As I mentioned in my ‘morning ritual’ post I had a hospital appointment yesterday. I have now officially been diagnosed with PCOS. I’ve had all the symptoms for years so it was a relief to finally get the diagnosis and not have to worry that it might be something else or just plain that I was going mad. I’m facing into a new medication and the fear that it might not agree with me as I have had an issue with a similar medication in the past. I’ve also got what they think is a dermoid cyst on one of my ovaries so that needs further investigating. It means I am also facing an MRI in the next few months which is a bit terrifying as I am claustrophobic!
Between all of this, the diabetes and all the associated stuff I am just very glad that I am a human and not an animals as I’m pretty sure I’d have been put to sleep by now! 😛
On the plus side, the consultant was very pleased with how the weightloss is coming on. I am in or around the same weight I was when last weighed according to the scales today – allowing for some discrepancies! I’m happy enough with this as I know I was off the wagon for a bit and needed to get myself back on track. 🙂
It has been a busy day as in addition to the medical stuff I also met the very lovely Sarah from Rara Giggle’s Blog for a coffee and some chats, and I did a little bit of shopping in Cara Pharmacy as I was in Cavan anyway. I will blog about my haul ASAP as I got some real bargains!
I hope you are all well! Hope all of the #IrishBBloggers have checked out my post on #whatbloggersdidnext meetup and are ready for Saturday! Can’t wait to meet some more of you and catch up with others!
