Was a size 1 dancer, weight lifter, did low-impact arobics, walker 2-4hrs a day and then suddenly put on a ton of weight and stayed up for basically 30 days straight (a nap here and there but not much to go on). Was falling, blacking out while driving and periods went from every 28days for 12 yrs like clock-work to 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 days/month and skipping. Periods stopped. Then the weight gain. Have not had a period on my own for 15yrs now.
Developed complex uterine hyperplasia w/out atypia and had to go through 3 mos of progesterone after begging for 10+yrs for progesterone to induce a period. Now I have to be on dreaded synthetic birth control to prevent another near cancer scare. Am on metformin, thyroid. Have been on cortef and dhea but it made me crazy aggressive, bug eyed so i stopped taking it because though that saliva test showed that doc i was low, i had been high before on a saliva test from same lab, different doctor. I had not heard of cyclical cushing's back in 99/2000 and am glad i stopped taking that med before i had a heart attack.
I've never had the ability to have a career, though I work, or to have a real relationship since I'm now so huge, or kids since I have ovarian failure (of unspecified origin).
When I was young I wanted to find love based on the me between the ears. Now I see that most men are visual creatures and this is difficult to achieve. I do hope that I can find a doctor to find out what's wrong so I can have some sort of a life before my 30s are gone. I'd like to look in the mirror and recognize myself.
Here's to hope
