About this Publication

Addison's Disease Self Help Group newsletter, issue 120, June 2015


Welcome to the summer 2015 newsletter. This issue takes an optimistic punt on the British weather – or our members’ overseas travel plans – and is packed full with hot weather and travel advice. You can find out how expert traveller Nathan Gafuik, the Canadian gymnast with Addison’s, handles long haul flights when he travels to international competitions, on page 5. And you can discover how ADSHG trustee Andrew is adapting to life in colourful, crowded, humid Bangkok. Ex-pat ADSHG member Yvonne explains how she survives in the searing Australian summers.
