Hi! Welcome to my blog!
My name is Lynne. I am 27 years old, happily married to my favorite person, Hubs, and mommy to 2 fur-babies and 2 feather-babies. We have Squeeks the green cheeked conure, Mona the parakeet, Spike the pom/black lab and Fred the guinea pig.
I am 100% full-blooded Texan and I love it, even if the summers are way too hot and in the winter we get ice instead of snow. I've traveled all over the country, and still can't find a place I would rather live than Texas.
I am a fighter. My dad always said I'd pick a fight with a fencepost if I believed I could win, and I think I agree. That's why I decided that I should fight to get my life back. I was diagnosed with depression and bipolar II disorder in 2006, and PCOS in 2007. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia in 2012. If you let them, any one of these diseases can rob you of your life - and I have 5!
I started my blog in 2009 as a way to pass the time. I needed a cheap (read: free) hobby. That hobby lasted all of a week before I just gave up. It wasn't ever meant to be a blog about me, because let's face it, I'm pretty boring.
Back then, though, I didn't really care about my PCOS diagnosis. I was just going to live my life the way I wanted to, and ignore PCOS. That was until August of 2010. I had finally reached 260 pounds, the most I have ever weighed. Standing tall at a whopping 5'3", that was a lot of weight for my tiny little spine to handle. I decided to change my life.
I started to fight back. I altered my diet, began exercising, and started researching natural herbs and supplements to find what I needed to manage my PCOS. In March 2011, I started receiving messages and friend requests from other women with PCOS, asking me for help and guidance. I never thought that by taking care of me, I could help so many others as well. I decided to resurrect the blog. It's pretty eclectic in the subject matter, although they typically center around PCOS, Infertility, or the nasty head-reeling mental side effects of PCOS, such as depression and bipolar disorder.
My only hope is that this blog helps other women like it is helping me. I'm always open to questions, and I'll do everything in my power to provide good, well-researched answers.
