Why are you not donating?
« on: September 25, 2011, 01:20:55 AM »
This poll is anonymous.  Nobody will be able to see what you've voted.  The goal here is to find out why people aren't donating so we can hopefully fix the issue.

You also won't be able to see the poll results until you vote.   Thank you in advance for your help with this.

I'm having some pretty serious personal issues, as soon as I come around, I'll find a way to deliver my pledge. I'd be happy to donate right now, but I can't risk financial uncertainty, because of my poor health. I'm guessing a lot of suferrers are struggling to make ends meet and in no way living a luxury self funded lifestyle.

Thank you, Green!

Insightful comment.
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

Good idea !  :)
For the section "other" please, write us in a post what is this reason, it would help a lot (even if we are not in a quantitative marketing research... :P)

Habibou, excellent suggestion!

If you are someone who voted  "other" and are hesitant to post your reason, PLEASE send a Private Message CONFIDENTIALLY to either me, Daveman, or B_Daniel, the poll author. So we can better determine our status.

THANKS everyone who replied to the poll!!!!

My situation is similar to Green's. Got a load of college loans to pay off and I don't have a job. Completely depended on my mom and she's been struggling to pay the bills. I won't have any money to donate in at least a year.
Taking ginger tea, no wheat, fenugreek+green tea/garlic, saw palmetto, niacin, boswellia, huperzine, B complex and nutmeg. See my treatment summary post for more info: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=81.msg3513#msg3513

I put "other" because there isn't a place to put "future pledge", or will be in th future.

I am in a very tight financial situation, but even so, I give this more priority than just about anything else in the near future.

I hope to find at least $100 before the end of February.

WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

daveman, perhaps the name of the post should be "why have you not donated YET", and then your best response would be "don't have the money (YET)"  :P

The poll wasn't perfectly created.  I should have had a column for 'pledged $" as well.  And responses can't be edited after they're logged.  Regardless I think that the poll responses show a rough picture of what's going on.  Thank you to everyone that voted!
