Went off hydrocortisone , Now I need help.

I would like to ask you for help with supplementing for severe adrenal issues,

I was on a low dose of hydrocortisone for about 2 years for low adrenal. It helped tremendously for a good while. However recently, I started experiencing major depression, blood Sugar problems, and inability to wake up , feeling extreme heaviness in the morning.

I stopped cold turkey along with an anti-depressant. Since then, I have had pain in the abdomen and inflammation around the adrenals in the front of the belly an inch above the button on both sides. My body started having inflammation again in the gut and cystic Acne started. It is clear that cortisol levels are still low since this inflammation has returned. Please note I may never produce normal cortisol levels on my own. ( I was on asthma steroids in my formative years)
Some history:
consistent low cortisol over the years. with typical symptoms of low blood pressure, low thyroid, intolerance to potassium, etc
low estrogen,
low testosterone,
low dhea,
high progesterone.

I am confused about hormone supplementation.
I have PMS 10 starting 10 days before period, painful cramps, cystic Acne during period or ovulation.
Do I supplement with progesterone even though the symptoms suggest high? And the history of test has been high? However, progesterone does play a role in making estrogen.

Thanks for your input
