Thanks for sharing all your thoughts and allowing me to take them in. I am new to this site and just really wanted to post my experiences with PCOS and get your understanding and advice with it.
My partner has dealt with PCOS on and off for as long as I have known her. I call her my little hippy girlfriend - she grew up in a small surfing community since her teenage years and her three favourite words are organic, healthy and ocean. She is a stunning, gorgeous woman inside & out and I secretly had a crush on her long before we were together.
After a few months into our relationship I noticed that her usual sunny disposition would wane at times. We all do that - no-one can be happy all of the time. But hers would take on a much different wane - sometimes highly depressed - other times it would lead to explosive savage outbursts. I actually thought she was a different person - she was cold, mean, and distant. The things that would come out of her mouth.... I recoiled immediately - why would anyone treat someone like this? After leaving her for a few hours she called me back where I found her breaking into tears and saying that because I am so close to her I treated her this way.
I found this unbelievable - do she think I'm buying this? Over the 2 years that we've been together the outburst come and go. She is seeking a natural approach through a fantastic naturopath who seems to making a lot of progress.
Recently there has been a big spike in her moods though - what I wanted to know is that do other people experience this as badly as what my girl does? It is so hard to not react to them and I am finding myself so lost. I try not to take it personally but it gets harder as the moods get more savage - she's moving out, she doesn't want to see me again, i disgust her, i'm useless, fat - the next day it's as if its never happened.
This is not my baby but how do I go about it....
