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.

Picture album and migraines

I've spent the last 2 days hanging out between the bed and the couch with migraines. When I got my FOURTH migraine yesterday morning, Kate helped me decide that I ought to go to the doctor to get a shot or two to break the cycle. I did it. I hate shots but they seem to have done the trick. So far no new migraines. The doctor prescribed a new med for me to try to get rid of migraines once they happen but so far no ideas about how to keep them from occuring in the first place.

I guess I need to mention that the reason that migraines are so dangerous for me is because if I start throwing up, I dehydrate easily. In addition, I can't take the main medicine (hydrocortisone) that keeps me alive. Lastly, if I do start throwing up and can't keep liquids down, I end up in the Emergency Room with an IV and it's really expensive to have that happen.

I can't remember if I've posted this Picasa photo album

link with pictures of the Grand Teton Races. The pictures are of the 100 milers, 50 milers, Trail Marathon runners and our Support Crew (Allison and Dave). There are a lot of pictures!

Running has fallen by the wayside because I've been so busy and from lack of planning.
