Hi bryan, how long you've been on ADs? Have you recovered from soft glans and sexual numbness ?

Thanks

Hey guys!

 

Things, again, were going great for a while. Then I had a very very very stressful month and things have been a bit numb again. Performance is still great, but the actual beginning and end feeling aren't so great. Hoping it swings (no pun intended) back around again soon.

Hey brian,

How long you've been taking Ads?

Have you ever experienced soft gland syndrome?

How are you feeling now regarding arousal and pleasure?

 

Thank you

1. That information is in my signature as well as well documented across my posts.

2. I haven't

3. You can read this entire thread and I think that will answer your questions.

 

Good luck to you, I am sorry to hear you are suffering.

Thank you!

 

 

 

And just like that things feel normal again, thank goodness. I was feeling hopeless there for a week or two. I feel connected, have a sex drive, and perform well.

I'm curious as to your anhedonia.

 

I'm eight months med free.

 

I was only on 3 mg of risperdal for about four months and anhedonia set in while I was taking it. It's the main reason I went off the drug as I could not stand not being able to feel anything.

 

I understand the meds you were on are different and you were on them for a greater length of time....but could you maybe explain the process/progress of your anhedonia?

 

This is the worst feeling in the world, I feel like a soul-less shell of a human.

 

My libido is low too, but I imagine that has a lot to do with a lack of emotions.

I'm on your coat tails here Under Pressure,

 

I second the motion Branyan.

 

Can you expand on the anhedonia side of things? what was the dissipation like? did you get windows or was it all of a sudden etc, etc, etc...were you soulless for a long stretch...?

 

Cheers

hey bryan,

 

what you mean by being numb? Is it like having your genitals cold and not enough bloodflow in there?

 

Did that reverse for you?

 

Thank you

Things were going pretty great in the month of May/June. Possibly the best in the 7 years since PSSD began. It was the most effortless erections, orgasms, etc. Now after a couple of really stressful months it's kind of bad again. So heres to hoping that changes again soon.

Now I can happily say that after a week of traveling with my partner things are going great again. Everything feels right again, and is performing like I expect it to.

Are you performing like you want to ? Are you 100 percent healed when it comes to sexuality ?

also have you ever experienced soft glans syndrome ? Do you know anything that could help with this type of pssd ?

thank you

Hi Bobo. I am not 100% healed. I have explained that many many times in this post. I have also answered your second question many many times. I am sorry to be blunt, but I am a bit tired of repeating myself in that regard. As I have said before, and if you take the time to read my posts, even 7 years out things are still fluctuating. I am sorry you are suffering, and i truly wish you the best.

Hey guys! Brunyan here from the old PP forums. I haven't written in any SSRI or related forum in almost 2 years now. The reason being? Things for the most part have been pretty damn great. My actual life is great. I have a great career started. I am finally independent and financially stable. I've had a couple of short relationships in between now and when Paxil Progress ended. During that sexual relationship I almost NEVER had one problem. Not only that, things were pretty freaking great in that department. I never had any problems getting it up, and sex was frequent and very good.

 

Now there is still some of the genital numbness, and spotty libido, but was scarcely a worry.

 

So. fast forward. We broke up. Not the right time in our lives, etc etc blah blah.

 

 

Now the libido and functioning goes right back down to nothing good. This has been the pattern in the post SSRI/PSSD world for almost 5-6 years now. In the relationship things work great. Outside of that relationship, even when by myself things just dont feel very good.

 

I realize how lucky I am. I'm grateful to have what I have. I'm so lucky. I'm not even really complaining. I just kind of needed to vent because its kind of scary. And in the past the one habit I've made is obsessively trying to hook up with girls or look at porn to keep testing if things are working. And I want to be a lone for a while and do some more soul searching. 

 

The last girl i was with I was very upfront about the PSSD stuff, and we took our time to get to sex and that made all the difference. I cannot discount the emotional and psychological part of it. It's almost as if the PSSD has made those components so strong that I am now 'demi-sexual". 

 

If you look that up it basically means you can't be aroused without an emotional connection..

 

I've got a lot of work to do in therapy to deal with this. I need to listen to my rational mind and not the fearful part. I can do this.

 

I'm of course open to any and all questions as I know that my story has been used as a success story for many people fearful of PSSD around the internet. 

 

Hey Brunyan! Thanks for sharing your experiences. How are things going?

Do you still experience soft glans or penile atrophy?

 

Best greets
