    My energy was good on Metformin. My thyroid is in good condition thankfully. My NP figures my high cortisol was due to all the inflammation going on in my gut. Since getting that healed up I've been doing much better. The NP said that I've basically been suppressing things with birth control. By going off it and Metformin my body is going back to the imbalance. I'm feeling kind of sad tonight about it, but it makes sense I guess. It will be interesting to see what the results point to.

    Have any of you PCOS sisters had your insulin levels checked? I'm considering going back on slow release Metformin.

    Talked with my NP today. I am going back on Metformin plus some herbal support for liver and blood sugar. Time to stop this weight gain train. I'm ready. Time for some acceptance too. Acceptance that I need more support.
