MY PCOS PREGNANCY JOURNEY: PART ONE

I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). I was diagnosed at 15 after experiencing irregular periods. All I recall form the diagnosis was that the doctor did a blood test and quickly prescribed me the contraceptive pill which I remained on for the next decade. My story is not unique. Many women I speak too experienced that same thing. Just like them I didn't understand my condition or how it was affecting my weight or mental health.

But for some reason this quote really got me thinking. Upon reading it I felt pressure and honestly I'm still reflecting on why I feel this way.

Respect for Teachers- Media it starts with YOU!

There are programs dedicated to doctors e.g. Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor. There are shows dedicated to Police: NCIS, Fire Men: Chicago Fire, Lawyers: The Good Fight, Politicians: West Wing, Home renovators-The Block but when was the last time you saw one dedicated to teachers.
