Wow I am sorry for your struggle. I have only recently been diagnosed so I am not much help as far as the long haul. I am sorry that the endocrinologist wasn't more helpful or supportive. I just wanted you to know I was here to cheer you on and listen if you need an ear or whatever. HUGS hang in there!
You can if you will.

I am glad to have found an support group that understands and can be empathetic about PCOS. I hate having PCOS.
My name is Angela and I have been struggling with my weight forever. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 1998. I just started seeing an endocrinologist and had hoped that she would be the one to understand and help. All she told me that having PCOS makes it harder to lose weight and that was that visit. Well, Duh, I know that already. I can journal, keep track, I exercise 5 times a week and I either lose a little or gain. Its so frustrating. I turn 40 this year and my goal is to lose 50 pounds by October. The PCOS has turned me cynical with the "I cannot do it" and "it'll never happen" mentality, coupled with emotional eating.
I've rambled enough. I hope to hear from anyone and hopefully we can push each other.
