When I was diagnosed with PCOS, I was 24 years old. I had no idea what PCOS was and how I was going to deal with with the diagnosis. I wanted to just live my life and forget that I had PCOS. Having PCOS was not a concern to me. I thought that I was invincible because I was 24 years old, and being 24 with PCOS was not that important in my life. Fast forward to 7 years later, I was diagnosed with prediabetes and high blood pressure. My Hemoglobin A1C was at 6.9. That was considered borderline diabetic at that point. I was going crazy. I lost my way through life. PCOS controlled my life in more ways than one. Having PCOS gave me more than I could ever handle. My hair started to thin out. I started to grow boils underneath my armpits. I was in a deep depression. Life was not great for me. I went on Facebook, looking for a group of women who were going through what I was going through. I came across PCOS Diva and subscribed to the newsletters. Let me tell you, Amy is just amazing! I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to go further by doing Jumpstart, but sometimes you have to listen to that good voice in your head. Fear is not good for the mind and soul. I finally decided that I needed to take a risk, and I signed up for the Jumpstart. Let me tell you, I learned more in one week about how to deal with my PCOS than I had in all the years since my diagnosis. I feel better. I am happy. I am grateful. I am blessed. I know me and I love me. I made changes for myself because I want better for me. I need to have better for me. Nobody can take what you need away from you. I talked to my OBGYN about what I was doing through PCOS Diva and she was all for it. In fact, she told me to keep going because the information that I have received through the Jumpstart, will help me for the better. Everything I’ve learned has been so helpful and the Meal Plans are wonderfully put together. The main lesson that I have learned is that I have to put myself first and there is nothing wrong with that. Amy is a great teacher! You will learn a lot and the information is just great! The only thing that I can tell you is to take notes. Notes will help you throughout your journey to feeling better. My journey is ongoing. Thank you Amy, for everything! I have PCOS…PCOS does not have me.
