I have encountered a new health problem. My adrenal glans are not producing normal amounts of cortisol. Lately I have had no energy and an increase in pain in areas where I didn't have pain before. My doctor suggested a saliva test. It showed that I am not producing cortisol.
I have been trying to push through this but it is very difficult. Some times this disease can be overwhelming. It seems that every time you think that you have established a new norm, something new pops up. I am trying not to let it drag me down. It is a tough fight.
We also lost another CRPS Warrior last week. I met Lisa and her partner at our CRPS PIP symposium last November. It is so sad to loose such a vibrant person. I always wonder if there was something more that I could have done to get help for her.
I am trying to eat a healthier diet and have added resistance to my exercise bike. It is really difficult to get motivated to ride it but I have making it a priority. I have given up diet drinks. I am trying not to eat processed foods. We are getting organic fruits and veggies. I even got Jim to buy free range chicken.
