Monday blues or something more?

Monday, September 16, 2013

As I sat at my desk this morning I could feel the fatigue move over me like a storm cloud on a soon to be rainy day. It became heavy and troublesome. Motionless and powerless to what was happening I began to reflect ...

My weekend was calm and relaxed. I did what I wanted ... when I wanted. There was minimal stress and I slept. The fatigue has become apart of my life again and the dark cloud follows me everywhere I go.

Today a moment of clarity came and I remembered this storm cloud from years ago. I frantically scanned my brain and recalled all those moments of tired desperation and tears as I lived for years with constant fatigue that was crippling in the end. Just as a flash of lightening lights up the sky my brain flickered as I remembered it all ... MY ADRENALS!!

I've been off my adrenal support program of a good while ... you know because I "felt better." (FACE/PALM) Yup, I felt better for almost a year and now suddenly - okay, not so suddenly - they are crashing again.

I called Doc's office to review my chart and to review my symptoms. It would appear my "I feel better" moments have been depleted and I shall return to my adrenal program.

Admittedly, even though I've been working out and doing okay I've let my wellness program become a bit flat. I need to put myself first and move in a different direction. I started that today because it was the right thing to do not because it's a Monday.

... Now I'm off to the gym to sweat a bit ...

    Glad you were able to know to process the things going on and put the pieces together. Glad you are in contact with your doctor and getting back on the program. Hope the gym went well and that Monday turned into a good day :).
