Day 13

Thirteen days ago my doctor diagnosed me with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (learn more here). Which was not a good day.

I had been on a journey to find better health- better boundaries between my professional and personal life, exercise I enjoy, energy, waking up and looking forward to the day - things that I hadn't been finding for a while. My diagnosis put a face to the things I'd been feeling and struggling with. Knowing that there was a reason my eating and exercise only helped me get the body I wanted a little. Knowing that feeling lethargic and emotional was linked to my medical condition were a little hopeful. If I can get the symptoms under control, how much better will I feel? How much happier will I be? How much healthier will I be and will my family be?

I've been fighting against myself for 15+ years and it's exciting to feel like I'm actually figuring this out.
