It was a morning like all the others. We woke up, Louis went to the pot, as always in my company :D, we had breakfast, we got dressed and that's when I noticed the lack of my glasses… I asked Louis, because I know he loves to touch my glasses, to which he replied: -It was the whale, mami!
The whale? What do you mean, you don't know? Come on, Louis, please, we're already late.
– yes, the whale took your glasses to the baby shark because he wanted to read a book and wasn't taking a good look at the letters 😀
He took my hand and took me to his room where he showed me the baby shark in his bed with my glasses put on 😀
Then put on his glasses and said in English: – Today I'm the teacher, let's go to school 🙂
… is that women’s diseases are no longer treated as a seven-headed animal by doctors and society. I speak from experience over the years my illness worsened because the doctors confused the symptoms, said they were cramps and gave me clisters… I would like these symptoms to be well interpreted so that the diseases do not worsen to something worse. Yes, because in my case cysts in the ovaries can lead to cancer as age passes (this is my biggest fear since the disease was diagnosed to me at 18) . Type II diabetes and heart problems,bouts of kidneys, swollen legs and ankles that lead to thrombosis…
And this pandemic is not helping at all, because I know that doctors are too busy fighting this terrible virus…
I identify so much with this American girl, Shelby Eckard, known as PCOS Support Girl that I follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
How many times do we put ourselves in second place now because we told the doctor that the exams are for the next appointment, sometimes because we have dishes to wash, well because we have to take the child to school, now because we have to entertain them … and our body is showing signs but we don’t do it because we don’t care.I reviewed myself so much with this text from PCOS Support Girl.
She’s a Democrat, and despite being heavily troubled by the disease, she spent almost four hours in line to vote… subject ed to being insulted and assaulted by radical Trump supporters. 🙁 And yet she didn’t give up, even after she spent the last few days in the hospital. Yes, because she knows that her vote counts for things to change, especially if they are to help her health.
I’d like to wake up one day and not have these symptoms anymore, wake up several times in the middle of the night with my belly bursting thinking I can’t take it and I’m not going to make it through the night… 🙁
What’s giving me the strength to move on are my family, my two loves and these podcasts about PCOS where Shelby participates with another girl, Jeni, my age, who also suffers from the disease, and has already had two cancers… These conversations are showing me that I’m not alone in this fight. 🙂
Don’t be this person who votes for Trump and then complains that he needs health care but doesn’t have the money to pay for them. Don’t be this person who votes for Trump just because he’s pro-life but then he has a disease like mine that causes him infertility problems… let’s not be this person who brags about being native And Christian Latina but who forgets that her president has put Latin children in cages!
I met this person 7 years ago through groups about my disease, PCOS – PCOS Polycystic Ovarios Syndrome and I have followed her path.
You can see how she has a disconcerting and confrontational speech, typical of a supporter of the current Us president.
This person has been trying to get pregnant for years, complains that he has many health problems caused by the disease, adopted a baby through foster carer but after a short time the child was taken away…
If you can watch the video to the end without wanting to hit this person, I admire your courage and effort. Because I couldn’t… 🙁 How can someone be so unconscious? Just because Trump is against abortion doesn’t mean he respects children like he said above. And nothing gives the right to call murderers to people who have abortions. Everyone speaks for themselves. Every woman has every right to do whatever she wants with her body.
With this bad example you can see the lack of notion that exists among Trump supporters… but I hope that in these elections you will gain common sense.
And these magic-filled boxes have become our Louis’ favorite toy. What do you mean, no? I went back to my childhood, did you know that my mother brought me a box of legos, the cheapest ones, whenever I got sick? It seemed like it would help me get better. 🙂
Legos are the best invention ever to increase our creativity without a shadow of a doubt.
And truth be told, they are a great help to be independent and unresnated into adulthood 😀
I grew up near the beach. Pedrinhas beach. When I was little, I loved to catch shells and whelks, they were my summer treasures. And Louis likes to do it 🙂
Walking on the wet sand, while the seawater bathes my feet, and going collecting little shells and pebbles relaxes me so much, and it's also the things that Louis likes to do 🙂 Messing with the sand or the rocks, exploring, does you really good 🙂
And then we came home and did this DIY to later remember 🙂
What do you think? 😉 Do you like doing things like that? 🙂
