This is a statement healthy people will never understand. It is part of the reason I believe it is so vital to tell kids if they have autism. I am happy I am sick because I feel absolutely dreadful, but if I’m sick and it has a name I might get better.
I have heard that some people don’t struggle to do things each & every day, I have been told that some people are not in pain everyday. I don’t remember being like that, I don’t have childhood memories that don’t include pain & struggle. Even though knowing I have autism hasn’t relieved much pain or struggle. The knowledge gave me a better path to try, help and understanding.
So in some previous posts I may have mentioned that I have been tired, headachey, that I judge hunger by fainting, nap almost every afternoon, blah,blah. So I have been frightened that the therapy wasn’t working and that I’m never going to be able to get anything done.
But the blood tests came back; and I am low in thyroid & cortisone. I have low blood pressure still as well. So why am I so happy; the symptoms that have been intensifying lately are all explained by adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is the result of long term high stress; which I’ve had.
The big thing is if I have adrenal fatigue or even thyroid problems they are treatable. If I just can’t do better no matter how hard I try then I’ll never do better. But if I’m held back by a medical condition with a treatment, there is hope. So much hope!
Energy, more time awake is really all I need. Pain; blah, blah, who cares! But being awake long enough to read emails, write & speak to my children; that would be priceless!
So the wonderful, tremendous, fantastic news is; da da da daa; I might be really sick!
Cross your fingers for me, next blood test is 4 weeks away.
Bad news though my computer’s malaise is getting bad fast and is defying diagnosis.
4 hours to do a 40 minute post but I’m not complaining; alright I am complaining & shouting ; but instead of violence I lay down with a hot pack. I think I am improving!
