I’m following up on this by looking at doctors in my area. I’ve got a few leads and some contacts have been made.
I’ve had a bit of time to think about all of this, here are some random thoughts maybe some of you guys can help me think through:
- I dont FEEL like I have low Testosterone. I’m NOT depressed, I’m NOT a push over, I’m not a “beta male.” I have all the desire in the world to accomplish tasks, go to the gym, improve myself, and have no problems getting things going in my every day life. I have decent levels of “mental aggression,” (I am not a guy who would get in a verbal/physical confrontation, but things piss me off regularly), 99 days out of 100 I feel great and on top of the world.
The only “tip offs” I had that made me get my blood tested was a lack of drive to pursue girls (decrease in sex drive in general over the last year or so, not GONE but definitely down), the places I store body fat,and my results in the gym are what I would call mediocre despite a PROFOUND effort in the gym and in the kitchen. I dont have too many natty lifters to compare to on an 1:1 basis, but many of the guys at my gym are well ahead of me and I have a tough time NOT getting fat after the 170-175 pound mark.
However, not knowing how long I’ve had this issue, I have no idea what being “normal” or even “high T” feels like so maybe things will go from being good to amazing, who knows?
I would hate to start down the road to “fixing” this issue, which I dont feel really affects me much, only to mess up my hormones further or have to be “on” the rest of my life. On the other hand, I realize that my T being low means that I’m not where I should be hormonally and health wise… I “unhealthy” from that stand point and would like to fix that issue.
And quite honestly I wouldn’t mind being bigger/leaner/Stronger. This is a huge part of my life and that, above all the other issues, is the main thing I would do this for.
Anyone else have these thoughts? Any experiences anyone can share would be greatly appreciated at this point.
Obviously these are all issues I will bring up with the Doctor I decide to see, but I’m just trying to get in the community here and see what other guys are going through.
