Irritable Male Syndrome
In researching my problem, I came across this quiz on theirritablemale.com. I sored 144 on this test. Of course, I was irritable when I took it. Go to his site if you want to take the real quiz. I am just here to poke fun at it really.
Here are the emotions you are supposed to rate as Most of the Time, Frequently, Sometimes, and Not at all for the past month.
|Desire to eat|
|Desire to use drugs or alcohol|
|Need to withdraw behind TV, newspaper or computer|
|Need to sleep more or have trouble with sleep|
|Urge to smoke more|
|Urge to drink caffine|
The causes of this syndrome are stress related and can be caused by low male hormones or increased female hormones. I am just wondering how this relates to the gay man. I do think though that if I had some testosterone put in the right places, by the right carrier, I might feel better.
