I'm in Finance studying in Montreal Canada. I don't believe this introvert thing, I've been a complete extrovert all my life and suddenly I have pois. Anyways I don't think we're disadvantaged we just have an extra part in our life that needs to be dealt with. Don't lose hope gentlemen and please don't let sorry sags post in these forums about their sorry life. We need to stay strong and positive otherwise well accomplish nothing but stay home feel sorry about ourselves.

P.s. I am looking for a pois sufferer in Montreal please contact me:)

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

Former software engineer turned sales guy.  Direct impact of my disease.  I found I simply couldn't keep up mentally with the demands of managing enterprise software projects.  Everyone expects sales guys to be a little slow and erratic.  I fit in perfectly!  : )
22 years POIS-like symptoms. It's been a long road...

Physicist here. Skipped almost all colleges and only showed up for experimentation and exams. Couldn't even sit in a chair properly due to POIS.

Zero ability to pay attention and less ability to follow in class equaled a lot self study.

From the book 'tuning the brain':
"Endothelin, being one of the most vasoconstrictive substances known, could account for the increased global cerebral hypoperfusion seen after fatiguing stimuli, notably exercise but also after mental tasks."

The jury is still out wether i have pois or not, but i'm a chemical engineer. Could be a sign then  ;)

And my educational background, I have a B.S. in chemical engineering...

Exposure to chemicals?

Ukrainian paper:
"(the patient is higher education, specialty "electrical engineering and works in shifts at the power plant)"

There is also a POISer in the paper from Dr. Stafie with a 'demanding job'...whatever that may be.

Many engineers...hyperactive brains?

I didn't even look these up but remember them. Then you have Kurtosis, nanna1, HOD who are engineers/scientists if I'm not mistaken and the list goes on.
