Saw the Dr today and these are his findings.

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I went to the homeopath and he did iridology and found nothing wrong with my thyroid (I knew that from my test) nor with any other vital organs for which I am grateful.
After asking me dozens of questions and found that I have had an adrenal blow-out.
Just had one DRAMA too many and being over 50 I'm not dealing with it at all well anymore. He also wanted me to go off any diet for 3 days so I could increase my protein levels to fight the fatigue and also he wants me to eat something small every hour for the 8 hrs I'm awake for create a balance in my insulin levels. Tomorrow I go for an insulin level blood test.

I finished with him at 12.30, got some meds which he made me take in his surgery and went home, sat in front of the TV and woke up at 4.30pm.
I think we may finally be on the right track after 2 months because whereas I was having 7-8 fainting attacks now called adrenalin crashes per day....this afternoon I have had one slight one. Being asleep may be what helped, but the days to come will tell.

For now, I feel positive that I am on the road to recovery and being my old self.

What I still have to figure out, is how to stop the WRETCHES that create my body to generate adrenalin attacks. Those people don't care if you get ill because of them...they just find a new host if you die. That part is mine to figure out and I truly don't know how to stop them getting inside my soul and sucking me dry. The obvious solutions I cannot do like dumping my mom in an old age home etc etc etc. She is 79 in July and has a phobia of living in an old age home, sadly it doesn't make her behave which is a tragedy really. Still, for me that isn't an option.
So its back to the drawing board for me with regard to the handful of problem people creating upheaval in my life.

So with feeling we may be on the right track, I'm looking forward to the 12 week weight loss program I start on the 25th Feb.

    Wow. Sounds like you have been going through what I did last April and May. Still trying to get through some things as my body was on full burnout.

    good luck with your battle against this...Great to find someone who actually knows what it is. Ordinary doctors seem to totally ignore adrenal things... And each day hope you get better and better

    Celest...glad you are feeling better and when you are more balanced in your health and emotions the stress will be less of an obstacle. People have to suffer their own consequences...if a hot stove is touched a burn will occur...or gravity. They are just life rules. Throwing yourself between the consequence just puts you on top of the heat or bruised when softening a blow...and the other person does not learn. My Mom fears "homes" also. She had to leave her beautifull and very comfortable home to come live with me in her advancing age. While I do much to help her she knows that her work is to maintain her health and strengths to the level she is able.
    I wish you well with your Feb 25th focus. emoticon

    Sorry about you having to keep the stress-makers. Adrenal fatigue & those sorts of people in our lives is a familiar combo for me. Can't avoid either it seems so I pray (literally, specifically) with each encounter. Jah helps so much.
    Hang in there!

    Our bodies are pretty amazing... but they do have limits. And you are so giving of yourself. I know for myself, I had to learn a new word: NO. When someone asks me to do more then I can do (for my health and my family's health) I have to say NO - even when it is really hard. I so want to keep peace and so want to help but my body and brain just can't keep going like I once did. Perhaps it would be beneficial if you could start limiting the stressers? Even if you can remove them completely, limiting your advailability to them might help? Just a thought.
    Hang in there Celeste!

    so YOU aren't MAD...everyone else is! YOU are wise to be tracking down your health issues, making life changes to cope with "everyone else" as needed and paying close attention to your daily efforts to be healthy. emoticon

    3 steps forward...tripping over the idiots who get in our way...2 steps falling back...again over idiots who have not moved...3 more steps forward...guess what, we are crawling over them again, cause they are still there...falling 2 steps back over them cause we lost our balance...another 3 steps through the obstacle course and HEY....we finally made 3 steps progress!!! emoticon Do I feel guilty calling MY mom and idiot? She took out a map, stuck her finger on a spot in the middle of where us kids live (we are in different states) and moved there. Can I spell P-a-n-i-c!!! Life happens, and we forge ahead, despite the set-backs because of stressors we have no control over, we DO make progress.
