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.

Quick post, rotten couple of weeks

Happy Thanksgiving!

Aside from seeing family and friends that we've haven't seen in years or, in some cases ever, it was a rotten couple of weeks.

A word of advice:  don't try new meds before traveling to visit family.  You'll get a bad reputation and, of course, you'll get labled as "depressed".  

In an effort to avoid migraines, I tried some hormones that my doctor prescribed.  Well, it turns out that he told me how to take them improperly, they made me feel like crap AND they exacerbated my migraines.  Most people who have struggled with migraines can tell you that they wear on you mentally, physically and emotionally due to the upset they cause in neurotransmitters.  I also hurt my back which didn't help anything.  I had 4 migraines in 5 days.  By the 4th one, I was a disaster and sobbing hysterically. Paul stuffed me in the car and took me to the ER for some shots to break the cycle of the migraines.  Thank goodness these shots worked.

I do have good, positive things to say.  I will do this later and add lots of pictures.  I'm feeling much better since the migraines have stopped and the hormones have been stopped.
