My story

[p]In July 2020, after being ill for 3 months, I was diagnosed with Addison's Disease.[/p][p]Addison's Disease is an autoimmune condition where your adrenal glands no longer secrete vital hormones that keep you alive. The 2 hormones I have missing are cortisol and aldosterone. Cortisol regulates your appetite, blood sugar and food matabolism. Aldosterone regulates sodium, fluid balance and blood pressure. [/p][p]I'd lost 1.5 stone in weight, my hair was falling out in clumps, I couldn't eat because I would retch if I tried, I was fatigued, dizzy, had spasms in my legs and my skin was darker than it had ever been before. I was heading for an adrenal crisis. A simple sick bug, flu, stress or injury can tip an adrenal patient into a crisis. I now live on 2 types of steriods daily. I carry an emergency injection kit with me everywhere I go. [/p][p]In the grand scheme of things, I'm ok. Medication is working for me and I'm still able to do the one thing I love; run. Other people with this condition aren't so lucky.[/p][p]I'm raising money for Addisons Self Help Group because when I was diagnosed they provided so much information and support from their website, newsletter, Facebook, published book and forums. They work hard to spread the word of this rare disease and fund amazing research; one of which is working on producing an EpiPen for our emergency injection kits. This charity kept me going through the pandemic and taught me everything I need to know to stay well and stay safe.[/p][p]I will run, walk or crawl my way around a 26.2 mile route in Huddersfield.[/p][p]Please support if you can to help all adrenal insufficiency patients.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p][br][/p][p]Update: 26/07/2021[/p][p]This weekend I took part in the Conti Thunder Run. I completed 4 x 10k laps in 24 hours as part of a team. This was a great training opportunity for the marathon and to test fueling and updosing my Hydrocortisone. It went so well and I'm now excited for the marathon ❤?[/p][p][br][/p]
