Month 39 and still PAWS / protracted withdrawal.
I was mostly unemployed and I'm not working right now. I have mostly received unemployment benefits and currently live off my savings. I don't do anything. I am mostly at home. I lie in my bed more than I sit or stand.
I spend my day mostly watching movies and series. I try to distract myself as much as I can. I have no drive to work or study. I don't even have the motivation to shower or shave. I do it sometimes though, because I feel a little better afterwards.
You should read his symptoms before going full David Goggins mode.Your belief, your call.
You decided for yourself to stay in bed.
Thus you get all the benefits which the bed can give you. Which is not much.
The broken leg guy who chose to stay in bed will find his leg muscles atrophy. He'll still have walking problems unless he goes for physiotherapy.
Physiotherapy is pain.
Physiotherapy is hard work. One needs to tear away scar tissue to regain range and ability.
Pay the price, gain the freedom.
If you're here to find help, then use it.
If you're here to prove your cause, well, I don't know who here can help or benefit from it. If you continue what you're doing, which is just watching and waiting, then it's only fair that you receive its just results.
Guys are here because they want to get out. And so far going out and enduring has helped us to get out.
Abstinence is only 20% of reboot.
The next 40% is replacement.
The final 40% is repair.
This 100% all require the self to change perspective, behavior, thinking and realization.
Stephen hawkings is the golden proof.
He is bed bound but unbounded. He is worse off than any of us but more liberated than all of us.
He decided regardless of his condition he was going to get things done. I've met both physically and mentally handicap people who do more with their limitations than full bodied mentally sound and intelligent people have.
It's not easy.
But if you don't pay the price, you won't get the benefits.
Ok.. what do you think, is it time to test something? For example U can pretty safely try testosterone injections for few months and see where it takes you? If it doesn't help you, you can always just quit.
When two doctors showed no interrest in my situation i went to gym and talked with a big guy. Asked if there are a testosterone bottles for sale. He said yes, i told him i want to buy, then he told me to wait for two weeks. Now two weeks have passed and i'm fucking excited. I'm 99% sure my problems will go away soon after when i start injecting.
That is my solution for this seemingly endless problem. I don't want to waste my life waiting for something that might not happen. My T levels will not sky rocket anymore. They keep getting lower every year. If i can have strong libido, motivation and energy with weekly injections that's fine with me.
Have you thought this possibilty? One might have normal total T levels but still have low libido because of low FREE T LEVELS. Or estrogen might be too high?
I shall report my feelings somewhere here soon when the t-injections start to kick in
Ok. Seems you have a plan and determination. That's good! I hope u get better. I have tested my levels and they are low(ish) so i go for the injections. I just hope i get them. Big guy promised two weeks. I gave him my number.. let's see where this takes me.NO! I will never do this.
Most people are just not patient. Everyone wants to be cured immediately and looks for something that does not bring the cure anyway.
I let my brain and body heal naturally without any medications (drugs), injections or anything else.
Time and abstinence will lead to healing.
