Depressed

Postby jamesedwards » Sat Dec 16, 2017 12:25 am

I've been dealing with ED for a very long time since my 20's. I'm now 40 and still dealing with it. I've always been depressed about it back then, but the thing that I'm more bothered about the most now is the fact that I can't have a wife and family due to my ED. I'm not able to keep a lady long enough because of my problem. I've not been able to find someone who understands my problem and willing to work it out with me. Of course I don't expect a woman to stick around and deal with my issue. But it's just depressing because I've always wanted to meet someone and be with them for a long time and start a family with kids.

This ED issue has layers and layers of depression. I just wanted to talk to someone because I'm really in bad shape right now. But I'm not giving up, reading these forums over the past few months has really helped me not go over that edge.

Dear James,

I really feel for you and know exactly what you are talking about.
Most of us on this forum have probably experienced depression and anxiety of different degrees because of ED.
What solutions have you tried to cure your ED?
If you have tried all and none of them worked, have you thought about getting a penile implant?

I am really glad you two are talking. Helping others is a really good way to help yourselves while you work out your problems. :)

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this depression stage. I bet some folks on here has or is dealing with even deeper depression issues than me. I'm curious how are you guys making it day by day?

As far as solutions I've tried, I've tried the usual (pills, therapy, vitamins) and probably other things I'm missing, but these are just the main things that everyone with ED issues has tried. Currently I'm looking into Trimix, but I'm just reading up on it now and if I happen to come across a lady that I'm getting to know then I might look further into the Trimix.

But right now I've about given up on finding someone only because I'm scared of the same routine repeating itself. Meet someone, fail, then lose someone. It's been a repeating factor.

But as of now, I'm just trying to deal with my depression. So being at work a lot helps and visiting this forum also helps a lot. But often times I think about all the missed opportunities of a potential partner I've missed out on due to my ED. That's what's the toughest to clear from my mind.

James;
If sex is that important to you, why not explore your options now so that WHEN you find a mate that will be one less thing to worry about. It MAY take a while to find an acceptable solution due to doctor wait times. :)
