TRT or HGH, are these right for me?

Patient : Greetings, I just recently turned 36, and in the last year or so I've noticed some significant changes. I'm a combat veteran and avid weight lifter, but all that intensity and vigor has just seemed to dropped off severely in the last year. I have no desire to lift weights, no sex drive... in fact I can't remember my last erection. This is really bothering me and obviously depressing, so I naturally looked towards popular methods of reversing this, but I'm very cautious of medications and or supplements. However, I've been looking at both HGH and TRT and I just don't understand the downsides of each, nor the benefits.... well, I guess the benefits are obvious. But with the lack of sex drive, I'm just wondering what you as professions have to say about the matter. Should I try one of these options? And if so, which treatment would be best suited with the least amount of downsides (Are these safe treatments?). I'm getting pretty desperate to rekindle my former self, so any response would be most appreciated.
Symptoms:  Severe lack of motivation and sex drive.
