I been thinkin’, I been thankin’ (about polycystic ovaries). Y’all, this syndrome has taken quite a toll on my body. I recently graduated college and I finally have some time to focus on myself a little bit more. This includes making up missed doctor’s appointments and resting.
Upon attending said appointments, my hormone levels are wonky, blood sugar high, and weight gain has been relentless. My experience with polycystic ovarian syndrome has been rather unpleasant. Having PCOS means more than cyst covered ovaries, it means that my body produces an abnormal amount of testosterone, and often results in many different issues including, but not limited to, infertility and diabetes. Diabetes runs in my family, and that’s what I’m most worried about. Having PCOS also means my body is insulin resistant and it takes the sugar from carbs and stores it as fat. Pretty gross. But beyond my control—which is weirdly more comforting than growing up thinking I was just a chubster with no self control. (Note: I love my body now, I just wish it loved me back)
The good news is…it’s all relatively controllable. The bad news is… I have to give up carbs, soda, and dairy. My normal diet literally consists of giant bowls of cereal and diet coke on the reg.
While this isn’t the worst thing in the world, I can’t help but be annoyed that I grew up thinking I was less attractive than the other girls around me, because of my less petite body, or my weirdly dry skin. I have always been really hard on myself because I’m competitive by nature and I can’t keep up with most people on the track. Fatigue is another side effect and it is incredibly frustrating. As it were, it turns out this illness has just kind of taken over my body.
But guess what? No mas. I’m an adult now, and I’ve accomplished so many things during my short time on earth. I get to be in control of my body. So if that means adjusting my diet, making more time for the gym, and regularly deep conditioning my hair (unrelated—this is just a new addition to my routine and my hair looks FAB), then so be it. As long as I come out on top.
