I've been living with PCOS since I was 19 years old, I am now 30 and it's still here with me. When I was first diagnosed it was very hard to find any kind of information on the subject, but now there's so much it's hard to decide the right course of action. For me, PCOS keeps me overweight (100lbs to be exact) and with some excess hair (mostly on my tummy). I can shave the hair, but I cannot seem to lose the wieght. I feel hopeless, like a failure. I went to a gym and went on the gym diet and after a year of 5-6 days going to the gym and working out at home I had lost 12 pounds. I felt like such a loser and not yay a loser of weght. I felt like I had let myself down. I just got laid off from my job, so now there's no going to doctors for help or nutritionist. I am at a loss. I feel like I'm cursed, I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. It's like why me? But enough feeling sorry for myself...I bought a bicycle and I'm going to start using it everyday (tried walking but my knees hurt too much). I will find the right treatment and beat this thing. So I'm off to ride my bike. Good luck to all in your endeavors today. May we all find peace.
