My parents went to a Christmas function the other day and my mom met a doctor who was both a pharmacist and naturopath there.
When mom came home she told me about adrenal fatigue something the woman had mentioned and gave me the doctors information.
I read about adrenal fatigue which I thought I understood but really didn’t. I had a naturopath tell me she believed my adrenals were very damaged early this year and gave me vitamins to take. The vitamins she gave me didn’t end my pain so I figured something else was wrong with me.
I was reading up on adrenal fatigue last night and I feel maybe, just maybe, its an answer. I of course don’t know and I don’t hope for anything anymore because in the past whenever I hoped I found a way to alleviate my pain I ended up suffering more.
I have been feeling pretty awful. Today I was shut down like a zombie without a morsel of energy and my head was spinning, so I was like just great, now I’m going to have a mental breakdown where I loose all consciousness of myself- just great– but it didn’t happen, though I always expect the worst these days. It could be also a symptom of whatever is going wrong with me physically. I get new awful symptoms every week it seems. Another recent one was the inability to control my eyes with ease. I have trouble controlling eye movements. My mom has mentioned she noticed this.
I am kind of numb, I’m used to falling apart.
But the adrenal fatigue information gave me great hope and then I suppressed the hope because I cannot expect rescue in case it doesn’t come. I’m on survival mode.
I’m trying to push my hormone test date up. They wanted to wait till my next period to do it but frankly I feel I cant wait to rule out the adrenal fatigue( which I’ve asked my doctor to add, hopefully he will).
Then I will try the saliva test for adrenal fatigue through the office of the doctor my mom met.
I’m trying to stay encouraged and believe this all has a purpose.
