How life has changed since discovering I have an Adrenal Disorder
Since I was diagnosed with this type of disorder my life has greatly improved on how I feel every day. I do have more energy but still find myself unable to do the things most normal teens can do. There are many things I have to do every day to get and stay healthy. I have to wake up at 6:00 AM every day to take medicine and have to take many different types of medicines throughout the day. There are many foods that interact with how I feel each day and foods I have to limit along with being on a gluten and dairy free diet. Often times my adrenal levels can be thrown off from the simplest things. It usually takes days for me to recover and I am usually unable to communicate, move, or go anywhere outside the house. These are just some of the things I deal with every day and am still learning to manage. Through all of this I have always found a way to be positive, keep fighting, and never give up. Although this disorder is very hard to live with I feel like it has definitely made me who I am today. Overcoming this obstacle has made me feel like I can overcome anything. All I want to do is help others so they don't have to go through what I did with either Celiac or this disorder. I couldn't be more grateful and happy to be alive today and I'm very happy that I could share this other half of my story with you. Thanks for reading and I hope this helped you learn a little more about me!
