How I'm feeling:

sleepy
lethargic/unmotivated/lack of get-up-and-go
sore neck and back
sore, kind of itchy eyes that are tired
sniffly nose
sore muscles here and there
very dry lips

Hmm...allergens make a person inflamed. I wonder if that could be what's up w/ my muscles, because I sure haven't exercised!

Weird but I have very dry lips as well and the eye thing. It's especially bad tonight. I wonder if it's the dry air??? As for energy I am surprised at how good I am doing. I have been there before though Wendy on LC. Not sure what I am doing different this time but it's different in a good way! The only thing I can think of is that I am eating MUCH less fast food (like burgers without a bun) and more simple foods like chicken or broccoli or eggs, bacon, cheese, simple things. Not sure that's it or not. Last time around I ate a lot of the fast food LC stuff. I don't think you do that much so doubt if that's it with you

Are you eating anything that could bother your allergies? Or did you say? Sorry, I am ready to go to bed! I am probably ont even making sense.

NIGHT! LOVE YOU!

Wendy--I'm sorry you're having allergies to deal with cause you're doing so well. I know you'll figure it out cause I have faith in you.

I'm struggling with my fatigue and sadness. I don't know if it's all the stress w/dh and my job or what. I'm still on plan but it's not as good as it was last week. My weight is up and down 3 or more pounds in a day. I don't know what to do but don't want to change anything yet. I just can't seem to ever feel rested. Ugh. Sorry for complaining.

I was very tired at the beginning of last winter--couldn't get rested. Dr. told me to start taking IsoCort for adrenal fatigue. That was my problem, and I'm so glad that he figured it out. I'm so sorry that you're feeling this way. I'm not saying that you have the same problem, but I wanted to mention it in case it's a place to start, AND to let you know that I understand, even if it's from a different cause. Do you think that it's from depression? Do you have anything that you can do about that?

If you suspect or want to read about adrenal fatigue, here's a website w/ a chart of symptoms. Again, I'm not saying that you have this problem, just presenting information. Then, again, you do sound like you've been a lot like me--go, go, go...do for others...give, give, give even at the expense of your own health and a lack of relaxation, until you just have problems doing it anymore. I used to work constantly. From the moment I woke until I went to sleep, I was cleaning or doing something. Wasn't a good idea, it turns out. So, it does seem that it could be a possibility for you from what I know--which might not be a lot.

You are so sweet. I take A.D. but don't know if this is from the depression or not. I've been fatigued so long but it seems to have gotten worse. How much IsoCort do you take? I do have thyroid issues and adrenal failure too. I am hypothyroid. Ugh. I go back to my dr the beginning of Feb. I don't know what to do but I'm not giving up.

Look what I found about IsoCort:
Returning the adrenal function back to a healthy state may take anywhere from 6 to 18 months depending on the individual condition and degree of commitment to the healing process. The rewards are many. Allergic persons in most cases become much less sensitive to allergens, those with chronic inflammatory complaints improve greatly, fatigued persons return to more reliable levels of energy and stamina.
Significant improvement can usually be felt within 3-21 days after initiating regular use of Iso Cort as directed. In most cases persons bothered with constant fatigue or afternoon drowsiness are able to be alert and productive for the entire day.

TODAY'S WEIGHT

annoying










OK, so it's 185.5.

I got down to 183, left my beloved scale, got upto 186.5 and it seems to want to stick up there instead of down where it was. I liked saying that I had lost 30 lbs. Oh well. I haven't been drinking as much water as I should to combat water retention, and my stomach is swollen--really think that's from dairy--so that might be even more water retention?

Today is my first dairy-free day.

Good information! Thanks for sharing! I SHOULD have been on IsoCort for around a year now, but I forgot to take it from August(?) until a few weeks ago. I didn't start feeling the effects of a lack of it until winter--same as last year. It does start helping almost immediately, but I have to remember to take it twice/day for a couple of weeks or I WILL be tired!

Yes, don't give up! I take 2 twice/day. Dr. recommended taking them away from food if possible, but he stressed that it's more important to just take them! If that means w/ or close to meals, then so be it. So, I usually take 2 between breakfast and lunch, and then 2 before dinner, but if I take them w/ a meal, I don't worry about it. I haven't noticed a difference in regard to timing of taking them and meals--not saying that there isn't one, though. I have read on LCF that some people DO notice a difference so they have to take it w/o food.

Sometimes that happens.

Do you read many of nonstickpam's posts about thyroid and doctors? She seems to have a lot of good information. Makes me sometimes, though. I need to write things down to get them sorted sometimes. Just reading lists of tests to get done...well, the info gets lost in my head.

How many times I do stuff just like this! I'll be thinking what in the world am I going to do about "such and such" and then think well if I do THIS (doh) then it has helped before, why am I denying that? It's not necessarily just with food allergies either. One good example is that I LOVE hot baths and I take one most every day and even twice. Well I had forgotten sort of that it aggravates my eczema and makes me scratch like crazy (even though this is not the only time). I NEED to stop them but I asked myself today, "Can I REALLY give up something that I love so much?" It makes me think how smokers must feel and drug addicts. "Hello I am Sharon and I am a bathaholic" and and

Poor Chewie! I sure hope this helps you!!! NO ONE should have to be like that! It seems as if your doctor has had long enough to try these things to not make much difference that is if you are doing everything he says. Are you? And did you take all your supplements today? If you can't take them or tolerate them you need to tell him when you go because he is treating you relying on the info you give him KWIM? Not chastising you just trying to help hon, HATE to see you going through it!!!

EXACTLY!!! So many times...don't get me started!!!

Good day, right on plan still:

2 pieces of fried bologna with cheese
1 boiled egg with salt
1 can of tuna in water with mayo and SF sweet relish
A handful of pumpkin seeds

159.5 this morning. Oh well! I have NO cravings for anything sweet AT ALL! It's amazing! I remember how I loved that about Atkins before, how I just have to make myself eat my meals and not LIVE for them!

Lucy, I am taking my supplements and after doing more research think I need a prescription adrenal med over the one that Wendy takes. I go to the dr the beginning of Feb so I'll discuss this then. I did stick with my plan but think I may have had a lil too much cheese today. Oh well, live and learn, right? Good night

I laughed at that, but knock it off!!

Good day, right on plan still:

...159.5 this morning. Oh well! I have NO cravings for anything sweet AT ALL! It's amazing! I remember how I loved that about Atkins before, how I just have to make myself eat my meals and not LIVE for them!
Good for you! Tell that scale to get with it, OK? It's frustrating when it just sits there, isn't it? Hooray for a lack of sugar-cravings!

I don't know, but it tastes good, I don't need to prepare it, and it's filling! If you read about coconut oil it's the new "cure-all" but I don't believe everything that I read, so I just go w/ the idea that it's good for me, and I like it, so I cook w/ it and/or eat it. Oh, and it makes great lotion as long as you use it very sparingly.

WTG sticking to your plan!
