I have been looking for an AF support group – first one I found – to dialogue with those who understand. I was diagnosed a couple years ago, after years of not being taken seriously by MDs. I am from Ontario. I look forward to reading your posts.
I am definitely on the road of recovery, but wondering if I am fully recovered… does one ever fully recover? Or is it like any other chronic illness, where it is for life. Although I have felt much better, I admit, I am not the same as I was energy wise. I’ve always been a go, go, go kind of gal — but not too much, as I also balance life with downtime.
A number of years ago, I was able to escape toxic environments – work, home, and community – yes I had it all! It was like I fell into an abyss, as no matter where I turned my life was under constant stressors. Despite positive environmental changes, my health took an extreme downturn. Thankfully, I found a cost effective naturalpathic clinic who diagnosed me with AF, and an MD who believes in diagnosis outside of the traditional realm. I also have a great partner who is so supportive. However, though recovered – I think? – I am noting some fatigue crawling back. I am trying to be hopeful but also have to be smart. I wonder what other life changes I can make.
Has anyone else gone through this or have any insight?
Hi MaryU, that’s a great question! In my experience, yes a full recovery is certainly possible.
However, one thing to remember is whatever caused your adrenal fatigue might not fully go away. So there might be underlying stressors, a tendency towards unhealthy eating, an anxious personality, or even a persistent hormone imbalance. Anything like that might continue beyond the end of your treatment and leave you susceptible to getting adrenal fatigued again.
It sounds like you are on the right track!
Do you find yourself constantly fatigued, and struggling to get out of bed in the mornings? Do you feel unable to cope with stressful situations? If so, you might be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
