    Triple this. Your body needs sleep to build and repair, when I talked to my dr about those same issues I explained my sleep patterns (or lack thereof ) his response was I didn't need treatments I needed sleep. It's not necessarily the length of but the quality of the sleep that's important.
    I'd ask my dr about about a sleep apnea test as well. Just because you're relatively young and fit doesn't mean you're breathing right.

    Dont drink tap water lol

    Good frind from me had this. Had very good results, but had mood swings. Just be mindful they put you on the right meds so you're body doesnt start over over producing esteogen to make up for excess test. You will grow titties if this happens

    I’m not saying you shouldn’t get a full blood work panel completed to rule out other potential problems, but I’m guessing the lack of sleep is the main issue. I recently (the last month) went through a similar problem. Had my shoulder rebuilt and was only sleeping 1.5-3 hours a night because I couldn’t get comfortable. I was tired, irritable, lashing out and losing my mind. My surgeon prescribed my 5 mg ambien. Only enough for 3 weeks to get me through this. I’m getting 6-7 hours uninterrupted now and feel great. You can try anything you want but 3 hours of sleep continually is going to make you sick in some form. You’ve got to find a quiet, dark place and sleep man.

    It’s not the ability not to sleep it’s the amount of time available. I have three kids at home doing virtual learning from kindergarten to 6th grade. These aren’t teacher led it’s mostly all online based. They won’t allow our kids back to in person until the new school year. Wife works full time in days so I’m working and teaching then a little sleep then back to work.

    He never grew knockers lol. The best doctors for HRT are those who see a lot of trans people

    I get it man. I have 2 young ones. Without adequate sleep, I don’t know how effective other treatments might be. I hope you work it out and all is well
