Hi michelle! My name is Nydia and I am also new at all of this-I couldn't help but reading your blog and just feeling the same way you do. I too have been suffering from adrenal hypofunction (as i was diagnosed) for about over a year now but I have been having these symptoms since I was 16 yrs old, and I am now 25 am barely starting to get better. When I was younger, the doctors kept telling me "It's all in your head, your not really feeling these things" until one day I actually find a dr that listens to me and ran some tests to see that it is something real. I knew that whole time, I was physically feeling ill-weak all the time, overly fatigued, having to be on bedrest for weeks at a time, it was exhausting! I still have my episodes about once or twice a month, but am currently seeking treatment for them. Along with the adrenal thing, I also have a hormonal imbalance-my progesterone level is very low which I am also under hormone therapy tx with the use oformone pills every month which seem to be helping. I just wanted to say, I know and understand what you are going through, I know what it feels like to just want to give up sometimes and be frustrated but we have to keep moving forward and have faith that one day we will overcome all of this and be strong. I would love to hear from you and see what your symptoms are. Its nice to talk to someone who truly understands. hope to hear from you soon!-Nydia
