Hey there.. sorry I don't understand about testosterone levels or know very much about it but I can understand how hormones can effect moods, trust me I'm a nightmare twice a month!! Lol...
I'm really pleased that you have cut the weed and booze, it can't have been easy..
I'm sensing with what you have said that things aren't gonna get better overnight and the mood states won't be helped by the withdrawal from the drugs and booze, it must seem that you made a huge effort to sort yourself out and you're not feeling the benefits yet, but you will, don't give up!!
I think what's going on here is that your brain has had to deal with lots of chemical changes and its left you feeling very low, it happens all the time, people often think that getting off booze and stuff will miraculously cure things, but basically the booze, weed and stimulants were feeding your moods and your brain, and now you need safe chemicals to create balance, the balance chemically you are craving. I think it takes people 18-24 months to recover emotionally from this kind of problem, that's without help.
What you've also got to consider is you will still feel depressed and anxious without the drugs because you haven't addressed the reason why you started using them in the first place.. you need to find new ways of coping with life and for this part of your recovery I think therapy is a must, some men find this hard at first but its really helpful, everybody needs emotional support as well as meds.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are Bipolar to be honest, I'm sensing something more than depression but that could be because you've gone through this without help and support..
I hope you don't think I'm blaming all this on the booze and weed cos I'm not, its from experience..
I think you should start the meds.. this new doctor, is she a pyschiatrist? If not id suggest being referred to one, you need assessing and then the diagnosis would be correct. A lot of doctors contradict eachother and you might find your diagnosis could change, mine did a few times, I am bipolar.
Good luck! Keep going back to the doctor until you feel satisfied about the hormone level, as you're quite right, they do make you feel rubbish!
Ask as much questions as you need to :)
Yes i believe low testosterone levels can cause depression, but you may want to do more research by googling it as i am not a doctor. You haven't mentioned anything about having mania symptoms so not sure about the bipolar although cant rule that out. Have you tried seeing a psychologist, i mean a good one that you like and get along with? I think if you don't want to go on meds that would be a really good thing. Seeing on e doesn't mean your crazy either heaps of people go through therapy. If you do want to get a good doctor and go down the medication road then defiantly seeing a psychiatrist doctor would be great. I think for the best help getting an accurate diagnosis and supported treatment is a good place to start.
