I just found out today that I have polycystic ovaries and I have to start taking the birth control pill. This on top of everything else!! I am relieved that I don't have anything really serious, but I am becoming so frustrated. My list of problems now includes: IBS-D, GERD, depression, anxiety (GAD), high cholesterol (genetic -- both parents had to resort to taking Lipitor as lifestyle changes had no effect), polycystic ovarian syndrome, and according to my therapist, maybe hypochondriasis. I already take Losec, Elavil, just started Celexa two weeks ago, and now have to take the pill, when I get my period, whenever that will be, as it's already been two months.I do need to lose a little weight, but I am having such a struggle. I have eliminated snacking, never eat large meals (due to GERD) and started exercising, but I haven't lost a pound. My doctor agrees that it may be due to the Elavil, so I need to stop taking that soon too. Ugh!! I feel like this will never end.Sorry to go on so much. Guess I just needed to rant a little. Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed.
