  1. Good Evening Rebels! So, I have been battling a General Anxiety Disorder for the past 15 years. About 5 years ago I started on a medication (Lexapro) which worked for about a year. Then I switched to Effexor XR. I noticed that there was a slow weight gain. I originally attributed the weight gain to the fact that I had also started back to work at a law firm and did not have as much time to work out. In 2012 I started running and training with a trainer. I ran several 5ks, completed a Warrior Dash and finished my first half-marathon (on a broken foot) in 2013. I felt great. Until the
  2. G'DAY FELLOW REBELS This is like the (calculate that) time I respawn, but with good reason, apparently. After 2 years of continuously struggling with my health and my GP telling me it's all because I'm "psychologically unstable'', I was fed up with it and decided to go to a private clinic abroad, with all the results from lab tests from the past few years. It paid off. Not only did they find I tested positively for Lyme disease OVER A YEAR AGO (can you imagine my GP just overlooked that...) and still do, but they also discovered my T4 levels (thyroid hormone) are way below the minimum,
  3. My main goal is to stay "sane" for the next two weeks between challenges. To acheive this goal, I'm going to: Take my medication daily. Not take on any extra projects. Feed my spirit daily. Attend my addiction recovery program on Thursdays. Attend church on Sundays. 15 minutes of grounding meditation every day.
  4. I'm really not sure where this question belongs, but this seems to be the best place. I've struggled with depression & anxiety for years, and started getting treated about three years back. I started on an anti-depressant that made me much happier and healthier. However, I still had a lot of trouble self-motivating. For instance, I've always wanted to get into shape, but never could convince myself to workout, let alone consistently. About a month ago I changed medications to something more specific to my disorder. Literally within the week I began seriously researching health and nutr
  5. Hi to everyone here on nerd fitness - as you'll see this is my first post- I have just got through reading some information about weight training and I'm pretty eager to start. Long story short life was hard, now I've sorted it and I can actually stick to training and all that's required while doing so. But.. I have one major concern. I have a disease for which I'm given medication for. The medication is an immunosuppressant and stops me from producing adrenaline naturally. It does it by shrinking some gland that produces cortisol. It's called Prednisolone, and yes it's a steroid - but for
  6. I was diagnosed with Adult ADD a month ago and have been taking Adderall. While this has been a great thing for me professionally and as a parent, I have noticed that my motivation to run has dwindled to nothing. I WANT to run, but my body is like "nope, don't care". The other part to this is that I have been putting in extra hours at work, A LOT of extra hours, so by the time I make it home after going in early - skipping lunch - and staying late, I'm falling-asleep-exhausted. The only time I have to run is on the weekends, I "put my hardhat on" and get it done, but my performance sucks a
