Mello Monday

Wasn't feeling great today. I have Addison's Disease here's the summary from the Endocrine website:

Addison's disease is an endocrine or hormonal disorder that occurs in all age groups and afflicts men and women equally. The disease is characterized by weight loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, low blood pressure, and sometimes darkening of the skin in both exposed and nonexposed parts of the body.
Addison's disease occurs when the adrenal glands do not produce enough of the hormone cortisol and, in some cases, the hormone aldosterone. The disease is also called adrenal insufficiency, or hypocortisolism.

Anyway, you're treated with daily steroids to replace what your body doesn't make. So when I'm run down, it makes me feel worse. Just tired, and upset stomach, but it's a pain.

Anyway I took more meds and afew hours later I was feeling better.

Scott has bible school this week, so that was nice for him, cause he get super bored around the house. I'm not good at keeping him busy either. There only so much Uno and Bingo I can play in a day.

After school his friends and their mom/grandmom came over for lunch which was fun. At least it didn't rain!

My hubby is staying over night in NJ where he works so he can work late and early tomorrow w/o driving an hour to and from work.

So now the kids are in bed I'm off to knit for an hour.

My mom (Nana to the kids) is coming tomorrow, yea! I'm lucky she comes almost every Tues. I usually run errands and take a nap.

TTYL, Beth
