I've missed a few days, SORRY! We were out of town on a crazy-busy trip where I didn't even see a computer (even though we brought a laptop with us!), and I was very, very exhausted and sore when I got home. I went AI one night on our trip, hard and fast, and that was scary. I had to stress-dose before I could sleep, wait for it to "wake me up" a bit...I'd really say it was more like it made my head less sludgy and more clear. Then I went to sleep and slept well.
So yesterday I just stayed in bed to try to recover from the trip. If it weren't for my doctor's appointment this morning, I would definitely have preferred to stay in bed as long as possible today.
In relating my experience to my friends, one responded: "Making yourself do stuff is a good reminder of how little your body can actually do without falling apart." Wow. I expected the soreness and tiredness, but was shocked at just how sore and exhausted I was. And, the AI wasn't so pleasant, just sayin'. All my life I was the kind of person who'd just push to get the job done, but Cushing's eventually made that impossible. If I push myself, I crash...and it's the kind of crash that can be life-threatening, and even with the proper medication, can take many days to really fully recover from.
