Recently, a terrible tragedy happened to me and after that my mental health was just terrible. I started having severe panic attacks, hallucinations and anxiety. It happened because of the death of my friend and I tried for a long time to accept the fact that he is no longer around, but it was very difficult for me. In the end, I decided that I needed to come up with something in order to start life from scratch and I decided to change the climate and move to the USA for a while. There I found out about TGM kratom capsules and started using them. I had never used such substances before, but it helped me a lot to get back in real life and start a new chapter. Kratom gived me a second chance!

I am and have always been a firm believer that any man who walks into the doctors office with depression as the issue their there should have their hormones checked before anything else. Too often a pill is prescribed without doing ANY bloodwork to get to the potential route cause of the issue. The 'normal/healthy range' is out of whack too but, thats a whole different topic altogether.

Thanks for the article millennium girl! Interesting read, I 100% believe anyone that has or feels depressed should get their test checked. I was just talking to a friend other day ,after coming of his first cycle he was getting signs of depression and the first thing the doctor did is put him on anti depressants. They doctors are so quick to hand out anti depressants and have people walking around like zombies but ask them for a little test its like your asking for heroine from the doctor 🤨 our health system is a joke!!

our health system is a joke!!
its designed to simply make as much money as possible - anti anxiety and depression treatment industry is worth $19000000000 USD (19 billion) meanwhile suicide rates are at the highest ever since ww2. 99% of doctors dont give a fuck about you or your health, only how much they can prescribe their junk to you and get a commission. how much do they make from referring you to an endrocrinologist or prescribing some test? absolutely nothing compared to getting you hooked on some prozac. I know many people that are stuck on pills for life because their 'trustworthy' doctor fed them a load of shit, when it was in reality a lifestyle/environmental issue causing their depression, not some low serotonin which they cant even check for accurately. & how many kids these days are prescribed adderall, ritalin, vyvanse, dextro amphetamine (speed lite) at only age 7? got to wonder what it does to their developement.

also I think test can only do so much, if you had low test to begin with yea it will make a difference getting them back to normal levels, but can only do so much for your depression. its not magic nothing is. so many people lack purpose in their life its work, sleep, eat, browse (anti) socialmedia, browse tiktok and cat videos, then they wonder why they are so miserable. better go see a doctor and get those happy pills that will fix me up they assure themselves. no, youre just a zombie now that feels less it fixed nothing.

I have been on and off antidepressants since the 80’s. I was one of the first patients to be prescribed Prozac when it came on the market and it’s the only one that doesn’t turn me into a zombie. It gives me the kick that I need to get me going.
When the anti-aging specialist refused to give me a script for test I was disappointed. The high dosed DHEA didn’t really give me the boost I was looking for.

What a crooked system we have! Do you have a hormone specialist in your area?

I can tell you that, without a doubt, and 100% my low Test was the cause of my depression. For nearly a decade I suffered with it. As soon as I started TrT, within 2-3 weeks: my depression completely disappeared!

Did the one you went and saw who didn't prescribe you T do bloodwork to see if there is any issues with hormones?
Yes he did a full blood work and said that I needed Euthyral for my thyroid (the cardiologist made me stop taking it after a month or two because I had bad tachycardia), m’y test levels were not low enough to get testosterone, reason why he prescribed DHEA. I was pissed because I’ve always wanted to try test (but under supervision).

Hi mate, frankly speaking, I don't recommend you to use testosterone for treating the depression. Likely for you, I have a special secret med that totally solve all my nervous disorders’ I have been experiencing the anxiety and panic attack for 2 years and I suffer a lot even have insomnia and could be very nervous and unable to stay at work. The Etizolam treat and improve my nervous system and beneficially act on my feeling and mood. It could be the perfect cure of all your problems with depression and anxiety. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here you will find more information about Etizolam - worldpharm365.com.

Suffering from low test levels for a number of years accompanied by various symptoms, including depression; TRT, without a doubt, aided in bringing me back and the increased overall well-being was significant.

I would like to say that I can’t 100% be sure .
but I was always a little bit down on myself sometimes. I don’t think I had low test, but I definitely had some issues .

and Once I did a low dose of test , it’s like all the stars aligned . My life took an incredible turn and suddenly my worries were so easily brushed off.

That MD thought it was because I always feel cold and tired.
Keep this in mind when dealing with doctors. They provide sick care, not health care. They push pills, not diets. Not sure what the bloodwork they ran on you looked like or what they checked for but, go back and ask to get these things checked:
Iron and B12, most females are deficient in both.
Vit D.
A1C just to be sure .
Electrolyte panel.
Hemoglobin.

See whats going on with those first and if something is off fix it with diet. Don't take any medication if they push it. You'll be able to remedy all of it provided youre not a diabetic with diet.

Ensure you are also getting enough iodine daily to help thyroid function.

Last full blood work shows low hematocrit, low vit D, too much urea. The rest is within limits.
I have a PET scan next week but I will start taking my usual supplements in August (Solgar iron, Metagenics iodine, D-Cure).

I guess, it's okay to feel sad, sometimes even depressed, but if you're concerned that it may be any trouble with your medical indicators, it's better to check them from time to time
