My Vicious Cycle

There is one thing that I really hate about having adrenal fatigue and it's the vicious cycle I find myself in every day. I feel horrible and my body craves something with caffeine or sweet. When I eat it, I actually feel better for 3-4 hours to only crash the next day even worse. Without that quick fix though, I usually have to take 2-3 hour naps a day and even after the nap I feel just about as tired as I did when I went to sleep. BLAH. It makes me so frustrated with myself that I think it's causing its own stress and emotional problems. As a result, for 3 days I am vowing to not eat any packaged foods, no caffeine, and no sweets. It's not going to be too tough because my husband is with me on this one.

For the next 3 days, I will be feeling like crap. I can't wait!

I started at level 7. When I got to level 5, I was ready to cartwheel. DrLam.com has an adrenal recovery program that worked wonders for me

Thank you for this information. There is a doctor in this area that uses natural techniques, but I found out that his waiting list is almost 6 months.

I wish I could even walk up a flight of stairs. haha I think my really low blood pressure has to do with it.
