I'm Still Here!
Though my adrenal glands are working now, I know I will always have to be very careful in my life or I can over stress my adrenals again and be back where I was before. Will I ever forget the lessons I learned while I had Addison's Disease? No! I am still here to answer the questions you might have and to offer encouragement to you who have stressed adrenal glands. If you have had a tumor, or some other damage to your adrenal glands, cutting down your stress and carefully managing your medications will help you feel better, but your adrenal glands will probably not function again. Most of us suffer damage to our adrenals by the incredible amount of stress we experience in our lives. My doctor told me that if my adrenal glands were not destroyed but only suppressed by some stress, they could heal if I could find the source of the stress and eliminate it. I confess that I was very skeptical. I had been so ill for so long. I was afraid to hope. It took me years, and a lot of help from the Lord, but I finally learned that I had many allergies, chemical sensitivities, extensive mold in my basement, and many negative relationships. When I eliminated this huge weight of stress, my adrenal glands did heal! If you have any questions about living with Addison's Disease, low adrenal function, or about healing, remember, "I am still here!"
