This morning I was woken up by a ringing phone and an unknown number. It turned out to be the doctors office. The technician happily told me that they'd received my results and all was normal and I'm not pre-diabetic. If you know me by now that was not enough information. I asked about my ovulation results. She said that the doctor had just told her that all was normal and she assumed that meant my ovulation test too.
My immediate reaction:
When you ASSUME You make an ASS out of U and ME.
I asked if I could get a copy of my results and if I could speak to my doctor about an upcoming "now what" appointment. I left a voicemail.
I went about my business for the day, which consisted of me wearing a hard hat while on a tour of a water recycling plant (who knew recycled water could taste so good!)
|This is how we roll.|
|This place was huge! Like Disneyland for plants.|
and later went to set up my table for an environmental fair, hosted in this beautiful arboretum east of Pasadena.
When I finally returned home I saw that I had an email from the doctors office. The technician had sent me my lab results and told me my doctor had gotten my voicemail.
My ovulation test results were normal. I'm ovulating on my own. My glucose/ insulin tests were normal too. She then said I can book an appointment with her partner (in crime) because she's about to start maternity leave. *Hashtag pregnant doctor*
Things are finally getting revealed and I'm finally getting closure on my disorder. Now I need to make an appointment to talk about what I can do now to help my PCOS.
Again, I had the same impression as my last results--- if everything is so freaken normal and fine than why do I still have trouble losing weight and having PCOS symptoms? What more can I do besides what I've been doing to try and better my life?
But I am very happy to find out I'm not pre-diabetic. I'm going to continue to work on a meal plan that has less starches and sugars. Even if I'm not insulin resistant (and we haven't ruled out that I'm not) it's still a good idea to balance blood sugar.
I guess I should be happy about my test results, and I am. I just don't know where to go from here. Hopefully one more doctor visit will help me solve this feeling of hopelessness.
Thanks everyone for supporting me!
