Thanks for asking. I'm still on prednisone which has still been my saving grace. I just wish it didn't have the bad side effects - otherwise I'd ask to stay on it for the rest of my life. My life is really really busy right now so I'm pretty exhausted. After the next two weeks things should slow down and hopefully I won't have suffered too much.
When things do settle down I would like to look into that book regarding adrenal fatigue, especially for the diet - my diet needs a pretty big overhaul. I'm also hoping after I get rested up a bit that I can gradually work into a regular exercise routine. I'm also intrigued about
accupuncture based on what you said it did for your sugar cravings.
I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all of the info you have given to others on this forum. I think if people read what you have been through and that you are now figuring some things out and seeing some results, that it will hopefully give others some hope. Chronic fatigue (whatever causes it) is absolutely horrible to live with and most people don't understand how truly horrible it is.
I hope you continue to see positive results. I hope you had a great weekend and a great anniversary!!
