As we are nearing the end of September, I appreciate all the women who have shared their inspiring stories. I personally take to heart this disorder. PCOS affects 1 in 5 women worldwide. For more information go to http://www.pcosaa.org

Tell us about yourself
Hi, I’m Tiffany (@KetoCys) and I’m almost 36 years old. I’m married to a wonderful man and currently have no children. I live in the Bay Area, California. I have two wonderful animals, Nayeli our Husky Mix & Frankie our Red-Eared-Slider Turtle. I spend my time volunteering at the SPCA, logging my PCOS journey on my Instagram and traveling to new places.
I was first diagnosed with PCOS back in 2006. I had been going to the doctor for about 5 years before my diagnosis with an onset of many different symptoms; panic attacks, heart palpitations, extreme anxiety, sudden weight gain, depression, hair growth, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, muscle aches, pain in my joints, pain in my pelvic area and high blood pressure. You name it, I had it, I was miserable.
Take charge of your health, don’t let anyone make you feel like you are not important. Follow your heart and educate yourself with all possible treatments. Do the research.
What is something that inspires you?
My Husband, he is a wonderful support system and keeps me going on days I feel like giving up.
