Margie,
I'm also dealing with several CF-type exercisers who are dealing with adrenal deficiency/hypofunction. If you take a week off, get proper sleep, reduce coffee/stimulant use, and do things to reduce your stress--and this combo makes you feel significantly better, that's a good sign of this.

Also, having a lot of trouble getting out of bed in the morning and/or having trouble falling asleep at night are indicators of a dysfunctional cortisol rhythm. It can be fixed, with proper work.
