Hi all, I think I’m just in a funk from Lupron side effects and just feel down. Any tips on how to keep your mood up? I tried exercising but the meds got me so exhausted I almost passed out doing a 20 min easy peloton ride. Any suggestions welcome!!

No advice but just here for solidarity. Lupron was the absolute worst. Made me feel depressed and exhausted, and made my hair fall out. But once I got off it, I went back to normal pretty quickly.

also in the Lupron funk 🙃 acupuncture has been helping me and tea. Don’t feel guilty about taking naps whenever you feel like you need them, even if it’s only two hours after you wake up (totally have done that) - your body is going through so much right now. Also, maybe something spontaneous or an activity you love? my husband surprised me w baseball tickets to cheer me up (I’m a huge fan), and even though I was exhausted, headache, and nauseas, it ended up being the BEST distraction and made me really happy. I also have been trying to put my phone in another room for pockets of the day - I love Instagram, but found it was making me feel a bit more down these days while going through all of this.

Not sure if any of that helps, but hang in there!! ❤️❤️

27M. I’ve been dealing with consistent muscle pulls and strains for the past five years from basic exercising like walking and body weight workouts that take months/years to recover when my doctor and internet say they should only take a few days/weeks to get better. I’ve gotten blood tests, diet is great, I’m 6’0 160lbs so no one is really sure what is causing this. Does anyone have any similar experiences? Only other thing that i can think of is stress but i don’t think it could be just that
