PCOS depression

PCOS & Depression

Im so tired of my body. Im so tired of how people view me. Whether it be my anxiety, my depression or my . Im constantly told “its all in your head.” Like duhh. Chemical imbalance IS in my head. And just now being told “you dont need to eat that and you know it.” “Put the fork down.” Im so tired of the way affects me. My heart hurts. Im just tired.

PCOS depression
  • You are not alone my sister.
  • I know it. But i feel alone. So very alone.
  • Go seek an endocrinologist .. Get to know your body and it’s hormones at a very deep, almost personal level. Don’t get disheartened by vain comments.
  • I seen an endocrinologist.. i asked about weight loss. He told me “if i locked you in a room for a month with nothing but water, would you lose weight?” My heart was broken.
  • That is a b.s. answer from a specialist. I would be seeking a new Endocrinologist for sure.
  • πŸ˜‘ Ahh yes, anxiety, depression, and pcos. The Trifecta. (Im dealing with the same) I hope this isn’t too out of line, but it sounds like the people around you are a problem.
  • I feel you. I’m done with my endocrinologist. I’m 39 and I am lost.
  • I’m in the same boat.
  • I moved my son, boyfriend and i into my dads house to take care of my brother who has cerebral palsy. Im surrounded by men who have no idea about my illnesses.
  • I can relate. People look at the exterior without knowing what’s going on inside.
  • Yes! Me to!
  • Most people are clueless and have no compassion since it’s not something they understand. Even my family & husband at times think it’s either my lack of self control or me just being moody.
  • I had a cookie today and my mum said I shouldn’t have that and I’m causing my own hormonal balance problems bla bla bla. I know that I just wanted a cookie! 😧 x
  • I think your beautiful stop worrying about what otherssay and think of you!!! Life it to Short for that !!! Enjoy your life … you dont need al That negative shit from other people they will never understand … because they dont know how it feels to be you!
  • My feelings exactly.
  • I’m tired of feeling exhausted all time. Everyone thinks im just lazy when in the fact i just feel so exhausted without doing anything.
  • I do too. Im always so tired and drained. And everyone just thinks im lazy.

I swear this depression is getting worse is there anything I can do

  • Exercise! Sunlight! Love! Healthy food!
  • Doing all of that and its still getting worse.
  • Well help me understand what you consider healthy food and I will try my best to help you you want to eliminate dairy and bread if you can to start that will help you feel a lot better also soy products are no good.
  • I’m not drinking pop. I eat very little bread and I hate milk.
  • No soda! That is a great start and I would try to eliminate bread especially white bread stay away from everything white honestly including flour and sugar those are not our friends sounds like you were doing great so far just keep your head up the results don’t come overnight but they do happen.
  • What worked for me was positive thoughts, prayer, and writing my feelings down. You may want to consult your doctor for additional help. Praying for you
  • Please speak with your doctor, they will be able to give to professional advice whether it be therapy/counselling, medication, etc. Sometimes depression goes a lot further than being able to just exercise or think positively.
  • There is absolutely nothing wrong with antidepressants. Speak to a doctor. I probably wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for a period of my life on Lexapro.
  • Why dont u try St-Johns wort?
  • Yes doctor.
  • I feel the same
  • Mental health is nothing to mess around with. Speak to a doctor. There is only so much you’ll be able to do on your own. If you’re already doing all that, it’s time to call in a professional.
  • Go to church and talk to your doctor.
  • Have your Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and folate levels checked.

Anyone else have depression as part of their pcos… ? So low right now.

