Partners of ED also suffer

Postby Lost Sheep » Wed Nov 15, 2017 12:13 am

Recent posts on DaveKell's thread, "Signing Off" suggest to me that a section of the forum devoted to providing a safe and welcoming forum for discussing the areas of relationships indirectly affected by ED and the aftermath of treating the condition.

This might be particularly for partners of members to share their thoughts, feelings and solutions.

Recovery from ED does not stop when erections are restored. Reconstituting the relationships damaged by ED is also a concern of the members.

What would you think about a section entitled, "Partners of ED also Suffer" or something of the kind?

Thanks for reading.

I wonder how many wives are like mine. 24 rears ago we married late (me 50, she 47) and had a satisfactory sex life. But when ED joined the party she patiently, but not eagerly, went through the years of fumbling around with the usual list of remedies but was not in the least disappointed when the whole enterprise came to an end. A couple of years later I got the implant, but nothing had changed for her. She was, and remains, perfectly happy without sex, as am I.

"Life is not the way it's supposed to be, it's the way it is."

Beautiful phrase, dg_moore.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

The world's greatest psychologists and therapists combined could not come up with a better recipe for mental health and happiness than the wisdom that is contained in the serenity prayer. I'm not religious and don't believe in prayer, but I know first hand how much harm we can do to ourselves and others when our actions and thoughts ignore its great truths.
