected aspect of World War II history that makes a reader wonder why this story has not been turned into a movie. Cushing’s Coup is one of those books.” —Naval Historical Foundation

This important but little-known account of several southwestern tribes has heretofore been available only in the author's native Dutch. Ten Kate's studies of the Pima, Hopi, Apache, and Zuni people are especially noteworthy for their information on tribal cultures. He observed firsthand and sought out informants willing to elaborate on Indian games and sports and on social organization and myths of religious significance. He was particularly interested in the position of women and treatment of children and admired the natives' attitudes on these matters more than did other early anthropologists. His best material is from his extended stay at Zuni, where he and Frank Hamilton Cushing became lifelong friends. His observations on the impact of whites on Indian cultures constitute valuable documentation of the dilution of native life-styles. Although he is not as well known as contemporaries like Bandelier, Bourke, and Matthews, ten Kate's work remains influential in the field after more than 120 years.

Fresh from success in sinking the Albermarle in the Civil War, the young Captain Cushing was assigned to command the gunboat USS Maumee in Hong Kong to aid the restoration of America’s naval power in Asia. By linking such aims to British policy, and by courting Chinese and Japanese officials, he succeeded in re-establishing American naval and commercial power in the Far East. In his letters to his fiancée, he brilliantly recorded his travels and observations of people and places (and the difficulties of reconciling his naval career with his devotion to her, whom he married in 1870).
