I’m going to start today’s post by back-tracking a bit to December of 2017. In my last post, I mentioned an appointment I made over Christmas to see an alternative doctor in my hometown; this time, an osteopath.
In case you missed the first part of my story and want to catch up, click to read the first and second posts I made. This next part of my journey covers my experience with different doctors and what I learned from the appointments. It also touches on the pathophysiology behind PCOS, or the changes that accompany a disorder or disease. And don’t worry, it’s not too complicated. I’m a business major.
I am going to start this post with a real-time update (writing this on Tuesday) of how I’m feeling, and I’ll be honest – today is rough.
Here it is; my first post. When my sister (hey there, Abbie) first mentioned the idea of starting a blog, I dismissed the idea. What would I talk about? Who would care to listen? The more I thought about it, though, the more the idea grew on me. How awesome would it be if I could use my struggles to speak into the lives of others, even if it’s just one person? I hope I can at least spread awareness of PCOS and shed light on the disorder’s prevalence. Whether you’re here because you have PCOS, chronic fatigue, or some unknown illness; whether or not you have any idea what I’m talking about, or whether you’re simply here because you know me, I hope you’ll read on.
