Why I chose testosterone replacement therapy

  Many people have asked me why I chose testosterone replacement therapy. I had been experiencing perimenopausal symptoms starting in my 30’s, with weight gain, foggy thinking, almost depression-like symptoms that had gone on for years.

Thoughts of suicide

  I had thoughts of suicide. It was January 2012 and I was standing in the parking lot at work on the phone with Kevin. I was a nervous wreck, everything about me had changed. My thoughts, my look, and this overwhelming feeling of compulsion. I had never felt this way before, I told him, “I am saying this out loud but I am not going to do it, I feel like committing suicide.” I had felt my life was out of control and I couldn’t do anything about it.Read More
