Hi my name is Jessica and I just found out last Thursday (1/28/10) that I have PCOS.
I didn’t know what that was, I never even heard of it before that day. I have the best doctor in the world. He set right next to me as if he was a friend and not across the room like my past other doctors. I started by telling him about how I gain almost 100 pounds since 2004.
I also told him how irregular I am. Then he notice the hair and my face and asked me how long has it been growing. Then he went on telling me I have most of the symptoms of PCOS. He explained it to me somewhat and told me to go home and look it up. He put me on metformin and birth control and I went and had a lot of blood work done. I had already changed the way I was eating because I had planes on changing my lifestyle anyway. I was so happy to finally find out what’s been so wrong with my body for the past 6 or 7 years.
Then I started reading up on it and found myself getting down and sadder about it. Right now I just feel like no one understands. I tried to tell my best friend about it but she just seems to be absent when I really need a friend right now. I’ve been crying my eyes out for the past two days. I think it’s because a lot of what ifs are running through my mind right now.
But I know just like everything else that comes unexpected in my life that I will get through it with the grace of God. I do look forward to dropping all this extra weight. I will keep you all posted and please keep in touch with me and I will do the same…..Glad to be a part of this family. Let’s stick together.
