Experience

Cleared my skin up completely, I’ve got thicker hair now which is nice. Sex drive is completely gone, I felt depressed and paranoid in the first few months, ended up distancing from my close friends for no reason. I’m less impulsive and more anxious on the whole. My mood is definitely better now ive been on it longer but I don’t ever feel bursts of happiness like I used to. Just a constant mediocre mood I guess. Also my progress in the gym is very slow now. Probably due to the lack of testosterone in my body. I am extremely tired all the time unless I take vitamin c tablets daily. And my immune system is awful I can’t shake off a cold for weeks.
