I'm a pediatric dentist which means my job is to convince little kids it's a good idea to let me stick a needle in their mouth, put a rubber dam on their tooth and stick sharp/loud instruments in their mouth. Needless to say this requires A LOT of patience in addition to expert knowledge of both reading kids (I can size a kid's behavior up in 5 seconds as they walk through the waiting room before they even open their mouths) and knowing how to manipulate them. I have always been very good at this part of my job but I seem to be getting less....lets say tolerant. Now I assumed I'm going just going through what many in my position go through - getting older, showing early signs of burnout and just less whiling to deal with unnecessary bullshit. Now I'm wondering if TRT has anything to do with it? I'd guess my entire pediatric dental career I had low T - now on TRT I feel MUCH more "alpha male" and to be honest I'm just less interested in dealing with little kid crap. My patience is way down at both work and with my own kids. Many times I just want what I want the way I want it NOW! My impatience at work is leading to a constant feeling of dissatisfaction and to be honest most days I have ZERO interest in dealing with children - this is new. Up until a few months ago I really liked what I do. Unfortunately I've trained too long, spent too much money training and have too much at stake to do anything else. Maybe this is just a mid-life crisis but does anyone know of any literature looking at the effects of TRT/testosterone on a male's ability to relate to children? To be honest some days I just want to kick the little fuckers after I chastise mom for being a shitty parent....most of the time I just stare at mom's tits though...lol.
