New member, looks like a great site for info!
Little background, always have been above average athlete and very strong since around 11 years old. Lifted weights all thru college etc and scoffed at the "juicers" who I was always stronger than. Hit the 30s, life got busy, stressful etc. Diet suffered, got a few injurys. So now late 30s, no energy, no libido for like 8 years. Spent lots of $ on otc supps to try to fix myself, fatigue sups, testosterone sups.
I still look like I lift and muscle memory comes back fast when I actually have energy to exercise. I felt stupid even asking the doctor about it since I appear to workout(what would he think?), finally got a blood test and was at 285, down further from 320 4 years ago. He has always been quick to give anti depressants before.
After a lot of reading should I have started trt? Probably should've tried harder at diet and stress reduction I guess, but with 0 energy or will??
Anyways It took 4 hours to get up the courage to inject the first 1ml dose after watching damn youtube videos. I felt like a horrible cheater.
I have a lot more reading to do, appears there are might be a few things I should be doing along with the testosterone injections like maybe DIM and hcg.
If the trt got me into shape is there the possibility I could come off it and actually recover a more normal level of testosterone or am I stuck on this for good? At this point in life I care more about libido and looking/feeling halfway decent, no more personal records or gym ego is needed.
I'm on week 2, feel a little more energy. I don't think I've done a workout over 25 mins in over 3 years so hoping to get past that point 1st.
