FC: Happy Mothers Day! | The one Year Steroids Trial | by Jake Lewis
1: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month One | day 1, | Hey, today is the day that I will start my one year trial of anabolic steroids! Since I'm on J.V football and I need to get stronger and faster to make varsity quarterback. But for some reason i can't seem to get stronger. So I have made the decision to use steroids! I'm about to take my first injection. I will write back every month and give you some feed back. Oh and I forgot to mention my names Jake Lewis.
2: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month Two | Day 43, | I'm back and stronger than ever! I'm taking an injection once a week. Since then Ive taken 6 doses and my bench press has gone from 107 pounds to 113! So far I'm really starting to like steroids and Coach Spencer is starting to notice the improvement. Which means I have a shot at Varsity! I'm still doing one dose a week. I feel great and stronger than expected for it only being a month. Before i started the trial I could only throw the rock about 40-45 yards, and now it's close to 41-45 yards! As far as I know I love em'
3: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month three | Day 76, | Hello again. As you can see it's month three. (oh cool i rhymed) I still really like steroids but i have noticed some pimples. But I don't know whether thats just natural or if it is like a side effect from steroids. I'm hoping it's just a regular teenage thing (cross your fingers). But other than that, they have changed my life fr the better. I hope to continue for the whole year. I will still write every month for a year. Later,
4: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month four | Day 103 | As you can see I'm back again. I still take one dose a week every week. The acne has gone up a ton. But, so has my squat lift! It went from 155 to 172! Oh and also coach is letting me practice with the varsity squad on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! It's like a dream come true. I noticed some hair loss. I don't know if it's from stress, working out, or part of the downside of using steroids. I think it might be making me a little edgy, but let's hope for the best.
5: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month five | Day 138 | OK I'm a little worried acne and going bald because it's still increasing! I have also decided that I'm going to start to take 2 doses a week because I really like the way it's turned out so far. My bench press has gone from 107 to 126! I can't believe it. And it's only been five months! I have to admit at first I thought it wasn't going to work, but with these results...They're pretty legit
6: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month six | Day 169, | These months have gone by so fast! I'm already half way through the trial! But i have bad news... So I went to my monthly check up at the Dr. yesterday and he said that the acne and hair loss are part of the steroids but thats only half of it. The doctor also thinks that I'm a little bit addicted! So now I have to attend therapy once a week! My first session is in 2 weeks, so I will write back A.S.AP
7: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month Seven | Day 193, | O.K so I have gone to therapy twice so far and it's not as bad as I thought. My nurse Mrs, James is pretty cool because she actually understands why I take it and you'll never guess.... She used to take steroids too! And while I'm there all we really do is talk about the ways to get off of steroids. So I have decided that I will start to only take 1 dose a week. And I am trying to find an organization that will let me go and visit students that have the peer pressure to take steroids!
8: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month Eight | Day 219, | Good news... I found an organization, it's called ATHENA. It will let me go and visit young middle school and high school students, I will go once a month to different middle schools and high schools and teach the kids that go there ( mostly the athletes) and teach them why they shouldn't take them such as the side effects. My last therapy session is next week! And I'm only taking one injection every 2 weeks! The acne is clearing out. So far steroids have made me a better person by making me a volentier
9: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month Nine | Day 247 | Yesterday was the first time going to the middle school. I went to Savannah middle school. They are a little school so it wasn't that bad for the first time visiting. I just told the students how to resist the peer pressure. Also I told them the risk of why not to take them. Next month I will be visiting a high school... A BIG one! I still only take one dose every two weeks. Hopefully If I'm on the schedule, I will be steroid free by the end of next month! I feel lucky knowing that steroids could have severely harmed me because I never even knew there were any side effects! So I consider myself... lucky.
10: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month Ten | Day 271 | I go to the high school in a couple of days. But somehow coach Spencer found out about my steroid usage! He kicked me off the team for almost half the season! I'm so mad at myself, I can't even describe it! I don't even know how he found out, I haven't even told anyone! The only reason I took steroids is to make varsity football, and now I'm not even on the team anymore! Steroids were a complete waste of time. I don't know why I ever wasted the time and money just to find out I got kicked off the team! I'm so mad at myself I can hardly look at myself!
11: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month eleven | Day 339, | It is almost the last month of my trial! Big news... My birthday is today! I turned 17! But I'm still kicked off the team:( I get to come back on the team in 2 weeks. But till then I'm just there sitting in the stands hoping I was out there. Coach said that I will have to earn back playing on the varsity squad. If I ever get caught using steroids again I will never be able to play football ever again on the high school team! So before I go I must say that I will never use steroids ever again!
12: Happy Mothers Day! | With Love, ___________ | Month 12 | Day 365, | The end has come. My trial is over. Steroids have no had good effect on my life at all! They completely ruined it! I'm back on the team but I'm back up, on the J.v team. He said I probably won't start the rest of the season. So I will never ever take the dumb mistake of taking steroids ever again! Also I must admit they make you in insane shape! But other than that they were a disaster for me. They may work perfectly for you but for me... Not so much. So goodbye.
