Bigger dilemma

Standard

I haven’t updated in a while so here it goes.
I don’t have pcos, but apparently my thyroid levels are low. The doctor isn’t going to do anything but continue on with my birth control. On that note, my insurance has paid diddly squat for anything so I’ve got like $2000 in doctor bills because fucking lab work. And I have no way of getting any help because I have insurance already. I don’t think people are understanding the fact that my insurance isn’t paying out anything. Which I’m filing claims and so on hoping that maybe they’ll pay something. So before I drop them like a rock I’ll see if they pay anything.
On the bright side of things I’ve lost 20 lbs since starting keto. That’s 35 lbs lost in total since last summer. I am super proud of myself. Which this past week I’ve been stalling a bit but I’ve just been super tired this week and not been exercising. I need to get more sleep for sure. Chamomile tea, here I come!!!

Keto diet

Standard

So I started the keto diet today. So far I am doing good with only 14g of carbs consumed! Yay!!! I have been craving some bread-y items but I’m doing good with keeping my willpower up. Tomorrow I go to find out if I have PCOS. Then hopefully we can have a nice discussion and figure out what to do about my situation. Since I have already started that diet, that should help anyways. I’ve read that I shouldn’t even try to work out the first couple of weeks. Apparently you get “the carb flu” because your body is switching from using carbs as energy to using fat as energy instead. A lot of people lose 20 lbs in a month. I am super excited!

Snow!

Standard

So it snowed a lot where I live today! It’s so pretty~

But it is also dangerous. I may or may not make it to work tomorrow. It would be nice to sleep in a bit to be honest. So, just one week until I find out what’s wrong with me and what to do about it. I’m a little anxious. I want to know what’s going on so I can work on fixing my body…but then I guess I’m also kind of scared. What bothers me about this whole PCOS ordeal is that nobody really seems to care. And the fact that this all could have been resolved when I was way younger if my parents hadn’t played off me being constantly tired as me being lazy. Just like with my headaches. Oh. It’s just soda. It’s just this or that. never actually doing anything about it. I never saw a doctor until I was 19 and I went myself. Through all of that I found out that the neurologist I was going to sucks. Also, topamax does not work. But even then I didn’t really feel like I had a whole lot of…support. I’ve never really felt cared for. I’ve always felt so unimportant. Like my pains and problems don’t matter. And that sucks. Blaaaahhhh!

PCOS

Standard

So Thursday, I went to the gynecologist and she gave me orders to get labwork done. She thinks that I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). I got all of that done Saturday. Six vials of blood. SIX! I almost threw up. Then I had to work. What a fantastic day that was! Now it’s just a waiting game until I go back in about 2 weeks. I hope that we’re able to figure things out and find a way to help with weight loss and help with the fact that I’m so tired all the time. I hate that I’m always so tired. I could probably lose weight if I actually had the energy to exercise more. Could also explain why my hair falls out like crazy.

Welp, let’s hope for the best, anyways!
