My work out yesterday consisted of 15 minutes of windmilling my arms and doing a few squats, followed by a slow walk with the toddler and our geriatric black lab.
7/10ths of a mile.
I'm tanked today. Just wiped.
Although it was just a crazy busy day--very high impact on the stress meter, so that may have compounded things.
For recordkeeping purposes:
-Lots of cramps in my feet, hands and stomach overnight.
-Up peeing 4 times during the night (this is something that manifests with adrenal insufficiency. I haven't really mentioned it here, but it's pretty consistent and improves when I feel less adrenal.)
-Burning adrenal pain that woke me up multiple times over the course of the night.
-Lethargic limbs, weakness.
I was reading back over the archives and I would have to say I really haven't had as much progress as I thought. There was that stomach flu and the times where I had some 'bounce' to my system, but it appears my bounce has bounced away.
As an experiment I might try 2.5mg, just to see. That should be low enough that if it tips me over into hypercortisolism it won't be too bad.
I keep hoping tomorrow will be better, I keep trying to believe that today was better than yesterday, but I think it might be time to admit things are not going as well as my capacity for denial likes to pretend.
