Yeah, I don't really have much productive use for a libido for the foreseeable anyway. I think my body has already accepted that and put that department on furlough.

Thank goodness, I want to suppress it because my hair is getting a little thin :( could also be the years of excessive self application of bleaches and dyes. Though also if we're doing PSAs, water intake needs to be increased to help the kidneys deal with the extra protein.

Oh don't worry on that front, I'm fine for water. I get through about 4 litres a day at the moment.

I don't think that appears to really bring much to the table apart from simple addition of protein? I think, unless you can convince me otherwise, a product that delivers a comparable amount of protein whilst also delivering carbs, fats and a mix of vitamins and minerals would surely be better?

Your body can produce all the glucose it needs. Adding carbs to liquid food just gives you an insuline spike, telling your cells to store nutrients and energy, when ideally you’d want the lipids and amino acids to remain circulating so they’re specifically available to muscle tissue when you’re actually working out. Also, you can add fat to the MyProtein whey by mixing it in whole milk. You can get the vitamins and minerals from a tablet that’s far cheaper than Huel, which doesn’t even have that many vitamins and minerals (it’s only like ⅓ of RDA per serving, and for many vitamins RDA is like a lower threshold to prevent deficiency).

Frigid was right, you two are on the take from this protein racket. I wouldn't be surprised to learn you secretly owned it.

MyProtein makes similar products to Huel, and I advise against them just as much!

Time for minoxidil also maybe?

Oh god, don't. After queuing to get into Sainsbury's last Sunday, having only gone in to get some bagels, some sandwich bits and pieces and some milk. I came out with those things, £45 worth of craft lagers with stupid names, some apricot and almond turnovers which I completely consumed on the walk home, Yuzu Cheesecake Mochi, of all fucking things, charcoal face masks and a houseplant. I cannot be trusted alone. I'm an absolute magpie.

If there's a big Sainsbury's near you, they sell it at the Sushi Gourmet counter. It's pretty good.

Tonight's craft lager du jour, however, is not that good. Avoid Disco Forklift Truck if you see it on the shelves, it's a bit to sharp and tangy an IPA for my tastes.

Sushi? No thanks. And I don't drink lagers but thanks for the quality review.

It's not actually sushi, they just sell it at the sushi counter. Because Japan.

It's rice dough wrapped around yuzu cheesecake filling. It's texturally odd, sure. But it's good. Go buy some immediately. You've only got 15 minutes until they close.

It sounds tasty. I will look in a 'big' sainsburys the next time I'm close to one (Sunday most likely). If they don't have it, I shall formally complain.

Cannabis as always. I've been getting the "cherry bomb" strain a lot lately. Which taste great and is easy on the lungs. But probably not the best night time weed but good right now so its cool

Sounds like you got a rather good doctor who took time to listen and think about what might be going on. I don't think my doctor was that caring other than to follow what must be the standard procedure i.e prescribe me anti-depressants and put me on a long list for counseling. The anti-depressants didn‘t make me feel any different and the counseling came too late as I sought help because I was on the verge of having a bit of a crisis, then when counseling came I was well going through it. I started on CBT but I thought it was the most frustrating thing ever. I had been feeling lonely and pretty unhappy for years but this was just "negative thoughts". I ended the counseling after a few weeks, changed the anti-depressant to something that might have helped a bit better but was hard to say then stopped them after a few months. Still going through shit now a few years later but just coping by myself.

I don't think the health service could help as would just mess me around with different anti-depressants or offer CBT again which I don't want.
