Jerica, I'm sorry you are feeling so sick and that you aren't getting a lot of answers. Is your doc going to do anything about
the low cortisol levels or the low hormone levels? I found out a few months ago that a lot of my hormone levels were low, so I was given a compunded hormone cream to rub on my wrists and it has made a pretty significant change in my energy level. I am actually able to be up and doing things most days. It's something to look into. Also with your thyroid levels, a doc once told me that if you are at either end of what is considered "normal" you might be feeling the effects of problems with your thyroid and it might need to be treated.
Hang in there and don't give up looking for help. And no, you are not crazy and you are certainly not lazy. I think healthy people have a hard time comprehending just how severe and debilitating our fatugue can be.
