Memory Hack

With that out of the way, let's Memory Hack Review get down to business. Why get hormones? Why would somebody decide to start hormone replacement therapy? This is an intricate matter. It all starts with dysphoria. Dysphoria is difficult to describe. Most trans people would describe it as the worst thing they've ever felt. There's a reason it combines dys, from the Greek for pain or difficulty, and phore, meaning bearer of. It's the bearer of pain and difficulty.I was also in the middle of trying to heal from a pretty bad foot injury at that time and was fairly immobile except for going to and from work. So, I was gaining weight again, my social circle was shrinking, my partner was very sick and almost unrecognizable, things were not going too well at work, and I had a shattered joint capsule and broken toe in my foot. All of this, in combination, led me to drink even more alcohol to manage the stress and pain.I decided to get an annual physical the following spring, and it was not good news. My results implied that I was a walking time bomb for a stroke or heart attack. I was overweight, had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and my CRP level was quite high.
