Around the end of May of this year (2014) I was diagnosed with PCOS. At first I wasn’t exactly sure what to think. I felt so lost and confused. I am 19 years old and hope to have a family one day. Knowing that my chances could be slim is having me feel really depressed. I am still getting use to this whole thing and I feel like I am losing my mind sometimes trying to figure it all out.
I look things up about it. I even bought some books on it. My doctor said losing weight would help me out a great deal and so would watching my sugar intake. Just curious if someone has any additional information on how I can get through this. How can I lose the weight that I’ve been struggling for years to get rid of? Is their a certain dieting I should go by? There are just so many questions with no answers to them yet. I am staying positive and I tell myself everyday I can get through this, but some days the pain is so horrifying I just don’t know. Any advice? It would be greatly appreciated it.
I don’t plan on giving up, I plan on fighting to beat the odds.
