Lately, and honestly since D-day, I have been getting sick a lot. If there is a bug in my general vicinity? I get it. If other people get well quickly, I get pneumonia from it. I constantly feel exhausted, no matter what I try. I meditate, journal, go to therapy, walk, read. I just do not know what to try next to feel better.
I have been reading about adrenal fatigue. Apparently, with a good deal of stress and often when it is prolonged, the adrenals become flooded and are unable to do their job well. I am on this journey of trying to make my health better. I have been eating better than I used to but darn, if not an ounce of weight drops off of me. An interesting fact about adrenal fatigue is the craving of caffeine, salty foods and sweet foods. Yep. Sign me up. I will be visiting an endocrinologist soon to try to figure out where I stand and to hopefully, slowly, begin to feel better.
Have any of you noticed a decrease in your physical health after dday? Do you have symptoms of adrenal fatigue? I’d appreciate your input. Have a wonderful Monday, friends.
