Is THIS Factor Making You Sick?
Do you get sick often? What about your resistance to catching colds, flu, and infections? For many with fibromyalgia and chronic illness, staying healthy is a daily struggle. And, the factor relating to your adrenal health that we’ll discuss below isn’t helping.
Speaking of adrenal health and the immune system, I hope you’ve already checked out last week’s post on the topic of what – exactly – can tank your immune system. I asked for your vote on which of the 10 issues was the most impactful for you. (Thanks to so many of you who have responded!) If you haven’t seen it yet, would like a review, or would like a chance to vote, check it out here – Immune System Risks.
I plan to let the votes accumulate for at least another week before I declare a winner. Sometimes things just need to percolate a bit.
But, if I were to tally the votes now, it would appear to be a landslide in favor of one concern in particular.
And, that concern is, STRESS.
Stress is a topic that we can discuss in this post and many to follow. In fact, I do talk about it in much greater detail in my Adrenal Summit interview with Glen Depke. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so right away so that you don’t miss my talk — which will be featured tomorrow!

I have toned down the stress a great deal by mainly not letting it get me down no matter what. Relinquishing control of what I have no control of has helped as well. In order to heal more fully, I have had to pull back and pace with grace. I make decisions based on what will either help or hinder me. Brave new world for me. I usually do not get many colds or the flu. Believe the vitamins, exercise, rest, and better attitude are all working together for good. I am getting there though it has been an uphill battle.
Julie — while your journey has been uphill, it sounds like you’ve hit level ground. It’s a tough transition to go from “battle” to grace, but it’s so worth it, and it sounds like you’ve done it well. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for your tender words of encouragement. I find it most helpful to be understood and love the expression of ‘it’s a tough transition to go from ‘battle’ to grace.” There are so many layers as well. But I retain hope.
Julie — you can’t get a better understanding than hearing from someone who’s “been there.” We’ve both “been there” together 😉
