I was skimming through "Practical Programming for Strength Training" by Rippetoe & Kilgore, page 98 and found this interesting (to people with Addison's!) passage:
Cortisol reponse is trainable. After a bout of maximal exercise a novice may experience a much greater than 100% increase in blood cortisol levels, whereas a maximal exercise in an elite trainee may induce as little as a 20% increase.Although I'm not a doctor, I have felt that Addison's people who are new to exercise should increase hydrocortisone before the new activity. See my post: Training, Setting Goals, Getting Started under "GOALS-MEDS". Now there's some confirmation that there might be a scientific basis behind it!

A penny stuck in the ice. I kicked it into a deep pile of snow trying to get it out. However, yesterday I hit pay dirt. I found $1.91 in change on the side of the road. Luckily I was near my car because it was a lot of money to carry!!!
