Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 114, December 2013


Welcome to the winter 2013 newsletter. This issue explores the ways that people with Addison’s around the world have chosen to celebrate life post-diagnosis. Rachel in Eire, Andrew in Spain, an Ian and Sarah in the UK, and Geoff in Australia, describe some of the ways they have marked their diagnosis and recovery, many through sporting or recreational achievements. Jane explains in her page 7 column on coping with stress how she, too, determined to see the positives in her diagnosis and put it to good use in her life.
