Attention DEAA000!! I need you to respond to my emails so I can send you the toy you won! If I don't hear from you by Wednesday, I'm going to have to select another winner!
I've been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and insulin resistance. The former increases my likelihoods of cancer and infertility. So I'm on birth control to help that. The most common symptom of insulin resistance is exhaustion and fatigue. So, GOD, I'm hoping the medication I'll be starting for that helps with those. Because it's gotten bad and it seems to be worsening. Fingers crossed.
It's not just being tired. Even though that's part of it. Your muscles shake from exhaustion when you've done nothing. When you manage to get yourself out of bed and walk to the bathroom, you have to hold on to the walls because your legs are about to give out on you. Carrying groceries in from the car results in you trapped in bed for two days. You, literally, feel as if you ran a marathon when you've barely managed to move enough to survive. It's not about being fat and/or lazy but, if you do think that, I'm sure I won't be able to tell you otherwise.
Hopefully new medication will enable me to function and move more. To work out daily and do more than one thing a week. That'd be nice.
The pain doctor I was trying to get in to see denied my case so now I'm waiting to hear back from another. I miss having doctors that know and trust me. But I'm slowly acquiring them! My primary seems okay. My psychiatrist and therapist are awesome. My nutritionist is changing my life. And my new gynecologist is great. Now if I can just add a pain specialist to the mix, my health team will be perfection!
