This is too funny; just a minute ago I remembered to click on A Leaf of Faith on Netflix, and right away the film maker mentioned that he had made "Bigger, Stronger, Faster", a documentary about steroids as a performance enhancing drug.

Cray,
Go for it. If you can fix a computer like you did, there are tons of car repair and maintenance videos.:-bd
I used to do all my car repairs. Now it is a struggle to be motivated to change the oil. :ohmy:

Unlimited kratom access may have contributed but the “deca” described sounds more in line with what he was trying to explain to me.

Don has put out a good reminder as well. But I absolutely know how much it means to be able to do stuff myself!

I installed my car replacement headlights! Haha.
Super easy on a Fiat! YouTube is helpful as well.

There is great reward in accomplishing things! That’s what this community has in common - everyone wants to be able to do - stuff - for ourselves or others!

I bought an electronic repair kit and opened up my macbook twice in a month to fix two separate problems that Apple told me i'd have to buy a new computer for (scum crooks). I literally put in at least a combined effort of 15 hours disassembling it and just replicating youtube videos. Even bought a heat gun and literally took it to my Graphics Card inside my computer!!!! some people actually take the main logic board outside of the computer and put it in the OVEN to fix it! :blink: i thought they were trolling me, but it actually worked, and I never opened up a computer in my life!! Then I literally drilled mini holes in the bottom of my computer near the fans so it wouldn't overhear :lol:. I'm rambling now.

good on you for fixing your headlights. Although it does seem like a small task, I wish i had more car repair skills instead of taking it to the mechanic for thousands of dollars to get it working again :-/
never too late i guess.

Deca "masking the pain" and joints ending up WORSE after cycle. How common is this?

I was set to do a second cycle of test + deca but I'm having second thoughts.

Doing research on different forums, I see everyone loves deca for the joint relief. Big consensus there.

But quite a few people say their joints felt WORSE after cycle... Because they were able to train a lot with no pain felt, but they actually damaged their joints in the process. There was no pain telling them they were going too far, but the pain came back with a vengeance once off deca.

How common is this?

i know some steroids are horrible for your joints especially in copious amount. just taking some of them alone are bad for them, but you also have to remember that most people taking them are lifting heavy weights in addition to that and they're increasing their load QUICKLY due to their strength increasing from the anabolics, but their bones may not be able to keep up with the stress they're putting on their muscles.

Winstrol is a popular steroid to "lean" out that can severely dehydrate your joints. People actually take Deca to counteract that from my research. But it sounds like Winstrol + Kratom + low hydration + sweating/fluid loss = a bad time. Some people just don't hydrate nearly enough as they should.

Great job Laurie.:-bd
Some car headlights can be a pita to replace. I have to remove the battery to replace one of mine.

I don't know anything about deca? :-?
I do know now to be careful of "pushing past the signs that may have been covered by the pain relieving properties of kratom and or incarvillea". :dry:

I used incar and Kratom to knock back my pain before putting up an antenna on my chimney 2 weeks ago. I have been suffering ever since. My legs actually buckled while moving a 30ft ladder. If I had felt pain then I might have realized how dumb I was being. Now all the joints in my hands, wrists, elbows, knees, and shoulders are killing me.:(
At my age I should know better. :ohmy:

Some very wise man once said "stupid is as stupid does" :blink:

But my babe can now watch ion tv over the air. :-bd

My mention of it was quite a reach from the thread topic. But extra hugs and empathy is ALWAYS APPRECIATED and I appreciate you!

I’m still so amazed and grateful for stories like yours, Somethingsacred Brandon! Thanks for sharing a good deal of your challenges with a big virtual smile! :)

That’s super crummy !! I feel tremendous empathy for your friend Laurie... I have spondylosis.... whether from genetic disposition or rough on my body when younger ( many injuries) or both !!! Kratom gave me quality of life, gave me my life back !!

My intuition is that while kratom can help alleviate pain, probably not the culprit.... being rough on the body , pushing past the signs that may have been covered by the pain relieving properties of kratom... ...?? Don’t know enough about steroids to comment .. but I’ve debated the possible use testosterone as a replacement therapy as I’m getting older ( don’t laugh... I’m 38!! ) but I know those levels go down as the years go by ...

I’m sorry to hear his need for new hips ... big compassion for him ... we all need to pay attention to what our body is trying to tell us ....

Moderation and balance is tricky ... more so for some ,

I hope his recovery is fast and thorough, and that there’s a big learning from all of this , sending big healing vibes his way !!!



Either way , I’m sorry he had to go through that ,
