Addi the Addison's Disease Chargimal
Hi everyone! My name is Addi, or more formally Addisonidon. I represent Adrenal Insufficiency and Addison’s Disease.
Addison’s disease is the autoimmune form of adrenal insufficiency. I really like the color light blue and my best friends are Foggy and Snore. I always crave potato chips and pretzels. Potato chips are my favorite and I can get a little hangry if I can’t find them.
My adrenal glands don’t produce enough steroid hormones, this can lead to life-threatening situations. That’s why I always need to carry steroids with me wherever I go.
Addison’s Disease is very rare and only one in 100,000 people get it. That makes me really special! I like to play pranks on others with my besties, but shhhh… don’t tell anyone. They don’t know the prankster is me.
In short, this kinda describes me:
Represents: Adrenal Insufficiency and Addison’s Disease
