All the black circles you can see are cysts. Some are simple and follicular (PCOS), a few are not. The big one in the bottom left is not. I have been in so much pain the past 24 hours, I’ve sat out of conferences and just curled into my couch. I am so tired of all this. But I promised to document my journey, and so here I am. Tomorrow I go in for my follow-up, where hopefully they’ll give me something other than Ibuprofen or Naproxen for this bullshit. It’s excruciating. I haven’t slept in two days, I’m dehydrated, and I’m just so exhausted … I hate this. I can’t wait for this to be over. I want my life back.
