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.

All is well!

Paper whites, icicles and snow

I hope I didn't give you all the impression that I'm running around crying all the time. I just wanted to make the point that I'm not always running around wearing Halloween costumes, smiling and laughing. I had a stomachache for about 3 weeks and I finally realized the cause which also manifests itself as being fatigued and glum. That would be low cortisol! My theory is that I was taking 25 mg of HC but my need was slightly more, like 25.5 or 27 and so on a daily basis I was running a little behind but not enough to make me say, "Hmmmmm, I'd better take some more HC." I upped my HC this week from 25 mg to 30 or 35 mg/day and amazingly (insert sarcasm here!) I got my appetite back and a little energy. Yahoo!

I've been cleaning houses as exercise. It's been an interesting study in efficiency since I can't carry things too well. It's making me silly sore in the arms too.

Tomorrow I meet with my physical therapist/personal trainer/athlete guy so he can give me some working out motivation that will not compromise my healing. I'm sure I'm doing enough on my own to compromise my healing.

Trumpeter Swan dwarfing the Canada Geese!!! TS are huge.

I can't get out in the snow but Dolly can. She loves it.

Dolly, a girl dog, is a medical miracle. She grew "balls". Not only am I healing like a 12 year old, I act like one too.
