    Why I Started VRS Support

    in Education

    VRS Support was established in 2012 to help VRS members have a better understanding of their options. No one knows what the future holds. That’s why you need a plan to help ensure that no matter what twists and turns life sends your way, you’ll have a financial safety net to protect you and your family.


    We know people like you sitting right where you are, thinking about retirement and not exactly knowing what to do.


    We were in your shoes not to long ago. We wish we knew what we know now before we went to the Human Resource / Benefits Department.


    You have enough years in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) to retire. What should you do next? You need some answers you need more information and you need it soon.


    This Blog Talk Radio Station provides information to better help you understand the decisions you must make. We hope you find it useful.


     We want to share information and help you make the right decisions about your retirement.

    RESCHEDULED! Stephanie, PCOS, Possibly Cushing's Patient

    in Health

    Her bio states: "Hi. My name Steph, and this has been a long journey for me so far, and I see a long road ahead. Hopefully their will be a rainbow once all these clouds have melted away. I just turned 33 years old (this month) and have been dealing with symptoms of Cushing's since I was a pre-teen without even knowing it. I was diagnosed (or possibly mis-diagnosed) with PCOS when I was about 11. That's when the irregular (to almost non-existent) menstrual cycles, hirutism (chin, upper lip, upper and lower thighs, fingers, toes, basically everywhere) and weight problems began. I was immediately put on birth control to regulate my periods, which only made my life a living nightmare. They forced on a fake (non-ovulating) period and made my moods a disaster. I went on to be on birth control until from the age of 11 until about 3 years ago when I just couldn't take it anymore, and took myself off. I've been using herbal supplements for menstrual regulalation since then, and feel MUCH better. Over the years I've always felt like there was something "more than PCOS" wrong with me. From the extreme inability to lose weight normally, and the ease to gain it, to the weak legs, vitamen d insuffeciency, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, extreme irritability, now non-existent cycle, shortness of breath (just from walking up 1 flight of stairs), slow healing, hoarse voice, high testosterone, male pattern baldness, blurry vision, EXTREME brain fog etc..... It has been very, very, very tough and emotional over the years. It has taken a toll on my personality, emotions, and those around me....
