  • I have had Sheehan's for 26 years now. I was misdiagnosed for the first 12 or so, hearing it was all in my head. A psycologist with another Sheehan's patient recognized the signs and sent me to an endocrinologist. Once I had the diagnosis, and applied, I became eligible for SSI on the first attempt.If you would like, contact me through the e-mail address in my profile. I would like to compare notes about Sheehan's.

  • I can't see your profile yet. It is telling me that my account doesn't have that priveledge yet. It may be that I need to post a certain amount of times or something. Please email me at kathyjacks@aol.com if you read this. I would love to talk to someone else with this condition as I was told it was very rare this day and time and have never met anyone with it.
