My Pre-Teen State
This part of my life wasn't AS detrimental like when I was 13 and up. It started when I was seven. When I was little, I was underweight (a healthy underweight) and beautiful. However, all that glittered wasn't gold. My hair, since I'm biracial, was curly and wild. Because of my hormone imbalances, my hair was SEVERELY dry. It was painful to brush and I remembered crying day after day. Eventually, my mom got fed up and we both decided that I should try perming it straight to lessen the stress. Now that I've received treatment, I feel like a fool. We had no idea what cause my hair to be such a tangled burden! I didn't have a handful of hair, I had tons to share. The natural curls are starting to grow back, but it looks really stupid with the straight ends. The hairloss was the worse. I would brush my hair (BEFORE the perm) and handfuls would come out onto the floor. It only got worse after the perm.
From 7 years old and up, I experienced:
-hair-loss (my head)
-hair growth (all over my body)
-sneaky weight gain
-depressing/suicidal thoughts (started at 11)
-from outgoing and energetic to a mope and exhausted
-Sudden rage/hostile to others (from the huge amounts of male hormone)
-Oversensitivity/crying and getting upset over anything (male mixed with female hormones)
From PCOS, I believe mental disorders could come from it. If you suffer from the physical aspects of it, depression is easy to fall into and could snowball into something else, landing them in deeper trouble. I'm not a doctor, but I'm just throwing that out there. The hormones and chemicals in the brain really mess with your actions and how you think. Its crazy how all of that stuff works! I'm just glad that I'm on the blessed road to recovery and I hope little girls get that opportunity too.
God Bless you all!
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime!
Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning. -Psalm 30:5
