Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 164

By Jungledog · Dec 27, 2014 · ·
  1. Ok sorry I was fixing dinner. My labs that I had drawn Friday show my thyroid too low and very low cortisol. This is from persistent, sustained stress. I may need to actually start taking steroids to raise it. I am planning to up the thyroid medication and really cleaning up my diet and my life.

    While it may seem easy or obvious that I should leave my marriage but it is neither and I find that everyone tends to offer advice based on their own experience. My divorced friends, who I might add are really not overly happy post divorce, advise me to leave. The married ones who have faced major fucking issues but made it through and who are happy, tell me to get help. If I hated him, I guess it would be easier but I don't.

    Anyhow, yes repleting low testosterone will make you feel much better. It did for me the first few months but the rest of the adrenal cascade remains broken for me and so the energy didn't last. This is because my cortisol levels dropped. It is my wake up call to change my life. If we can't turn it around, then we will separate.

    Yeah. That really upset me and wasn't necessary. It made me cry and kinda ruined my day.

    I get that I don't know as much as you. I do, however, research thoroughly the medications that I put into my body. In this instance, scam or not, testosterone has helped me, and I will continue with the treatment until it no longer does so. I believe there is a place for both natural and pharmaceutical remedies. I do not believe that one is better than the other, rather just different approaches that can be merged to find a balance.

    Your friends are offering advice because they see you hurting and want to help. Nobody is going to give you the perfect advice because they are not you, and cannot. However, they love you enough to offer, and that, my friend, is a very good thing. I seriously doubt anyone that has gone through divorce considers it easy or uncomplicated. I haven't met any, and mine certainly wasn't. Just as most people think marriage is going to fix all of their problems, many think that divorce it's going to as well. I know you are smart enough to realize that neither is true. Happiness comes from within, however, who we share our lives with can impact that considerably.

    Yes, it's a lonely place you are in. The decisions that need to be made can only be made by you. That's what makes it so dark. Whichever way you decide to go I think you know that you will find love and support here.

    I hope you evening goes a little better. I need to get back to my sons room, I took a break to check on you. Take a deep breath, a hot bath or a long walk. I know it doesn't feel like it, but it does get better.
