For people to share good news, personal achievements and catch up on some ABA (Anything But Addison's). This may be a good cooking recipe, or something positive that happened at work. Please remember that messages should conform to the ADSHG House Rules, ie no jokes, circulars or ads.
Careful timing for each dose helps to keep us feeling our best. When and how many times a day? How much do we need? What happens if you take too much or too little? Adjusting for hot weather? What about DHEA?
Unsure what your entitlements might be for disability assistance in education or employment? Discuss your entitlement and how to claim or appeal for Disability Living Allowance and Disabled Student Allowance.
If you have an idea for local fund-raising or community awareness-raising that you want to canvass with other like-minded volunteers, please raise it here. The ADSHG is a wholly volunteer organisation run by and for people with Addison's. We have no paid staff, so depend on local efforts by local volunteers to make things happen
