Alas, I've decided not to attend the Ancestral Health Symposium, happening later this week.
My adrenal insufficiency is a huge problem for me right now, and even with adrenal supplements, an easy schedule, and good sleep, I'm feeling sleepy and lethargic most of the time. Travel exacerbates the problem like nothing else: I've still not dug myself out of the hole that I dug myself visiting family in late June.
So I fear that the AHS would not just be miserable and exhausting for me but also put me in a significant worse state. I hate to cancel, particularly at the last minute. I'm sorry that I'll be missing some sure-to-be-awesome lectures, as well as chatting with paleo folks. Nonetheless, it seems like the only sensible decision.
