Ever asked yourself: WHY me?
WHY am I overweight?
WHY do I have PCOS?
WHY can't I get pregnant?
WHY am I struggling like this?
Many times, for some of those questions.
Yet, I've never found definite answers to my interrogations.
Heck, even science is not a 100% sure about many health conditions. They discover new things here and there, every day.
And unfortunately, some companies will even make profit off those uncertainties and conditions we suffer from.
I'm thinking about the pill pusher industry.
I'm not saying all pills are wrong, and I'm certainly not judging my PCOS cysters who are trying to get pregnant or reverse certain symptoms of PCOS with medications. I know how hard it can be when you want something really bad and you just want something that'll work.
But we have to be aware that this condition, like so many others, puts us in a vulnerable spot.
Being vulnerable isn't anyone's preference. But women with PCOS are vulnerable, to a certain extent. It's a condition that's not really known thoroughly (even by doctors!). And we're either guinea pigs or left behind with unanswered questions.
So, asking "why me" doesn't really gets us anywhere. In fact, whenever I asked myself this question, I most often end up in a very dark place.
I've been empowered to do something about it. So although I can't really affect the "WHY," I believe I can have a huge impact on the "HOW." So I do my research before trying that medication my GP prescribed.
I take nobody's word for granted, and find alternative, more natural ways to deal with my symptoms.
I know I have some power over PCOS. Power to choose what goes into my body. Power to choose what I do with this body God gave me.
It's time to accept this diagnosis... but also to do something meaningful about it.
Ever asked yourself: why me? What have you done about it?
