Can I ask, not to get anyone in trouble, but is the only way to get a hold of actual testosterone thru a physician? I know it’s prescribed, but for me, I can’t pursue that really.
I’ve tried to befriend guys at the gym, who could possibly have access to roids, but that’s not panned-out to get me connected. It’s a difficult thing to explain, but i’m not a Trans-male, but someone who was born with a condition called Klinefelter Syndrome, meaning I was born male, but later learned I was born with an extra X chronsome, and it puts me on the XXY gender spectrum. About 1 in 500 male births qualify as XXY. I’m of normal intelligence, though people with the disorder tend to be of less-than-average IQs,and have a feminine body for a man, and had gynecomastia and removal surgery for that. It’s been a very difficult road for me, and, as you can imagine, it’s a difficult life to manage. To sort of weirdly complicate my own life, I only ever attended boy’s Catholic schools, so, you can guess how that played out. I often have been mistaken for a girl, and have had the three-times-repeated experience of being at a gay bar, and asked if I was a trans-woman, meaning that I was born and raised as a woman, but transitioned to a male appearance. It’s odd then, when i’ve wanted to become more male in appearance. I have low testosterone, but that is not something you can ask a doctor to help you resolve. They don’t seem to get it, and it’s incredibly hard for me to pursue myself. And I want to be in control of my own body, and not given a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, or suffer through the process of constantly being under the microscope. And then as a gay man, who does not look “GQ-ready”, is a terrible thing to go through. I turned to you guys, I guess because you could sort of relate. Thanks and thanks for listening.
European consumption rooms cater more so to users older than 30 years, mainly with problematic heroin and cocaine habits. Various studies have documented an ageing population of clients over time. Whereas in 1990, in one study, 50% of clients were 25 years or younger, by 2001 the percentage was 15%. Clients across European consumption rooms are characterized by heavy injecting drug use, a continuous use of illicit drugs and deriving from a poorer demographic. German studies found that between 19% and 27% of clients were from unstable accommodation. In the injecting rooms near Madrid 42% of the marginalized target group were homeless, while the number was 60% for the Can Tunis area of Barcelona. In a German study 15% of clients had never accessed addiction treatment of any kind.
