Overall, since avoiding pornography and masturbation, I've developed a real longing for companionship and intimacy which I'm happy about. I'm taking real notice of girls around me and attempting to initiate something but there's an underlying caution and despair that the reality is I have no sexual ability to fulfil their needs or my own.
At times, I feel as though I want sex but my body doesn't respond with sexual arousal or spontaneous erection - just anxiety and a feeling around my prostate to want to ejaculate.
I've put myself through a lot of anxiety and suppressed sexual urges quite harshly in view of my pornography usage. After experiencing this anxiety, I began to feel very drained but continued pornography use - at times really depleting my body of energy. I couldn't understand why I kept going back for me no matter how much mentally I'd hate myself - but the articles on dopamine clarify what was going on?
I'd begun to read a lot all over the net about how excessive sexual activity can upset neuro-chemicals and exhaust the adrenal glands and as I keep reading I feel very much afraid that I've pushed myself to a limit my body can't handle. Is this legitimate?
Is it advised to report these things to a medical professional and order some tests to qualify this research - such as hormone levels or neuro chemical imbalances? Can these things be tested? Is it recommended that adequate nutrition and supplementation be incorporated to bring the body's neuro chemicals back in balance while on the 90 day reboot?
Most doctor's would think I'm nuts for wanting to know what my hormone's or neuro-chemicals are up to being 27 but given I've subjected my body to such mistreatment - the research explains a lot about why I feel the way I do and have a keen curiosity to know whether this can be revealed to me.
Please share any experiences or practical advice on improving health and energy aside from abstinence.
