I had extreme adrenal fatigue and barely made it through my day. I would wake up and peel myself out of the bed, motivated only by the fact that once I got through my work day I could crawl right back in. I called it “living in survival mode”. My cortisol levels were completely off. I couldn’t sleep through the night even though I was beyond exhausted. My thyroid was failing, I developed a goiter and hypothyroidism. I lost my period (for 4 years) and was an anxious, mental wreck in a constant brain fog. Sound miserable? Well...it was.
