“She knew she loved him when home went
from being a place to being a person.”
-E. Leventhal 

What is it that causes a person to fall in love?

Is it the look in someone’s eye? Is it the declaration of promises and sureties that flow like honey off their lips? Is it fast and hard-hitting—a blaze of raw starlight in the hearts of two people?

Or, is slow and burning like the embers of a rising fire, building with every small breath breathed into it?

For Betty, it’s a mix of both.

PCOS: What my doctor never told me

When I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome not even two years ago, my doctor was nonchalant. My ultrasound revealed that I had benign cysts on my ovaries, a classic sign of the condition. Coupled with other symptoms I was having (weight gain, irregular periods, pelvic and back pain), she came to the conclusion that I had PCOS. She prescribed me birth control to regulate my period, assuring me that it would help with the pain I was feeling. And that was all. 

What I didn’t know at the time was that PCOS wasn’t a simple matter of absent periods and back pain, but a very serious condition with a plethora of complications. Taking my doctor’s lack of urgency as a sign that the condition I had was not serious, I continued to live my lifestyle as I always had, not realizing that I was putting my health at serious risk. It was only when I took it upon myself to research this condition, that I realized just how worried I should’ve been about it. 

This is what my doctor never told me about PCOS, that I wish she had.
