Did the doctors figure out why I was so ill? No. I've been to many doctors and had many, many tests. They showed nothing. Everything was low, but not out of the normal range. I was at the point that I was resigned to just working on my computer the rest of my life. Then in April of 2015, I had this strong impression that I should start checking my blood sugar several times a day. It seemed ok. The next day it was a little higher. The next day it went up 80 points after a balanced, low carb, diabetic meal! I felt extremely ill. A thought came to my mind that my hydrocortisone dose for Addison's Disease was too high and that I shouldn't take my last dose that day. I didn't, actually I was afraid to! The next day I cut it another 5mg under my doctor's guidance. Now what? I had no idea, but I did feel that I needed to do research. I wasn't sure what I was to research, so I just began. I looked up blood sugar, diabetes, and hypoglycemia. When I came to Insulin Resistance, I felt that was it! I read more and found that besides cutting my dose of hydrocortisone, I needed to really cut down on carbs for a while (still have good fats), and I needed to exercise at least an hour at a time daily. I tried it and it worked! My blood sugar slowly stabilized, and I began to feel better than I have in ages.
I know that some people might think that it is odd to somehow "know" what to do, but I just did. I am not that brilliant that I could have figured it out myself. That is obvious since I have been ill for over 45 years and never understood. I feel that I have been very blessed and guided by the Lord to know what to do. It has taken me awhile, but I have learned to just follow the impressions I feel, knowing that later I will understand. I carefully listen to the thoughts and feelings which come after I pray. If I feel a calm peaceful feeling and a strong sense of assurance that my proposed action is right, I know it is what I should do.
