The power of speech

The power of speech presented by Robert Downey Jr.

Just watch the youtube video and answer the poll.

Is it possible,when poisers are on POIS,to speak and behave like that while having a conversation.

I presented this link just to illustrate what I mean by strong speech and charsmatic behaviour so take it just as a very general example.

Yes we can I think.But it is at least for me 1000 harder compared when not in P.O.I.S
I don't want to sound like I am praisim myself.

But before I fall in POIS related depression I was quite comunicative,good speaker,good with words and in expressing myself.
Since my P O I S was not always severe, I was quite sociable even when in POIS.(I didn't enjoy,but I was somethimes good,sometimes very good in making jokes,selling products,and in general making bussines deals with with other people,and even with girls).
Main problem was for me  while in POIS was not to hurt anyone,since I don't really have system of values in P.O.I.S and how to show attidude with damaged memory and that "guilt and shamed" felling.
About Charizma,let's say that when in POIS I gave ( I don't go out if I don't have to anymore) more cold,closed guy and always on distance impression,more ironic and careless.
and when not in POIS positive,frienldy,life and  people loving ,and in general open and warm.

no sugar diet helps me a tiny bit, also makes my mind much calmer in general. Sugar is definitely something my body does not handle well. Also I noticed that other inflammations like a hangover are better since I quit sugar. I avoid sweet fruits as well.

Hi Spartak,

I think you described very well the personality changes that many of us have gone through.

Excruciating to be in the grip of a massive change imposed by a basic human expression. Going from what we can be (when free) and the things we can do so easily as younger men (without pois) versus the uncontrollable limits that guys have to fight against when the beast of POIS takes a grip.

Most people who suffer from depression find this alone hard enough, the other complicating symptoms in pois types show the obvious courage of the guys here to keep fighting on.

It does get better slowly, even if we might never get to be as 'cool and collected' as the actor In the YouTube clip.

Respect to all poisers !

10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

LoL nice Demo :)
You are proof for this topic that POISER's can have good sense of humor ;)

Hi,Colm2

Thank you for kind words
I completly agree with you.
I also think that POISers (when ok)in communication can be very funny,creative etc
Simply because we are able to see and feel things that normal people can't even imagine.
To be more precise I am pretty sure that in terms of personality average people are way more superficial then we are.

I have speech problems too, and they get worse after O.

However, I did find that listening to loud music at night for about an hour or so has the effect of greatly reducing my symptoms the next day. My voice gets lower, more relaxed, and speaking takes almost no effort.

I tried to reproduce this a couple of times, and it seems to work.

Unfortunately, it's not a real solution because I don't want to damage my ears. But I found it interesting enough to post about it. Perhaps others can confirm?
