Can't Face It

I should've stress dosed after Tuesday.

It was too much after all.

I'm doing the long slooow slide down, very similar to August.

Soon I'll reach a tipping point that will force me to up the dose.

I suspect Monday will be a problem.

Doc appt.

With the pulmonologist.

If you've read this blog for a while, you know why this will stress me out.

If not Monday, the dinner dance on Saturday could do it.

I suppose I could just throw in the towel and increase the dose now, but I keep hoping it's in my head. That I'm making it up. That I should sleep more. That it's not so bad. That people with 'real' adrenal problems wouldn't be able to wait and see, so my adrenals aren't really all that bad.That if I ignore it, it will go away.

We'll see how all that denial works out for me.

  1. fyi - I looked it up - it took my family memeber (with secondary adrenal suppression) 4 months to taper off hydrocortisone.

Thanks for your comment. I read all comments and do my best to respond to questions, usually in a new post.

If you have adrenal issues and want to connect with other patients the following message boards are wonderful resources:
