Exactly, most fighters have some sort of issues. Thats why they are fighters. (Not all of them but most and I bet Baroni is in that group)
Nole, the reason that the roids fucked with your emotions is honestly becaue you thought that they were supposed to. People have been told about roid rage for so long that the MILD increase in aggressiveness has been turned into this big raging barbarian kind of thing. So when people take the steroids they think they are more aggressive and thereby become more aggressive.
Here's the summary from a Different Forum:
In an article written by Jose Antonio PhD, he cites a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism (for those of you who don't know your Endocrine system is what produces hormones). This study investigated changes in mood and behavior in response to elevetions in circulating testosterone concentrations produced by a new long-lasting anabolic steroid (testosterone undecanoate).
28 men with normal nads (eugonadal) were randomized into two treatment groups. One gave the steroid up-front, followed by a washout period, followed by placebo, the second given placebo, followed by washout, followed by the steroid.
Mood was measured, self and partner-reported physical or verbal aggression, anger, hostility, irritiability, assertiveness, self-esteem, and sexual function. The injections of the steroid having increased plasma testosterone concentrations 81% by week one, and 53% by week 2 of the study.
According to the investigators:
TU treatment did not increase aggressive behavior or induce any changes in non-aggressive or sexual behavior.
Another study had male subjects receiving 200mg of testosterone ethanthate weekly by injection for 8 weeks. The control group receiving placebo injections once weekly for 4 weeks, then the TE injections for the final four weeks. Plasma testosterone levels increased 80% with testosterone administration. Guess what the scientists found?
There was no evidence to suggest an alteration in any of the mood states studied, in particular those associated with increased aggression. We conclude that supra-physiological levels of testosterone maintained for up to two months can promote some aspects of sexual arousability without stimulating sexual activity in eugonadal men with stable heterosexual relationships. Raising testosterone levels does not increase self-reported ratings of aggressive feelings.
So the bottom-line? "Roid rage" is all but a myth, with no scientific evidence to back it up. The most it can be chalked up to is biochemical individuality...meaning that your body might not respond the same as someone else's. But the same is true for why creatine might make you sick and for 95% of the population it just doesn't. Or how it might negatively affect one person's kidneys, but there's no scientific evidence to say that across-the-board, it damages kidneys.
Don't believe me? Read the studies for yourself:
