    I blush to admit that I have been woefully ignorant about the adrenal gland until today.

    Because so many of you mention it, I thought I'd best find out something about it and got some information about "adrenal fatigue" and "adrenal exhaustion" and the debate about same. It seemed to me as though the only debate was whether or not a sub-clinical adrenal disease existed so I searched Addison's.

    Addison's disease seems to me to be almost indistinguishable from ME. And, before mid century most Addison's disease was caused by Tuberculosis. Is ME Addison's disease triggered by an infection?

    I ask your indulgence re my ignorance.

    Thanks much,
