I have PCOS I have had it for 16 going on 17 years now,I have depression, insulin resistance, facial hair growth, high testosterone levels and major weight gain. I have only had 6 periods in the last almost 17 years, although i have four beautiful children, which i was told after the first would not happen again. But somehow I have been blessed with being able to atleast become pregnant although doctors are baffled as to how. My life has been changed and effected in a bad way due to this conditioon. I am not the person I used to be. I dont look at myself in a mirror any longer because I do not see me! I see a person that is tired looking ,very fat, ugly!!.My skin is not in good condition anymore i break out all the time and the texture of my skin is horrible. I try not to go out in public, I cant take the comments and stares. This condition has impacted me in a bad way it has changed every aspect of my life. my husband sleeps on the couch and has for years now, our sex life is non existant! He gets upset because i dont by me nice cloths and dress up anymore. He gets mad when we do g to a store because i rush i want in and out within no more than 10-15 mins or so. my kids tell me they miss there mommy. they miss me going to the school and helping out and they miss me going to parks or even in the yard and playing. I amd stuck every since my PCOS has gotten extremely bad. I do not have medical insurance and have tried for help through social services for medicaid but have been turned down. When my husbands employer stopped carrying insurance for employees and families my condition has spiraled out of controll. I am scared of what is going to happen in the near future with my insulin resistance since i no longer have the meds i need to control all this. I hope that anyone else that suffers from this can and is able to see doctors because it is sooo important to control this i am a example of what happens when itis not managed and i wish this on NOONE! I NEED AND WANT HELP I FEEL I AM SINKING AND WILL NEVER GET BACK UP! I AM TIRED OF CRYONG ANF FEELING AND LOOKING LIKE THIS!
