It's a new yr

Well right before Christmas I ended up on two antibiotics but doc's didn't up my hydrocortisone...On the phone with my sis and she says to me I'm having a stroke hand the phone to my daughter. She explained what was going to happen and to let them iin and called 911 for me and I'm half out of it . EMTs get here I don't remember much except standing up and falling back. I was unconscious for the next 18 hours. By not upping my hydrocortisone dose being on 2 antibiotics I had nothing left and had complete adrenal shut down and spent 5 days in the hospital recovering from this. Extremely scary experience. I could have died if I was alone. Or when I fell if I would have hit the wrong item with my head. Driving a car it haunts me to think that I am stuck on this medication for the rest of my life .....
