    pushed the doctor for blood work on account of sex drive issues and feeling depressed and i was curious anyway

    doctor called and said it was 883 and wanted to know if i was injecting :rofl:

    looks like i dont have any excuses there

    now i have no excuses and just need to get back in the gym in push myself harder

    and eat more, a lot more

    as far as the depression goes i just started a low dose of wellbutrin which will hopefully help with my ADHD too

    i am too, im against most drugs in general

    had adhd growing up was on a number of things when i was younger, learned to deal/cope with it and got off the drugs, wellbutrine was one of them so i am familiar with it

    had some pretty bad drepression about 2 years ago and went on citralopram (cealis?) for about 6 months till i was back on my feet. it was pretty rough emotionally, would site and star out of a window for like 2-3 hours

    more than likely ill be on this for 4-5 months get my shit in order and be fine


    ive found eating/diet and getting out and into the gym to take care of almost all of my issues if i stick to it

    i dont have it yet, they didnt do a full panel i dont think, i had a hard enough time pushing for test (first time with the doc as well)

    but cholosteral was 168 LDL 109, thyroid was right in the middle / perfect looking

    i think i am just going to start pushing for a full panel every 6-12 months... would be interesting to watch how everything changes in regards to diet/gym/stress/life

    yeah, i didnt want to tick this one off, hes a great guy. ended up with him by chance and turned out to be an aquaintence of the family... in the long run it will be fine i think, plus he is really open to referels for sports therapy and the likes for my muscle headaches
