Bewildered

I took 5mg this morning after waking up to adrenal pain and just not feeling great. I did a little bit better last night after a nap, but it took hours and hours after I woke up to get that improvement.

5mg is really helping, but I wonder if I might actually need 10mg.

Trying not to do that, but it may come down to taking more.

Is my system pooping out on me? Or was last week really too much? Really?

Today I'm not sick. Yesterday I was congested with asthma symptoms. It seems like every other day I feel like I'm coming down with something, which I guess I will now take as a sign of adrenal stress.

  1. Oh I'm SO sorry you had to take roids, but glad they are helping. It is such an "art" for you to figure out how much and when with zero guidance. Yeesh.

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