That's the funniest thing I've heard all week. I'm sure I'm gonna have a dream about that tonight. For my first wish I am going to ask for some Erase.

Having had plenty of night shifts with school in years past to compare it with, I gotta contribute that my weeks of using Erase while getting ~3 hours of sleep a day really helped rid my body of the acidy, toxic, creaky feeling I used to get while running on such little sleep.
I'll be ordering more for another run this summer as my budget allows.

how do you really know if you have adrenal fatigue?

Good question. I believe it's a diagnosis of exclusion and/or the outcome from several patient and provider observations. While hormone levels such as cortisol can be tested and can contribute to the diagnosis, unfortunately there is no one single lab test that can give a definitive diagnosis.

If you do an adrenal stress index (ASI) test you can plot your cortisol and DHEA levels over the course of a day by depositing saliva at specific time intervals. This allows you to get a more accurate view of your cortisol rhythms through the day as you need more than one set of numbers taken at one time of the day.
Anything below 'normal' levels can be described as a different stage of adrenal fatigue with complete insufficiency being diagnosed as Addisons's syndrome.
Most self diagnosed cases of adrenaline fatigue are likely to be a consequence of the symptom of lethargy concluding that they are not producing healthy levels of cortisol. It is not this straight forward as someone doesn't have to be low on cortisol all the time. For example, my last ASI showed higher than normal levels upon waking before dropping below normal levels in the evening. Some people can have an inverse cortisol pattern where it starts low in the morning and rises in the evening.
I hope this is helpful.

kind of reminds me of the time I was feeling down and went to the bar and an old wrinkled toothless woman approached me and informed me she was a genie and would grant me 3 wishes, under the condition of once my three wishes were requested I would sleep with her. I made my my three wish request and headed to the bathroom with her. Man it was the nastiest thing I had ever done. The worst part was when I made the comment that I could not believe I was doing this and she replied, I can believe you thought I was a genie
