Noah Thomas, creator of this channel was diagnosed with hypogonadism and legally prescribed Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Noah is my name. On May 2011,, I experienced a rare reaction to VIVITROL. This led me to spiral into suicidal depression and anxiety. In 4 weeks, I lost 25 pounds and experienced 8 weeks of panic attacks or near panic. This was combined with the worst depression I could have imagined. I couldn’t work immediately and was forced to live with my parents 24/7. They, along with many of their siblings, had to keep an eye on me7 because I was a threat to myself. I ended up spending a week in the Psych Ward. It was difficult to get through each day and I was certain I would die. Many different SSRI’s SNRIs Tricyclics, mood stabilizers, anti-psychotics and holistic meds were prescribed to me. I even received RTMS shock therapy. For a whole year, I saw no improvement in my condition. It was determined that I had severe treatment-resistant depression. I was unable to stop crying and spent almost every minute in pain. My latest round of medication (Seroquel and Nortryptaline), was completed. I had my blood drawn to check for hormone imbalances. The average male has . This discovery gave me an explanation for why I wasn’t getting better and what might have caused my illness. Low T symptoms are similar to major depression. Soon after, I was legally prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. Since then, I have been keeping track of my experiences and sharing my insights and perspectives on mental health topics. Over the past 6 years, I have seen my mental health improve and become more stable than I ever imagined. Over a year, my low testosterone manifested in major depression, anxiety, depersonalization/ derealization. Although I was able to treat my low testosterone, it was only one piece of the puzzle. I have had to keep working hard to maintain my mental stability despite many setbacks. It was a miracle that I gained some mental stability back after being near death for so long. Although I don’t consider myself completely healed, I feel closer than ever and plan to use the lessons I have learned to help others. I was able successfully to get off my Seroquel/ Pamelor.
As part of my mental health recovery, I exercise all the time. My free time is dominated by weight training and cardio, which I share on my YouTube channel.
