Test Results in

posted in Health, Me, Stress |

I have PCOS with Insulin Resistence. I start taking Metformin today. (After Zach gets home because I can’t pick it up with the car I have here). I am not sure which is worse, premature menopause or PCOS, but it isn’t like I have a choice in the matter. lol.

It does explain a lot of things though. I know it fits, I just wish it didn’t.

Three weeks ago the only medication I was on was vitamin pills. Now I have allergy meds, allergy inhaler and now this. *sigh* I feel old.

    Wait… I confused, are you experiencing both PCOS and premature menopause? Or were you just concerned that you were experiencing premature menopause and that’s what made you go to the doctor?

    I’m sorry about the PCOS diagnosis, but hopefully the metformin will help reverse all the negative outcomes of undiagnosed insulin resistance.

    premature menopause was the other plausible option. I actually went in because when I was having all that sinus stuff just before I left, when the regular doctor was feeling my lymph nodes he made a comment to his nurse to keep an eye on the breast tissue in my armpit area because it didn’t feel right to him. Freaked me out and I called the OB/GYN to have somebody more experienced check it out and do my annual exam. The tissue was totally normal, but other stuff came up. lol This was a whole lot better news than having to go through biopsies and breast cancer, which is what I walked in the door worried about.

  • I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children – certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring. — Fred Rogers
