PCOS & Type 2 Diabetes- My journey starts.

Last month I got some hard news from my doctor. After an exam and some blood work, the doctor diagnosed me with PCOS and type 2 diabetes. As someone who has never had health problems this came as hard news to me. I had never even heard of PCOS and in my mind Diabetes was an "old people" disease. I have gone through weeks of denial.

This is not who I am..... I am not Gabby with PCOS and Diabetes. Yes, I haven't made the best choices in eating right and exercising but I AM Healthy. These are the thoughts racing my mind lately.

But I have finally come to grips with it and am ready to move forward to a healthier life. This will be a journey.  Getting to a healthy place with PCOS means a complete life change. It is not going to be easy and I am not even sure I know what all it entails right now but I am going to learn. It is my goal to document the journey here on this blog. The ups, the downs and the plateaus.
