Here’s What It Feels Like To Love A Woman That Is Suffering From Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

SHARE

The woman that is fighting Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a truly strong, brave, and inspirational person. She suffers from a condition that greatly impacts her self-esteem, her mood, and her relationships with others and that goes way beyond only being a fertility problem.

She faces her condition each and every day with great strength and courage.

So, if you happen to be in a relationship with a woman suffering from PCOS, please, know that she is doing everything in her power to control her condition and prevent it from affecting your relationship.

Most importantly, you need to know that she needs your wholehearted, unwavering support and help. She needs you to be caring, patient, and kind. She needs to know that you understand what she’s going through.

She needs to know you love and care about her even when she feels and behaves like she’s not herself.

Because there’re times when she behaves illogically and flies off the handle with no reason. There are times when she yells at you although she doesn’t mean to.

There are times when she experiences especially strong food cravings. There are times when she feels like she could eat two boxes of chocolates all by herself, but she’s aware that she can’t always eat what she wants, and this drives her crazy. 

The woman that lives with PCOS bears a great physical and emotional pain inside of her. She bears a pain that fills her with disappointments and that prevents her from living her life the way she wants and deserves to live it.

Her days are filled with constant worries, doubts, and fears. She doubts her qualities. She doubts her strength. She doubts her worth.

She fears that she might not be able to conceive. She’s afraid she might not be able to start a family with you. She’s scared that she might not enjoy the future she’s always wanted to – the future in which you two are together – together forever.

But, do you know what her greatest fear is?

Her greatest fear is that you might get tired of her and her condition and leave her. She fears that you might fall in love with another woman – a woman who doesn’t have the bodily imperfections she has and who doesn’t have to fight the condition that she struggles with every single day.

She tortures herself every day with questions, such as:

Does he know that I’m doing everything I can to get rid of my condition?

Is he going to be there for me every step of the way?

Is he ever going to lose his patience and get tired of our relationship?

But, you know what?

She is enormously grateful. She’s genuinely grateful for having you in her life.

So, I hope that you are always there for her. I hope that you never stop giving her the strength she needs to keep her condition under control.

I hope you are her greatest cheerleader. I hope you always treat her with the patience, kindness, compassion, and affection she deserves to be treated.

I hope that you’re the one who helps her heal emotionally and physically.

I hope you let her know that she’s pretty just the way she is. That she’s perfect exactly the way she is.

I hope you never get tired of her and you never give up on her.

And last but not least, I hope that you never stop seeing and admiring her for the strong, brave, and wonderful woman she is.
