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 ...
