It takes a lot of effort and a lot of positive attitude. I struggle with it every day as well, I have to psyche myself out to have a good day so I don't dwell on all the negatives. We just have to take it one day at a time!

It does take effort to stay positive when you have PCOS. The biggest thing I have to do to keep myself upbeat is that remember that I am worth the best effort I can put into myself. Having to face my students every day means I have to project that message in everything I do so they take me seriously when I tell them They are worth the best effort they can put into Themselves. It is something akin to facing the mirror every day and, no matter how I feel on the inside, the outside has to work for both my students and myself.
Refuse to be beaten by inanimate objects, inflexible minds, and incompetent practices.
The positive outcome that I gained from PCOS is that I was forced to take care of myself, put my health first and realize its going to take effort and determination.. no more excuses.. I took control of my life.
I like your attitude about it! It's tough to find the positive when you're struggling.
I think I've gained greater awareness of my health in general. I ignored problems for too long before I sought help with PCOS. Now, I don't wait. I want answers and a plan to move forward.

Oh boy can it be so hard to be positive with PCOS. I don't know about you ladies but I hate facing the hair on my chin, the exhausted feeling all the time, obesity, anemia and struggling to find that perfect balance between what I eat, take and how much I exercise. Half of the time all I can think about is how much I wish I didn't struggle with this condition every single day.
But I made a deal with myself recently, I wasn't going to let the negative and anxious thoughts drive me bonkers anymore, keeping me paralyzed from making changes. I know some of you probably feel the same, so tell me, what positive things do you think you have gained from having PCOS?
Me: 1. I am learning how to take care of me 2. I have become a strong person capable of dealing with huge amounts of crap 3. I now think very carefully before I put something in my mouth, I weigh how much it is going to effect me and my condition 4. I have learned to really appreciate the good days!
Now how about you?
