Some notes on TRT/response-remission and exercise

Posted by zonked on October 5, 2011, at 9:00:23

Hi all:

I have detested exercise my whole life. Even when I did it regularly. I find since adding testosterone to Nardil, when I climb steep hills or need to walk somewhere not close very fast, I get the "runner's high" I have been hearing about all my life, but never have had, until now.

Isn't that weird? I was in a funky mood yesterday, and ever since my first depressive episode, I've heard to, you know, exercise, go for a walk... never did crap. Now I'll be doing it regularly - something seems to have been missing in sufficient quantities in my body my whole life which is now present.

I might get a gym membership again, the first time I've had one since 1999. I've never been able to lift weights (or even do a pull up, honestly), just cardio, but now that I have more testosterone it might be worth giving a try. Anything that helps me to feel good & healthy, plus of course the superficial benefits. :-)

Exercise DOES work, but you have to be beyond severe-major-depression for it to work. And it's so frustrating to hear that suggestion over and over when it does nothing but make you frustrated.... I know. Trust me.
