I've been running in circles for the last few months and was wondering you guys have any ideas where to find mental support other then the forums. I think I need to talk with someone or something. It's hard to keep everything inside so sometimes I try to talk about with close friends or family but they can't understand what I'm going through.. It's been a constant fight with various doctors over the last year and a half just to have them running tests, or to get PDE5. I think it's because of my young age (27) they just don't want to believe my ED is nothing else then psychological. I had finally found a good urologist and was supposed to get the Doppler but he just cancelled my appointment for the 3rd time in over 4 months. I was crushed .
I don't know if I should go see a psychologist. I've seen a sexologist last year when I thought my ED was mental but it didn't make me feel better, and it's not cheap. she just tried to find BS reasons for my ED, it never made much sense IMO. That's why I have doubts going back to seeing a psy. . But it's getting really tough keeping my head up and being strong. Do you think I should find find a new one?
I was also wondering lately if I'll ever be able to regain the self-esteem and confidence with women I had before all this. What are your experiences? Do you feel you have regain your confidence after getting the right treatment (implant etc.)?
PS: My health care system is probably one the the shittiest in the world. We are the highest tax payers in North-America and should in theory have free health care but it's so bad and bureaucratique that most have to resolve to find a private practitioner and pay out of pocket. So you end up paying twice for the same service. (feels good releasing some steam!)
What are your fears? Ideas? Hints? to coping with ED. What helps you with your mental game? How are relationships affected?

I’d suggest you find a new uro who is willing to fully test you. Do you still ever wake up with morning wood?
