Not In My Head!
Anybody get the tense gut feeling when the Doctor you are entrusting with health, tells you "Everything looks normal, lets try anti-depressants"? You know there is something wrong inside your body not your head. How many visits did you make to the Doctors office or even the ER? Did you leave feeling as if your more confused than when you arrived. Your not alone.
Adrenal Fatigue has no IDC code, which means in the insurance world it doesn't exist. How can a Doctor get paid if he/she finds a diagnosis with no payment attached. Very few people in the medical community are aware of AFS, I know I am a RN. When I tell co-workers what my issue, only 1 Doctor understood and was aware of AFS. I got so excited to have validation. Yes, I did manage to go back to work after my diagnosis last year. However, I have to watch everything I eat and carefully manage my supplements. It took 3 months to feel better and 6 months to feel good. Unfortunately I am still pushing myself to get even healthier and by doing so I got worse. I went on the hcg diet, thinking I could rid my body of toxins and heal the hypothalamus. During the diet I got food poisoned a kidney infection, followed by an ear infection, gall bladder surgery and yet another kidney infection! Too much! So where are my boot straps! I did this before and I WILL do it again........heal.
I am here writing this story, which in the big picture means very little. What the purpose is: Shake and Wake the medical community to take hold and help. Be Aware, Validate and Help. There are the resources for the research needed. The fear is there is not the ability to patent and sell good nutrition, sleep, exercise and a smile.
