Season 5 Episode 8: My partner / friend / family member has PCOS, what can I do to help?
It can be hard for your partner, family and friends to know what to do to help you with your PCOS symptoms – especially if they don’t have it themselves. I do a lot of episodes on the nuances of PCOS but today I want to turn the tables and talk to all of your loved ones!
So hello significant others of all my cystas! This one’s for you.
It’s a confusing journey for us all which is why we need a strong support system. Once your support system understands more about what PCOS means and WHY you’re making particular lifestyle changes – they can start to piece together everything like you have been.
I really wanted to do an episode like this because I know that changing habits and changing big parts of your lifestyle is hard enough as it is and I found when I was making changes, it’s so much easier when those around you understand a bit more about what you’re going through.
I know so many of you have tried a whole range of different diets, exercise regimes and supplements and that may have put your significant other(s) in a position where they don’t want you to go through yet another thing that may not help.
That’s why I really want to explain PCOS in depth for all of the husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, parents and siblings of all my cystas out there.
So pass over the headphones, plug in the aux cord in the car or play it while you make a meal for them to learn more about what’s going on and how they can help support you through this PCOS journey!
