Addison's Disease Message Board


Addison's Disease Board Index


On August 2, 2004 my son Kristopher, age 25, died from Addison's Disease. Like most of you here, he had gone to the Drs. and even been admitted to the hospital with ALL the symptoms of Addison's but was NEVER diagnosed. They kept telling us nothing was wrong and on the last visit, 2 weeks before he died, he was diagnosed with depression and given Zoloft. It was a senseless death. Kris was a wonderful young man with a young wife and a little girl who are lost without him. We are ALL lost without his smile, his voice....I cannot beleive I will never see him again in this world. I alternate between rage at the Drs. who let him die and grief over a loss that I will NEVER get over. :(

The reason I came here and posted this msg. is simple. If you think you have Addison's....[B]PLEASE don't wait to seek help[/B]...if one Dr. doesn't satify you then [U]PLEASE[/U] go to another. I don't want anyone to suffer the way Kris did...mostly in silence because the Drs. said there was nothing wrong. I don't want any family to go through what my family has gone through!!
Annie, Your story makes me cry. Why can't the doctors see what's before their eyes? Have you met with the doctors involved? Sorry you are suffering so & hope in time you will find some peace. I cannot imagine the hurt from your loss.

Dear Annie,

I am sure many here would be interested in knowing to watch for your magazine article, if/when it comes out. Please make us aware of it, as I know you will. What a tremendous idea for the protection of others! I know this must be a terribly stressful and discouraging time for you. Please be strong and get the rest you need to endure it all. ~ Tracy
