"Happiness is a consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."

The one thing I have always wanted to be is a mom. When they would ask my classes growing up what they wanted to be the other kids would have answers like, “Astronaut. Ballerina. Firefighter!” I, on the other hand, though always said with no hesitation, “A Mom.”
My doctor thinks that I have PCOS (Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome).
I am only NINETEEN years old.
Kids should be on the distant horizon, not even on the edges of the radar…
At 19 years old, I did not want to have to worry about being able to have children when I am finally ready… But I want my grandparents to be able to meet my children and watch them grow out of diapers at least.
I don’t want to have kids until after I am married. So now, I have to think about being ready and stable to start my “adult” life a lot sooner than I wanted because I can’t wait until I am in my thirties to try for kids because it’s already going to be a struggle to conceive now, let alone ten years from now.
Do you guys know anything about PCOS? Do you know any women with PCOS with children? Anything at all will help me.
