Um… Thank you, i’m not good with sentimental or emotional things buuuutttt I will say this, you are one of the only (if not the only person) who I look up to in life (even though I don’t know you).

Strange isn’t it, I’m not always sure what the right thing to do or say is, but I try to do the right thing, sometimes I’m not sure though, anyhow that’s irrelevant, you seem look a good person who legitimately helps people in need, and I admire and look up to that (+ you’re a bodybuilder and an endocrinologist, two things I reeeeaaaaallllly want to be haha)

Anxiety is hard. It’s very curious when it comes crashing head-on against reality. Someone gave me a reality-check on something I was angsting about today, and were like “Hey, that doesn’t seem remotely realistic because of reason 1, 2 and 3.” and it was truly eye-opening with regards to this specific issue that yeah, I was being completely unrealistic.


#507

And with that said, @unreal24278, feel welcome to stop by my log or @ me wherever should you ever want to bring in a fellow anxiety-er.


#508

Since we are having an anxiety club meeting, I’m in! I’m always on here if anybody needs to vent’


#509

Haha, a nice little crew of cortisol deviants.

Maybe I should make my own thread here, and vent there instead of writing this here in-place but I just had the very frustrating experience of finding out that before I get to see a specialist they’ll want to run an additional set of tests, specifically PSA, TT, SHBG, FSH, LH and Prolactin. And I humbly started suggesting other things such as E2, Cortisol, … (I only got these two out of my mouth, I was going to go through the list that @unreal24278 gave me) before they said that only the doctor can order tests and I won’t be seeing a doctor before they do them … Talk about inefficient! The nurse I was talking to was going to try and see if she could book a phone consult with a doctor so I could suggest these things but no promises.

Oh, and expected waiting time before I get to do the tests? March.

Yea, btw I’m not actually thinking of running a cycle. Not sure why I was thinking about it this morning, sometimes I forget the situation I’m in and briefly think everything’s alright. If I ever run a proper cycle it’ll be when I’m absolutely SURE I have a fully clean bill of health psychologically, physically and when I’m not bleeding out of my ass lol (that’s a requirement haha) @charlie12 @physiolojik

I also need to get control of my diet, when I get anxious I binge, on one of the plane rides to America I probably consumed nearly 3 thousand Cals alone…


#511

I am cortisol


#512

Call it a cheat day and don’t beat yourself up over it (just don’t make it into a habit)


#513

I ate twelve packets of chips… Duck, chicken, mashed potato, copious beverages (some alcoholic some not, I look old enough that I get served no questions asked), yoghurt, cheese, fruit, salad, egg, pasta and more.


#514

Am really hungry now

@unreal24278 what is your reasons for anxiety? Has something happened in the past ( not expecting details ) or are you a worrier? I’m asking cause through my youth I have been seeing psychiatrists for depression and anxiety. I was one of these chaps that was terrified if my hair wasn’t sitting right or people think badly of me etc. I tried medications and therapy and it done nothing. The best advice I followed that actually worked, was to stop giving a fuck… the day I stopped caring was the day I felt alpha for once in my life. Sounds silly lol, but this worked for me. Over time my confidence improved and my anxiety went away.

I only care about people close in my life, family and friends, the rest can think what they want. I don’t give a fuck anymore. It’s all in the mind and how you view yourself. If you think you aren’t good enough, then you won’t be good enough, if you think you are a serious badass, chick magnet, that’s what you become… in your head anyway and that’s all matters.

Reading over your posts/ replies I think you are very interesting and smart, always giving great info and advice, unlike me, my grammar sucks but guess what ? … yep I don’t give a fuck lol


#516

I’m certainly not going into my past… But lots of stuff happened that could have caused triggered long lasting problems with anxiety, it’s not that bad though I don’t think (my past), however I’m not going into details, partially because I don’t like talking about it and partially because I don’t like thinking or reminiscing about that shit. I’ve talked about it to my psychiatrist in detail, anyway I’m dropping that subject like a hot potato. It was mostly just like prolonged bullying and some other stuff that I’m never talking about on here

I also worry a lot about things, however I believe my past experiences have a lot to do with why I’m so anxious


#517

Wasn’t expecting the details in an online forum. You are young and will more than likely improve over time. My stepson is going through a horrible time right now, he’s 17 and bullied. Only about 1 year ago 3 lads jumped him… beat him pretty bad and now he doesn’t leave the house, completely isolated. This has me worried for him with his future.

Anyway dropping the subject like a hot potato. Best of luck, its not nice with high levels of anxiety.


#518

I know how your boy is feeling. I was attacked in my parents home. Beaten with a baseball bat. Fractured skull. Broken jaw. Broken cheek bone. Almost lost my left eye. Left for dead. Woke up in the hospital with a subdural hematoma. The blood pooling on my brain was killing me. The attacker rang the doorbell when he came to my parents house. I had a severe concussion and to this day 17 years later I dont remember the actual attack but for years could not answer the door if someone rang the doorbell. Anxiety is a funny thing.


#519

God damn dude.


#520

That’s harrowing… Glad to hear you came through that, my goodness.


#521

That sounds horrific mate. Lucky to be alive by the sounds of it… karmas a bitch, here’s hoping they got what they deserve. Something like that would most certainly cause anxiety for a long time.


#522

@physioLojik you’re getting emotional there. Have you considered an AI to get your E2 under control?

:slight_smile:


#523

That’s not nice, nothing wrong with showing emotion


#524

Just like nothing wrong with the odd sarcasm to ease some of the pressure by these grim topics. :slight_smile:
