Sorry, I'm not an Echo Chamber
Support with PCOS... I'm about to say something that's probably going to get me in trouble and a pretty unpopular opinion... I've noticed as someone who runs and is a member of multiple support groups on Facebook; there are a lot of people looking for an Echo Chamber instead of actual support.
I know, I know, bare with me for a minute, I am NOT trying to be edgy, I promise. I'm not saying that this is done on purpose. PCOS SUCKS. It's a chronic syndrome, with (in my research so far) over 85 related symptoms. Symptoms that are often discounted by people in your life, even medical professionals that are supposed to be helping you! So it's easy to go into support groups and want to be validated with the feelings, thoughts and experiences you are having.
However, I can't be your Echo Chamber. PCOS Sucks, it absolutely does. But We Don't Have To! And I know that it is so incredibly difficult to be positive with a chronic illness. But, when you come to me, I am not going to feed into your sorrow. I am going to feed into your positivity and your self abilities to lift yourself up.
You are able to get your symptoms under control and maintained. Is it going to happen overnight, hell no. Are their magic pills, absolutely not. But, you have the ability to do the research, find the resources, and make your life better.
I will not be your echo chamber, I will be your cheerleader. I will be your resource, I will be the person to tell you when you are down that YOU GOT THIS! That it will be okay and that despite everything, it will get better. That there is hope and no matter what happens, there is silver linings and positive reasons for it all. I will send you love and strength. I will show you how incredibly powerful and strong you are. I will not be a negative echo chamber. You are worth more than that.
