    Worst Experience of my Life

    Just thought I'd share something that happened to me recently that completely demotivated me.

    So I've been cycling for a few years now. My most recent cycles have been just test/tren , which by the way are the most effective cycles for me. With test at trt dose of 100/mg per week and tren at 400-500mg week. Hardly any sides, great gains, great results overall. At 500mg of tren I start getting insomnia and hot flashes but its manageable so I keep my cycles between 400-500 depending on the gear I get.

    Anyway, so after busting my ass at the gym, eating right and doing everything Im supposed to I manage to get to 246 solid pounds. Body fat was floating at around 11-12%. I was looking f*cking solid. So a little over a month ago I get this nasty throat infection. When I say nasty, I mean it was HORRIBLE. It felt like everytime I swallowed, I was swallowing nails. Doc thought I had strep so he put me on antibiotics. Antibiotics didnt do shit...wasnt strep. I went 8 straight days without eating one bite of food. Nature has its way of ****ing with you because even though you dont actually eat, your body still feeds itself on the hard earned muscle you gained at the gym. 8 days of not eating and I dropped damn near 20lbs of muscle and fat. The pain was so intense I could hardly even drink water. Even with the hydrocodone they prescribed me it still hurt like hell.

    Day 9 I was finally able to put down a soup. It stayed like that for the next 7 days. So I went a total of 15 days, half of which I ate absolutely nothing and the other half I went eating soup and crackers. After those two weeks I was down to a measly 218 lbs. And I only say measly because Im comparing it to where I was at...246lbs. Huge change. Now I look look skinny, completely different than I did before. I look in the mirror and it devastates me knowing I lost over a years worth of work in a measly 15 days. No motivation to go to the gym so Im taking a break to deal with this. Unless youve gone through it, there are no words to explain the way I feel. It's a trip how everything can change in the blink of an eye. It sucks but I guess I'll figure it out. Only good thing that came out of this is now I think Im down to 6% bf lol... if not lower.

    Just thought I share this with you guys. Not much I could have done to prevent it. Definite eye opener though.

    You'll get it back. Sorry to hear that. If it happens again inject something to preserve muscle.

    Hope you feel better.

    I stayed on my trt dose bro but apparently it wasn't enough to counter the lack of food.

    Bummer man sorry to hear that has happened to you. Keep your chin up eat big work hard it will be back faster this time the fibers have atrophied but they are there and will remember what to do just feed them and keep them activated in the gym and get plenty of rest to let them build back.

    Blood, Sweat and Tears are the price of admission how you define them is what makes the difference between success and staying the same ever week/month/ or year.

    Thanks guys, that's what i'm hoping for. Weird thing is I NEVER get sick. I wonder if running tren for so long on and off weakened my immune system at all.

    I got molested for my 28th birthday yesterday, getting a massage from a guy at Spa. ... if that makes you feel any better. Maybe not the worst experience of my life, but It's up there for sure.

    As soon as you get back to normal eating you'll gain a shit load of that back. A substantial amount of that weight loss will be water.

    Good luck

    Ive got one of the best cures for BAD sore throat and it works instantly. Gargle with Cyan pepper mixed with warm water. No, it doesn't taste bad like you would think.

    Been there done that to many time. Lets try torn shoulder needing surgery, detached retina needing surgery, detached lens from the retina surgery. Yeah sh*t happens and all you can do is take it with a grain of salt. It's just life.

    Did you find out what the sore throat was all about? That's a very long time for a sore throat.

    The fact that you are telling us this means you're still with us BB' ers. Good luck and muscle memory is great. You body will snap back with the water and the mass that comes with it. A large % of muscle is water. Perseverance, hard to put up but you'll improve each week. ...crazy mike

    It was some viral infection. Tonsils are still a bit swollen and its been over a month but at least it doesnt hurt anymore and I can actually eat. Yeah theres nothing I can really do other than brush it off and hit it hard again. Its just a bitch seeing all your hard work go to shit.

    Antibiotics don't work against viral infections. I learned that years ago when I was hospitalized for something. You got it, it's hard but "Chin up" !!. ...crazy mike

    I caught the cruise ship virus in the middle of Pct during my last cycle. I threw-up for a day and a half straight and couldn't really eat solid for another 5 days. Lost a ton of weight and it really took the wind out of my sails. I felt like I hit rock bottom which at the point, there was only one direction to go from there! You will get your groove back.

    Animals for sure!

    Similarly, I had a shoulder injury, almost made me want to give up. 6 months later, I've pretty much rehabbed back to new. Time to get swole!

    Let us know how it goes.
