    I Think Pcos Destroy's One's Self-confidence

    I'm 14 years old, and I was diagnosed with PCOS only a few days ago. The doctor told me not to worry since it could be treated, but I researched on what PCOS is and my spirits kept on being dragged down. I remember seeing that a woman with PCOS is more likely to suffer from...

    Hopeful, Yet Discouraged.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS late April 2013. I've always felt something was wrong with me. Last year I only had two periods and thought maybe it was due to stress. I seemed to gain weight faster and was unable to lose any. I was always tired, sluggish and most of all depressed. I...

    "Suffering"? No, not really. Clinically depressed, but never feel it. It doesn't make sense. These stupid humans do know what the **** they are talking about.
