Missychick21's Journal, 19 October 2011

The nurse called back yesterday to schedule an ultrasound, but she said it was a bit more intense than a regular one. I did bring up PCOS just as something to throw out there and she said that was something we can look in to but she still wanted to do the sonogram. Then instead of transferring me to schedule it she decided she needed to talk to the Dr. again to see if the Dr. wanted to be present at the sonogram lol. So yet again waiting for a call today. She was very polite at least and thanked me for being so patient with her. So now I know for sure they want to do an ultrasound, she sounded surprised that nobody has done one in the past year or so since I have been having issues.

On a different note my mood yesterday didn't totally suck :D I didn't really eat much of anything to be honest and dinner was way too late but oh well I still went down from yesterdays weight. I walked to the store since I was out of salad and on my way home there's a couple hills (not really steep) and I actually ran up the last one pushing a stroller and my daughter ran beside me. I have no idea where that urge came from but I was hyper and stayed that way all night. Not to mention the 4 trips up and down my stairs to my apartment to take in kids and groceries and carry my double stroller up the stairs.

Let's hope today isn't a crappy day either, I really need to stay positive.

Thanks all for caring and reading about my issues :)

Missy - was going to mention to you that I had similar symptoms and these were caused by fibroid tumors. Fibroids will show up on an ultrasound - and if you don't have them you can rule that out. There is also lots of other fun stuff you could have, like endometriosis. Might as well get tested for everything once and get it over with once for all. Hope today is better for you!

Buffy- I have had endometriosis and it took 2 doses of meds and a shot to clear it up...or so they thought it was clear. I hope I find out soon, I am so scared of cancer and stuff. I am only 23 with young children I don't want them to have to worry about their mom.

Rocky- You have no idea how much this site and friends like you have helped me, I feel like I have a big family where people actually care about what I am going through and don't judge me for being fat and having issues. As for that hill, I think I will walk it again later back to the store...not sure about running it again yet lol

That's the good thing about this site Missy. We all are here cause we have issues, but the best part is we recognize that fact and are actively trying to change ourselves for the better.

Icy-It would be so very hard and honestly impossible for me to have done this alone. I appreciate all the help and support and advice I have gotten. This site has been my hero with all the amazing people on it :)

I feel the same. I don't think I could have stuck with this WOE for as long as I have w/o the support from people on this site. The challenges, being able to admit my faults and flaws and working thru them. Most of us are overweight because of some underlying issues at work and those things also have to be addressed in order for the changes to be permanent.

At first I thought it wasn't ok to talk about feelings here just dieting and exercise but it is so nice to be able to talk about emotional issues too. I get a lot more help than if I was to try and see a therapist or something and so much positive feedback :)

Part of the diet "thing" is emotional. So it is nice to be able to let out emotional issues and have nonjudgmental people who may have had the same experiences as you give you a outlet and advise.

It seems as if the friends on here are the only ones who understand how I feel about food, stress, boredom, and unhappiness! Food was the one thing I could turn to with these problems before I found this site and these wonderful people. Thanks!!

Yea I have found that my friends not from this site have a hard time with me and my issues, especially my weight. They all say the same stuff about me being fine and I don't need to lose any weight and how dieting is stupid and I will fail and gain it all back... Nice encouragements huh?

I know exactly what you mean, seems most people in my life just "don't get it". They there are all of you! (HUGS) I'm glad that I found this place, and I'm glad that we can all help eachother. Best of luck to you in your journey! Keep up the great work!!

I will be praying for you. And sometimes our friends are more embarrassed about our weight than we are. And yes thank God for fs. It is a comfort to know that their are others that are struggling witht the same issues as me.

I am still waiting on the nurse to call back...

Missy, I have PCOS... If you have time you can send me a PM with some of the symptoms you are facing with your monthly challenges/hormones. I took a natural supplement (which my GYN poo-pooed the whole idea), but my research proved right and it totally cured me of ALL of my female woes. I was a candidate for all that stuff: Endometr..Uterine Cancer, you name it. Now I am fixed! And all without taking the *drugs* he kept wanting me to take. Boy was he shocked when I told him what helped me/fixed me!! I'd love to share the news with you, friend.
