Hi folks - new member here. My brief story and gameplan.
Took Celexa for 3 years from 2001-2004 for moderate depression/anxiety. Stopped taking it due to sexual dysfunction (in a relationship at the time). My libido never came back, the relationship ended..and I turned to porn thinking it would help me recover. Long story short - eventually I realized it was causing more harm than good and I found this forum.
I'm 34 and in phenomenal health so it's definitely frustrating as I feel I'm desirable to women..too bad I don't have the desire.
I've decided to abstain from porn indefinitely (hopefully permanently) and masturbation for a period of 3 months. I don't plan on touching myself at all except in the shower or if I have an itch. I'm also planning on being more social, I'm going to try to meet women through match.com..hopefully that will help to ignite things a bit.
I made this decision on 10/29 so I'm on my 9th day. So far so good, but my libido appears to have gotten worse..it's really hit rock bottom. Does anyone have any comments on this? I hope this is normal.
Thanks for reading - I can tell you I'm very determined to stick this out.
