The cycle from hell is ending. I’ve never been happier to get my period in my entire life.
After 71 gruelling days of having no clue what my body was doing, I went to the naturopath yesterday. He confirmed my doctor’s suspicions of PCOS, and I really felt validated. The questions I was being asked were exactly what I wanted, and I realized that all of my research hasn’t been in vain. I do have PCOS. I AM insulin-resistant. Losing weight IS going to be difficult. But there are methods to help with that.
Within eight hours of taking my first dose of homeopathic medicine, I started spotting. I don’t know if its a coincidence, or if these things work THAT quickly, but OH MY WORD. Its finally happening! This cycle will FINALLY be over.
I also had a bit of insight. The extreme depression I was feeling this week, the general sense of helplessness, was most likely related to PMS. My mental health symptoms always take a nose-dive the week before my period, and I really should have seen that.
I can’t thank you all enough for your incredible comments on my last post. I think I’m so used to just pouring my thoughts onto a page, convincing myself that no one is reading and no one really cares. But the outpouring of support really validated what I’m doing – you guys aren’t just here to look at yummy pictures of food, or because you’re one of my close friends and feel obligated. There are some of you who genuinely care about how I’m doing, and what’s going on in my life. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
That’s all for now. Just thought I’d update you all…you’re wonderful.
