"Me" is coming back

I just wanted to quick post that since Wednesday of this past week I have felt a tremendous peace and joy! Now, it is not like it is when I am 'normal' but it is such a stark difference than how I have been feeling!

I love feeling like 'me'. I told you, I am happy, joyful, hopeful, excited, passionate. Oh, and the peace and quiet thing is a new thing for me. Wednesday I should have been pretty out of it considering the past two days events, but I wasn't. I woke up feeling hope and joy. I was able to have an unbelievable wonderful morning with the children. I spoke softly. I was patient. I was not 'bugged' by all the things that were not done, I just went about, enlisting help gently and we got things done.

The joy and hope has continued. I am so thankful! I know it is lots of GRACE, but I also wonder how much the adding back in of the tryptophan was a factor. I don't care, it just feels good to feel good!!

Wouldn't it be great of 2010 was the year of the "return of me"? I don't mean like self, or that there is anything wonderful about 'me', I just mean to feel like the 'me' God created!

Praising God for His mercy and goodness, in the valleys and on the mountaintops.


  1. So glad you're feeling better.
    Recovering from adrenal fatigue is a series of ups and downs. Just remember that as you continue to heal, you will begin to have more and more good days. Hold on to them and remember them when the bad days come along so you will be encouraged that you ARE getting better.

    I too am looking forward to this new year and I'm purposing to put concentrated effort into getting well and focusing on the things that will point me in that direction. God is giving me fresh purpose and perseverance!


  2. So glad to hear this Michelle! May God bring you back to total health in 2010.
