PCOSsed Off

I’ve finally spoken to my GP about my PCOS being out of control at the moment.

My cravings are RIDICULOUS! It’s like I’m pregnant or something, I just can’t stop eating or craving bad things. I’ve never been this bad before.

Not only this but my period has skipped again and I’m growing thick hair on my back …… NOT impressed.

They’re sending me for bloods and an ultrasound scan just to see if I still have PCOS (it’s never been followed up since my diagnosis) then decide what to do from there. I’m only hoping they don’t prescribe a pill that makes me balloon even more!

What do you guys do to help your symptoms?

Cliché Beginning

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas regardless of the current situation. That’s me enjoying my Ferraro Roches and Aldi version of Baileys white choc on Boxing Day.

Now Christmas is over, I’m thinking ahead to new year. Will it be another cliché? Trying to lose some ibs for one month but then relapse after a month or so? Signing up for the gym to go maybe once and think that’s enough?

The answer is … maybe.

Due to my ill health this year and me not watching what I eat for most of it (bar Gousto for a couple of weeks) I am now at the heaviest I have EVER been. I am 18.5 stone. It’s crazy!

What’s worse is, I can really notice the impact on my health (regardless of Covid). My breathing is hindered by the fat around my neck, shoulders snd breasts, I stop breathing during my sleep, I snore a colossal amount, my neck is joined to my face, I get tired out doing nothing and my PCOS has gone crazy. Forget 5 o click shadow I’ve got 9am shadow. I’ve also been on my period since Nov 3rd….. non stop and counting!!!! God knows how I’m not anaemic. Therefore this is not going to be a sheep following some fads. This is going to be a serious attempt at getting my health back in order. If I’ve learnt anything from this shit year it’s that your health and happiness are all that matters (there’s the cliché).

Come the 1st of January, I’ll be more active on here and try and post weekly posts. Comment your accounts so I can follow your journeys too! Maybe we can help each other.

Bed Potato

Happy Friday all. Since last Friday evening I have literally just laid in bed doing nothing other than writhe in intermittent pain.

I suppose in a way – rushing to the toilet every 20mins for a few days can count as exercise surely?! Especially not eating anything and not being able to keep sips of fluid in. As you saw the other day, I was 7ibs down (great). However, having been on the mend for the last two days, I have been able to eat bland food (carbs) and so I am sure as hell that weight is already back on (not great).

I will however, show you my bike that I’ve bought. I’ve cycled to work once on it (the day before I got I’ll) and plan on doing it at least once next week. And at least once a week following from that, rota permitting as I work at three different sites.

Here’s to health guys! 🍻 Have a good weekend.
