Problems with self-esteem
« on: June 14, 2019, 08:48:11 PM »
So the title of this post might be a little weird, but the question is valid. Does anyone else struggle with low self-esteem during a POIS cycle? Normally my self-esteem is fine, I am a confident guy, enjoying life, but during pois cycle I become timid, anxious, and appear to others as if I have very low self-esteem....anyone else with the same problems? This is one of the worst parts of a cycle for me...for 2 or 3 days i act like a coward sometimes.

These symptoms are a staple of POIS. People associate POIS with flu like symptoms but I argue POIS is more characterized by neuropsychological symptoms, often unnoticeable by doctors.

10 years of major 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 associated with it.

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

I have never been happy with the “flulike” description of POIS.

I think it came about from Dr Waldinger’s first finding with only 2 patients, and a subsequent publicity effort that really caught on with mass media, TV, newspapers, magazines.

It made POIS “easy-to-understand” for the general public.

We’re now finally ready for a new public perception!

You can"t have self-esteem problems : if you have Pois, you are a hero !  8)

Seriously it's a typical and common symptom of Pois, a mini-depression episode I think.
