If you have read my posts, you will know that I have been a train wreck for a year. Ugh. Anyway, I think I just realized a pattern in my moods. I seem to go for 4-6 weeks feeling pretty good, then I will have a couple of weeks that are really bad, lots of crying and yelling and frustration, and then I will have some time where I feel like I do now, which is good in the morning, an enormous drop in energy in the afternoon-like serious fatigue where I want to be asleep and snap at anybody who talks to me, and then after a couple of hours I feel great again in the evening. Like I do right now. If I understand correctly, that huge afternoon slouch is a sign of adrenal fatigue, right?
My question, does adrenal function tend to fluctuate? Can they be working well for a month and then droop for a month? I have tried addressing this from so many angles, this is just another one.
I am working on getting medicaid, which I just found out we may qualify for and if we get it, I would love to see an endocrinologist. If one of those docs checks my hormone levels and finds some numbers out of whack, what then? Is there a way to regulate hormones without hormone therapy? (I am taking Vitex) Is hormone therapy safe?
Thanks so much if you can help, I appreciate it more than you know!
