An ancient fertility tale set within a modern, manic decline into chronic illness, “God Told Me To Do This” capitalizes on one woman’s journey for the benefit of mankind. Sorta. Catapulted from therapist to acupuncturist to emergency room, Cathleen Carr must wander through the hellish gates of both eastern and western medicine before she can realize her dream of becoming a potentially morally corrupt mother.

Addison’s Disease

I have recently been diagnosed with a disease that no one has heard of, affecting glands in our body that most people don’t know much about. It’s called Addison’s Disease and was named after Dr. Thomas Addison, a British physician working in the Dickensian slums of 1850’s London.  All of the patients he observed had tuberculous. I do not. Huzzah!

A few quick facts:

  • I need to replace the hormones that my adrenal glands would be making on their own by taking oral steroid medication.
  • I am replacing cortisol, which regulates stress and overall well-being and aldosterone, which maintains electrolyte balance and blood pressure.
  • If I don’t take my steroid replacement, I will enter into adrenal emergency.
  • Without treatment, I will die.
  • I do not plan on having Roid Rages.  I’m replacing hormones missing from my body, not adding to what’s already there.
  • I will not get better. I will get stabilized and lead a mostly normal life.
  • My energy will fluctuate.  I will learn more as I get on with it. 
  • I would like to perform and coach improv again. It is my goal to get stabilized and return to an active performing life.
  • No matter what, I will still say funny things. Always.
  • JFK had Addison’s Disease.
  • I’m not related to JFK.
  • I wish I were.
  • Or do I?
