I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep or just being frustrated but looking on sites about PCOS is just getting me confused.
The last week my symptoms are getting worse. I’ve been off of contraception since May 3rd and as it’s only use was to keep my symptoms at bay I feel they’re coming back with a vengeance.
My skin is so oily and although spots are always. Problem, they’re worse. I usually have one or two big ones and now my face seems covered in small bumps as well. The usual beauty regime that has worked for the past six months isn’t working anymore. My hair Lasts no more than 1.5 days after washing it, before it becomes a grease-ball. My unwanted hair is appearing every other day with a new hair sprouting just waiting to be plucked. I’m overly emotional and scared my depression is rearing its head, I’ve been off anti depressants since March/April and do not like the idea of being back on them. I always freak that if my moods stay low for more than a few days then it’s coming back, but I shouldn’t wallow, I should try to be positive but it’s hard when I know how low I can go.
I decided to do research on blogs for PCOS today praying that I’ll find something to help, or at least perk me up but it proved my point that the most popular sites are years old, barely updated or just crap.
One thing I do wonder though, every fact site mentions losing weight, being a UK size ten I doubt I’m in that boat, however I also wonder “would it hurt?”
I’ve always had a problem with food, not in an anorexic/bulimic sense, but I’m a fussy eater. I don’t eat meat in a bone or meat that looks like an animal. I have an appetite like a sparrow but give me a dessert before dinner and I’m a happy lady.
With these issues, is it any wonder I’m apprehensive to even consider “dieting” when I’m small sized as it is, I would consider speaking to my GP but the only woman GP at my surgery I had faith in talking to about PCOS has left and sexist as it may be, I don’t know if a male doctor could truly sympathies with a late twenties woman blubbering about food and fertility issues.
If there is anyone who can help me with suggestions I would be most thankful.
