Thank you'all for talking about testosterone!
I didn't expect to find any discussion about it here on PsychoBabble, but I'm certainly glad I did!

I started testosterone self-injections 2x a week a little over 6 weeks ago after consulting with a NP at a clinic up in Kansas City that specializes in hormonal health. I've known that I have very low T for a couple of years; I can bet I've had low levels since I was a teenager. Isn't it very ironic that at my doctor visit after my very first depressive episode, way back in 1982, that the only thing the doctor could say was, "It's probably just hormones"!

So I never gave it much thought all these years that my testosterone could have anything to do with my years of depression and anxiety. And taking fluoxetine for over 30 years certainly hasn't helped my T-levels.

So, it's really encouraging to read about Jay's experience with testosterone replacement therapy.

I'm hoping to get my first levels check this week or next week since starting therapy.
I'm trying to be patient with seeing some benefits.

Thanks again for the discussion!

> First, get your testosterone levels checked. I was only low by a very small fraction on my lab test. And, what happened to me before is happening again. After 4-5 months of daily "T", I am feeling very good, quite like the stormin' 30 year old guy I used to be. I have my "MOJO" back, I sleep awesome, and I have both more energy to do LOTS of things..and more optimistic .I lost much of my "grumpiness", and I have some new goals and ideas in life. And MY GAWD...sex is INCREDIBLE!!
