Thank you for those responses.
I am convinced that early abuse of me had a strongly negative affect on my hormones, etc.
I am getting a shot of testosterone (testosterone cypionate) once per month. It seems somewhat short of satisfactory. For the week after the shot I go through puberty again (this is an exaggeration but not much). Then by the time of the next shot I've returned to senility (again I'm exaggerating).
But I've noticed a positive and beneficial effect. Before the shots, my skin was developing little skin wrinkles as my body used it's own muscle mass. Now that has stopped and the muscle mass has apprently stopped decreasting.
I continue with the thyroid pills everyday (levothyroxine). It is slow and laborious but I think it is turning the situation around.
I never did have a lot of body hair except scalp hair. My arms have less than when I was in high school.
