PCOS NOT I?!?!?
Hey you all. My name is Amber I'm 20 I found out when I was 17 years old that I had PCOS
My DR acted like it was nothing. So being a teenager I didn't do much to look into it.
I noticed that I had a little abnormal hair on my tummy and back but didn't think anything of it...until May 2008 when I lost my child at birth.
I felt horrible, like I was not a woman anymore because the Dr told me it was due to my PCOS.
So I started looking into it and watching stuff on it. Realized how serious it can really get so I got scared and hid myself from the world like some lost puppy.
I realized there are more women in this world with it and looked up this site.
I'm a tad bit over weight (my weight goes up and down like a roller coaster). One year I'm skinny the next I'm huge again. I don't get it.
I'm currently fresh out of college and just finally got my life straight. Got me a job etc and hopefully I'll be able to get on Insurance so I can start on my road to recovery.
It was nice to read about you-all's stories and figure out I'm not alone. When you the only one in your family that has it, it's scary. Anyways I wanted to thank you all for kinda giving me the support I needed to keep going. I was beyond giving up. Thanks again
