I’m on a downer right now.
At the end of last week my sleep was almost back to normal, my erections were constant, solid and had been for a while, and then to top things off, my relaxed size went back to normal.
On Saturday morning, I felt convinced this was all over. I realised I felt completely normal and had done for a few days.
By Saturday evening, I’d started getting some little twinges in my groin. And now my sleep is poor again. Yesterday I had around an hour of feeling lightheaded and detachment from the world. I’m aware of a lack of libido and response to it now too. I know these symptoms are so mild as to be almost non existant for some people here. I hope you’re feeling ok.
Through this whole period, I’ve had ups and downs and ultimately I’m in a better position than a month ago. It’s disappointing and saddening to have had things slip back from a positive state but I think that my condition will improve again. If it can so quickly go from essentially fully recovered to this, I have no doubt that the changes we are all dealing with are temporary. If you are concerned that you have irreparably changed things, look to the many stories of temporary but complete recovery that you can find here.
Once we have funded more studies and found out more detail of the mechanism at work I am certain that treatment will lead to recoveries that will be both quick and complete.
