Fair warning: I have worked the last 3 nights and there’s always the possibility of being loopy before getting sleep.
Covid-19 has obviously impacted everyone, for my wife and I it’s been a much different impact. As I’ve said before, we are both ICU nurse’s, and this whole shit show just straight up hasn’t been any fun. 0/5 stars. 0/10 would not recommend being an ICU nurse during a pandemic. It has gotten me thinking about the direction of my career, staying at the bedside where all the action is VS going back to school and slowing it down a bit.
These days telehealth is the big thing, you can get a script for viagra, cialis, hair loss, anti aging peptides, and etc all by filling out a short form, sending in a picture, having a quick chat with a provider, and giving them your money.
My dad recently started TRT and quite frankly I was appalled at the lack of education he received before picking up his Test at the pharmacy. Thankfully, he was coming for a visit the next week anyway, and I was able to provide him with some education as well as safe injection technique etc.
In my post work delirium I have started to wonder if there are any telehealth TRT docs/ nurse practitioners/ physician assistants out there now? For those of you on trt, is there anything (besides lab work) that is specific to your TRT provider that requires an office visit? Would you find it more beneficial to simply be able to video chat or message your provider about your TRT plan?
I have become more and more aware about the basic lack of knowledge (at least amongst ICU nurses and physicians) about hormone replacement therapies and the benefits. Plus we all know it’s so rare to find a provider that’s even open to hearing about playing this game, much less one that would help you do things safely and efficiently. I enjoy they gym, gear, teaching, learning, and this post work delirium idea kind of sounds like it would incorporate all of those things.
Sorry for rambling. I did try and warn you on the front end.
