Thanks for the replies. I've been on the phone with doctors telling them that I'm worried about losing my job - some mornings I just can't get out of bed. It's annoying - I mean, I want to be good at my job, I love my job - I don't WANT to be in bed half of the day, I just get sooooooooooo tired. It bugs me because it seems like people's responses are "we're all tired." I get that, I'm a single mom and it's always been tough, but the last 2 years have been horrible.

Anyway, I got into a different PA, who ran a CBC and another damn thyroid test - even tho I told her that's been normal all along. She did dismiss the salivary tests saying I need a serum cortisol and said to keep the appt in December with the Endo. Duh - I want that appt - just wish it was sooner. Sigh...the fight is about out of me. I'm being a pain to the poor secretaries of my Dr.s and am starting to think maybe it all is just psychosomatic....maybe I do just need to suck it up and push through the week.

The high DHEAs has me worried too - I've read a couple of things that suggest that a high DHEA coupled with low prog/testosterone could be a marker for adrenal cancer. I suppose everyone thinks they're in crisis though...just really wish I could get on the right tx regimen and get better, already!
