The 2nd month of my experiment is gone. I have to admit, I was terrible with my eating and hardly had my spearmint tea. I’ve been really lazy. I’m telling myself that it is justified because I’ll be so busy the rest of the year with my post-grad studies that I needed to rest before I started. I really know that I was just being lazy.
Interestingly, this month is the first time in my life that I have ever had a late period. My period was a week late and I had 2 negative pregnancy tests before it started. I wonder if this was because I was so slack and my hormones were more out of wack. I have had a bit more acne this month, but it isn’t too bad.
The worst thing at the moment is the return of nipple hairs. So gross! The extra hair growth with PCOS really makes me feel very unlady-like. I often joke with my husband about him marrying a “man”. Sometimes this gets me pretty down. I think the trick to making myself feel better again is to be very girly (eg. dress up, wear make up, do my hair really nice, go shopping etc.). Not only do these things make me feel good about myself normally but especially when my femininity is being challenged.
Do any of you do the same kinda thing?
