I can not say I ever thought I would be “joining” one of these groups. I never thought I would mentally reach this point where I just don’t know what to do. That said, having read some of the posts and what some of you all have makes me feel a little less “alone”.
So I post here, in hopes that someone might have some suggestions. And simply- because I feel that I am headed down the path of depression simply due to illnesses…including PCO(S).
Around age 14/15 I was diagnosed with PCOS and I actually have polycystic ovaries as well. I have only twice gotten my period natrually in my entired life. I am now 24. This seems to have been the beginning of what is a very long road ahead. The problem being, is that I can’t tell how many of my problems all go back to it or not. Here’s a list…
-Iliotibial Band Syndrome (which may be due to walkin improperly, because of being overweight and PCOS)
-MANY MANY allergies (penicillin, nuts, oral allergy syndrome, etc.)
-Chronic sinus infections
-Reoccuring elevated levels of the epstein barr virus
-I am always tired and can sleep for hours- even when the EB is not active
-Lactose has made me sick in the past and still does when eaten in larger amounts
-Many ear infections as a child
-Fat deposits on my liver
-Possible excersize induced asthema
For all of this I am on:
Yasmin, Metformin, Xyzal, Singular, Nasacourt, Astelin, Probiotics
Things just seem to keep deteriorating. Everyone just tells me “your a mess” and no one is actually helping me fix the problem. I am overweight- although the metformin did help me lose some weight. My allergies limit a lot of what I can/can’t eat.
And I have NO energy after work to do anything. I simply do not even know what to do. And how much of this is really related to PCOS? And why does it seem that everyone with PCOS has such a long list of medical conditions?
So, any help/support and anything anyone might have to offer would be fantastic. I never thought that pcos would be such an issue in my life. But it is time to get control over it before it controls me…
Thanks for reading!
