Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
My wife left me about 1 1/2 years ago, but I`m not overly distraught about this. I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes and have found this could affect errections. I`ve been unemployed for over a year and worry about paying the rent and utilities, but this is my biggest concern. For approx. 1 year I`ve had a problem with getting and sustaining an erection. I`m confused as to what may be causing this problem. I`m only 58 years old and have lost all emotions for sex.
It sounds like you have may a small bout of depression or low testosterone. I would see a primary care doctor to get the ball rolling. In either case, excellent treatment options are available.
