Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

New York Times story about Addison's Disease

If you're interested in reading an Addison's diagnosis story, click here. Many people with Addison's are diagnosed while in the hospital, near death.

Please note: In the story it says people with Addison's don't produce adrenaline, I don't believe this is true. The autoimmune process of Addison's disease attacks the outer portion of the adrenal glands, where cortisol and aldosterone are produced. The inner portion of the adrenal gland is a separate organ and it is where the adrenaline is produced.
