    What my GP Doesn't Understand

    My GP doesnít understand why Iím on TRT.

    Most people donít understand why I do it and they see it as either cheating nature or risking my health for aesthetic reasons, but when I take a step back, Iím glad they donít understand. Iím thankful that they have never experienced the feeling of losing all glimmers of hope or the feeling of fear when you realize tomorrow will feel exactly the same as today.

    Iíve been in some very dark places. Iíve experienced what 8 years of depression feels like. Iíve experienced what it feels like to go to the doctor, beg him for help, and have him hand you a waiver that says if you kill myself heís not responsible, write you script for an anti-depressant, and advise you to pray.

    I began TRT in November of 2012. I didnít start because I was looking for a short cut. It started because I was looking for a way to live. I wanted to be eager for life. I wanted to want to make love to my wife. I wanted to feel progression.

    Iím not the same guy I was 8 months ago. Without a doubt, my body has changed. Iíve gained 16 lbs. Iíve become more muscular, and Iím lifting weights that havenít been within the realm of possibility since I was 18. It not just physical youth that TRT gives you, though. It gives you spirit.
    Those who donít understand TRT have never truly had their spirit broken; so they can never understand how good it feels when itís finally mended. They donít understand what itís like be on TRT and enjoy your music loud, your weights heavy, be a walking erection, and be proud of the man youíve become.

    My GP recommends ceasing my TRT. **** him. The lucky bastard doesnít understand.

    What are the reasons he gave for you to cease your TRT?

    His sole rationale for advising that I cease therapy was that his office didn’t subscribe to eastern medicine and , in so many words, feeling like shit was part of getting older. I think that’s the only argument he could make. Since starting TRT, my I’ve lowered cholesterol and kept my BP within reasonable limits and stopped taking anti-depressants and cialis. The irony is that since I’ve stopped taking the meds he has prescribed, my liver and kidney values have finally fallen into the “normal” range. My blood work is better now that it was before treatment. He’s just hung up on the T number. Truth be told, I’ve been healthier since starting treatment than I was under his care, not to mention feel better.

    And my apologies if my first post is a bit of a rant. It’s frustrating to finally feel good and have someone tell you that feeling good is abnormal. TRT has given me my life back and it’s so hard to explain that to someone who’s not in the community. I guess that's why I love this board so much.

    A lot of this has to be the stigma associated with steroids. I myself have taken several psychotropics for varying reasons and wouldn't wish the side effects on anyone and yet those all seem to get prescribed like they were skittles.

    And, I am getting so sick of hearing people, much less doctors, say "feeling like shit is just part of getting old". ****ing Wow.
