I Need a Band Aid

So... In the last two weeks I (Jana) found out that I have:

1) Hypothyroidism

2) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

I am feeling a little broken and sad. My body is kinda broken. I want some kiddos and my body doesn't. Kent might trade me in for a new model soon. Please pray that I can manage these things and that somehow my body will agree with me that having babies is a good thing.

The good news: They are treatable. Woo-Hoo.

Hey, I have hypothyroidism too... I found out when we were living together in PB. Remember when you called me Boo Radley for being a hermit every night? It made me super tired, kind of depressed and was really hard to lose weight. I have been on syntheoid for the past eight years and just get my levels checked annually... Camille

Darling Daughter,
You are perfect, you are made just the way God wants you, and I love you just as you are! We will wait on the Lord and see what he does with this situation! He is amazing and very creative, and a little problem like this is nothing for him! You are amazing too! I hold you in my heart, mom

Jana, Try not to feel too bad. I was diagnosed with PCOS after trying to have kids for over a year. The one thing in the world I truly wanted. So did Kate from Jon and Kate plus 8. I started researching like crazy and found some things that helped....accupuncture, changing my diet (the book "Fertility Diet" is good) and I even tried an herbal pill called Vitex which works a lot like Clomid to regulate your cycle. After a year and half on fertility treatments we sought the advice of a local Endocrinologist who conducted more tests and with our first round of treatment with her we were finally successful (after 6 treatment cycles had failed). I am in my 7th month and due this July. I never thought something like that could happen to me and I totally understand what you are going through. Please just trust in God and everything will work is all in his hands. I wish you all the luck in the world
