So, as you may well already be aware, I have adrenal fatigue along with hypothyroidism. Adrenal fatigue is usually a condition that you can resolve, and often keep at bay in future. I follow instructions on how to do this mentioned in James Wilson’s book, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome.
So, I take Seriphos, which is an over the counter supplement, that lowers high cortisol (what I have) and I take it once a day with dinner. Apart from yesterday.
I realised this morning when I woke up feeling hot and sweaty, with a pounding heart, anxious, weak and light-headed, that something wasn’t right. I used to get these symptoms before starting Seriphos. After an hour or so, I realised that I had forgot to take my Seriphos the night before.
Adrenal dysfunction shows signs of those above, as well as fatigue, trouble sleeping, waking up feeling particularly bad in the morning as well as lots more symptoms.
So, I’ve going to skip the dose and just take my next one at dinner time as usual. Hopefully I’ll feel better as the day goes on and wake up feeling better tomorrow!
So annoyed at myself, though!
For those of you asking, this is where I get Seriphos from – Seriphos, Phosphorylated Serine, 100 Capsules – InterPlexus Inc

I run a Facebook group, called Thyroid Family: Hypothyroidism Advice & Support Group. This group is for underactive thyroid/hypothyroidism patients only, and not medical professionals or anyone else. If you have any questions on living with hypothyroidism, or want some support, help or advice, please join us.
I also run a group for the spouses, partners and other halves of hypothyroid patients, called Hypothyroid Patients Other Halves – Support & Advice Group. This is for the other halves only and not patients.
