I am not a big fan of journaling but things have been crazy in my life lately and I know that I need an outlet so I decided to give this blog a try. I want to share my story but before I can go back I have to start at the present.
Over the last few months I have been struggling with my physical health. I was having a lot of nausea and vomiting. Of course I was stubborn and did not get myself check out until a couple of months later, but I am glad that I finally did because this appointment may be life changing for me. I want to keep everything that is going on straight and process it right here and maybe share this blog with other people dealing with some of the same issues. So here we go.
At my recent doctor appointment for my stomach problems the doctor decided to run some test, you know the test the chem panel, thyroid levels, and also my kidney function as I am also a diabetic. Before she let me leave her office she became thoughtful and told me that she wanted to also do another test for a rare condition. She stated that she did not think I had this condition but she just felt like it would be good to run it. I am glad she did because I might get answers years in the making. She ran a test to check my cortisol levels. She did not give me any information about what this would mean for me. I let it go and went home with my test that I needed to complete between the hours of 11 and midnight. So much fun getting up in the middle of the night and sucking on a cotton swab for 2 mins. The next day I dropped off the test and really did not think anything more about it as my other tests came back normal. The medication the doctor had given me was for acid reflux and it was working so nothing to worry about. Until…..
