so much for gluten free

I've been thinking the past few days about certain things that have been happening with me, and finally reviewed some research I had done previously, and I'm thinking that my current crop of problems (including the rapid transit) may be related to my adrenals kicking out again.

I noticed a few weeks ago that my dark spot (velvety patch on my left ankle) is back in full force. It was gone for a very long time, and now it's back. This says to me that my system is very much out of whack, and the only thing that makes it go away is going back on the Cortef. So as of today I'm back on it. I'll give this a week to see if it helps.

My research linked "rapid transit" and absorption problems to adrenal dysfunction as well. Since every other test is coming back negative, is it so unreasonable to think that maybe this old problem has surfaced again?

So I took some Cortef with lunch and we'll see how it goes. Lunch was a club sandwich from Chick-Fil-A. I have never been there before. It was quite good, actually, but I can't believe I ate all that bread. Or that they put HFCS in their mayo. Bastards! Anyway, next time I know to ask for extra lettuce and I'll be able to eat it protein style (ala In-n-Out Burger). I thought for probably an entire minute about eating the bread. It appeared to be whole-wheat-ish, not that that really matters. I just decided, my gut has been as bad as it has ever been (if not worse) over the past 4 days so it really isn't going to make things worse eating this bread, is it? So I ate it.

The moms from DD's class are getting together for a happy hour tonight at 5. That just so does not work for me. Tomorrow the teachers are meeting whoever wants to attend for breakfast at 8AM. These days I am still in bed at 8, but I will get up early tomorrow and bring DD... she will really enjoy it, and it is her last day at her pre-school. Not mine, though, as DS2 still has 2 years ahead of him, there.

I'm not ready for it to be summer yet.