  • Yes! Struggle with really bad depression and socialized anxiety disorder.
  • Yes, every day.
  • Yeah I deal with it every moment of every day. Some days are harder than others (like today).
  • I feel like I’m going mental… like I should be in some sort of hospital!πŸ˜• I’m so glad I’m not the only one.
  • If it wasn’t for the meds I take now for depression, I know I wouldn’t even be here. Most days I’m okay but there are moments in almost every day that I wonder why I keep going…but I figure anything is better than me sitting at home feeling sorry for myself.
  • If you have someone else you care for – if you think of them before you, sometimes that helpos.
  • I was on anti depressants about a year and a half ago and it made me worse in all honesty… my thoughts scare me sometimes but I quickly distract myself, it’s like I’m just ticking over till something good happens I guess… I don’t really know what I’m feeling half the time, just numb. I’m a home carer and work long hours so sometimes feels like I don’t have time to think about my self. All I ever do is go to work, home, sleep, and repeat.. and feel like I’m pushing everyone I love away from me. Sorry for the rant ladies.
  • Depression and anxiety. My anxiety is more crippling for me though.
  • You’re not alone Lexapro and Xannax are my friends.
  • You arent alone. I have anxiety and depression as well. No meds. And I push through it. I either surround myself with someone who constantly makes me laugh or watch funny shows to distract my mind. Gets very over whelming some times I’m so down i start panic mode from not wanting to be depressed anymore and I end up with an anxiety attack. You’ll get through it. Have to find different ways to distract yourself. Its easier said than done.
  • πŸ™‹πŸ» my anxiety is harder to control, but yes I have depression and anxiety! And my social anxiety is the worst! I literally stay at home 90% of the time (luckily I’m a stay at home mom)
  • Get your vitamin d levels checked out. I was the same way and now I’m doing better with my vitamin d prescription.
  • My Depression, OCD and anxiety are not directly related to my PCOS but I understand.
  • πŸ™πŸ»yes.
  • Yes, they tend to go hand in hand πŸ™
  • YES!!! Its so exhausting..no body understands why you are so emotional or why your emotions are constantly on surface….
  • Exactly! My boyfriend sometimes asks why can’t o just explain or why can’t I just have a good day 😩
  • Ya I find nyself so depressed and down but luckily my husband can help distract me. Most of the time tho I’m depressed over the pcos and ny weight and all. No meds. I just take to help lose weight but now I just seem to gain. A lot of anciety over the pcos and social. But I stay home and keep to my family and it helps. Watching my son and his shows and dancing. But when it hurts to move or excersize I go back to being upset again bc I remind nyself. Or I gained and all I ate was tomatoes and strawberries. And your clothes sont fit again.
  • Yes.
  • Yes.
  • Yes everyday.
  • Depression yes, at times. But my anxiety is WAY worst!
  • I do. It put me down for like six months almost a year to recover from that nervous breakdown. Wouldn’t get out of bed. Found the right medication after trying quite a few which sucked more than vacuums. I take a pretty high dose but man am I ever happy! Lol motivated. Positive. Yeah. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
  • What are you taking?
  • Zoloft 225mg every night.
  • Thank you.
  • Np! Anytime!
  • My anxiety is the worst but it brings me down too.
  • Yes and anxiety and panic attacks.
  • I have panic stacks too but I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with my pcos.
  • Generalised anxiety disorder over here πŸ™
  • Yes it’s hard sometimes just sneaks up on me.
  • Most definitely. I was taking Zoloft but it does nothing for me. My anxiety is pretty bad too.
  • I think the two go together. There are three good treatments I know for depression; exercise outdoors, meds, and therapy.
    Hormones are also crucial so make sure to get frequent blood tests.
    We’re all in this together babe.
  • I did. Not so much now that my insulin and weight is under control.
  • I don’t take in anti depressants but if I think of someone I care (bf) i kept getting depressed bec. He’s busy with work abroad and we are on LDR, so I go out with friends or keep myself busy so as not to get depressed too much and also working out to keep myself focused.
  • Occasionally depression but more anxiety.
  • Big time!! πŸ™‹πŸΌ
  • It can be so difficult for me at times, but hope a change in my way of eating will help. I am going low carb high fat with the ketogenic way of eating.
  • Yes.
  • Yes very much so! Along with anxiety. It’s awful.
  • I m..:( still too much depressed:( nobody understand me. πŸ™
  • Same here. =( Especially now that my sister-in-law thinks she’s pregnant. I feel envious but Im genuinely happy for her. =)
  • Yes and anxiety. I’ve been using slow mag (magnesium) which seems to assist a lot with the anxiety.
  • Yes low mood anxiety and jus a general it sucks to be me feeling x
  • Yes…. I hate it.
  • I had the biggest meltdown yesterday. Besides my husband, folks are always to busy.
  • Defianetly! I’m so glad I’m not the only one, thank you for all replying! I feel better knowing I’m not the only one. Had such a rubbish few days but knowing that the feeling won’t last forever kind of keeps me going… sometimes I feel like my partner is the only one whose there for me but even then he sometimes doesn’t understand.
  • Yup…. That sums it all up.
  • I sometimes think about starting a meet up group…… However, I’m from Pa.
  • I would love to go to a meet up group. But I’m from Scotland, U.K.! C
  • Depression and anxiety attacks almost every night.
  • Too much depressed.
  • Yes, it’s like every weekend depression takes me down, then I do everything in my power to lift back up to make it through the work week. Its so exhausting. I just wish that I could get by without the down days.
  • I ve been on and off antidepressants since I was 13 that’s now 9 years ago πŸ™
  • Everyday
  • I feel like a lot of us are low right now :/
  • I Have 😭
  • Yes! 4 different meds to combat it while TTC.. not the greatest situation.
  • I’m so sorry. The meds aren’t making TTC harder?
  • No, they are helping. I request that I stay on meds that I can TTC on. My Obgyn has even stated “mommy s body and mind have to be happy and healthy before baby can be happy and healthy”
    I’m on 2 different antidepressants
    And a sleeping pill.
  • Oh okay I understand and I hope all your dreams come true
  • Thanks and yours too girly.
  • Aww thank you so much I appreciate it.
  • Yes and it doesn’t help that my husband is thousands of miles away. I’ve been hitting some extremely low lows lately and it seems to be getting worse.
