Since learning she has the polycystic ovarian syndrome, Gracie, the daughter of Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, has received an outpouring of love and support.
The descendant of the 1883 celebrity bravely told her fans of her condition on social media.
Gracie shared two photos of herself, one in her underwear and the other with stars covering the imperfections on her face, along with a lengthy text that read: “I just wanted to share quickly that I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS” (polycystic ovarian syndrome).
“Normally, you’d need two of the five PCOS requirements to be diagnosed, but I had three.”
“We chose to use medication to help regulate my body more frequently and to teach myself how to keep my body and myself healthy as I grew older. During my consultation with my endocrinologist, I learned that may have been a factor in my weight difficulties,” she stated.
“I’m working out how to deal with the new flaws, but I don’t think I would have ever allowed myself to go to a doctor’s appointment like this unless I had taken the appropriate steps toward my mental health,” the patient explained.
Supporters lauded Gracie as an inspiration.
“Sending love to everyone going through anything, whether it’s a comparable struggle,” Gracie remarked. “It is pretty tough to maintain one’s mental wellness!”
“I provide my experience in the hopes that it might benefit someone who can connect to my circumstance. P.S. Thanks to my medication, I now have a body I haven’t had in years—possibly ever.”
Gracie’s admirers swarmed to her side, thanking her for being such an inspiration. The first said, “Thank you for being you, for sharing your experience, for being an honest and real role model for everyone,” while the second said, “Sending love,” and included two prayer hand emojis.
Some more congratulated her for being “brave” and “beautiful” and thanked her for expressing her story.
PCOS is “a condition that alters a woman’s hormone balance,” according to Healthline, and it also causes baldness and hair growth on the face and body. It may also aggravate chronic health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
