Well, Anatomydoll, I hate to be rude and am typically not, but you have really pushed by button tonight!! Yeah, I've been living it up alright -- I found out my husband of 21 yrs was having an affair with a 19 yr old girl, I have 6 kids to raise (5 of whom I homeschool), I've been going through a divorce, my dad is abusive to my mom and is a mental case that we don't know what to do about, I've gained about 50 lbs this last year, I've been trying to get my cortisol regulated so that I can function to take care of my kids and household, deal with the stress of being a single parent, and now to top it off, I've been horribly sick and scared with no one to take care of me except my 17 yr old daughter. So, since I know that a lot of people on the forum are very well educated about adrenal crisis and such, I was trying to quickly see if anyone on the forum had any input so that I would be prepared in a crisis since I was so sick. Thank God, I am doing much better, but still sick.
I've been so down and out from adrenal burnout that some days I can't even get out of bed or check e-mail, much less get on a forum to chat. Geez, I sure didn't realize that the forum was a place where everyone who asked for advice was supposed to "check in." So, if you think that sounds like living it up and feeling normal again, you're way off your rocker.
By the way, I appreciate your suggestion about the hydrocortisone cream. I probably won't be back to ask for anymore help or input from this forum, however. You have succeeded in driving away someone who was desperately reaching out for help.
