Just found out in the last year I have Addison's. At first I was really upset to find out this is a lifelong disease, but as time wears on i'm getting used to it. (i think) The biggest problem i have is the weight loss, went from 150lbs. to my present weight of 79lbs. no matter what i do or eat, i can't gain any weight. we own a resturant and all my customer's laugh cuz i'm so thin. (don't trust a skinny cook, haha) anyway i'm glad other people have the same problem and there is somewhere to go to have comfort. thanks
I had the same problem at one time, but once my meds were straightened out and I started feeling better, I started gaining weight. Not sure if that's good news or not, but now I tend to need to lose a few pounds. Menapause doesn't help matters, either!
