Adrenal Fatigue

Recommended Posts

So, I have every reason to believe I have adrenal fatigue. I'll list some triggers below, so you can skip it if you dont want to read my way-too-long writing. What I found on line, tho, was rather limited. I seem to remember it said to rest a lot and avoid any stimulating supplements (that was what first made me drop my sam-e, and i'm also off caffiene right now)

Are there any other things to help get over adrenal fatigue?

(list of stressful events between lines)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why adrenal fatigue? first marriage, which started on a non-violent commune, ended w me charging him w assault and getting a protective order, which was devestating. Being a single mom isnt as much fun as they say it is. Then I got laid off, heart broken and laid off again in the following year. Then I moved to the 'big city' (and got shingles becuase i so overdid it during the move), fell in love, got pregnant, got married, quit work, had a baby (my third), bought a house and moved, went back to work because hubby's green card was delayed, hated having a baby in daycare . .. baby had ear surgery, husband announced he didnt want to be married . . . around this time, middle child was dx'd w about 6 different psych disorders . . . 6 mo of fighting w hubby and me crying hysterically several times a day, he moved out for 3 mo, then came back . .. and 6 mo later he told me i could quit work.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I finally had a chance to start to decompress from all this, and decided I should also address my food issues. I've been home since June and I do feel so much better . .. but I feel like i'm not ready to go back to work yet, i still dont like my energy level or mood, but it IS better when i'm not glutened . . . anything else I might want to try? Note, supplements are now being added like a food on an elimination diet, only 1 food (or supplement or spice) every 4 days. I just added flax seed oil, but thats my only one right now. I did try a multi-B and reacted to it.

thanks
