    Does anyone know how to deal with flatline depression and performance anxiety? I’m about 4-5 days into reboot and I sometimes worry that I may not go back to normal. I’m trying to remain optimistic because I still get erections, but they’re about 70-80% full.

    Any advice helps. Thanks I’m advance.

    You are only 5 days in? The advice is to be patient. I am over 5 months in and I see improvement but I am not complete healed...so...is a long trip.

    Can you get an erection without manual stimulation?

    Yes. I’m now 8 days in and I get morning wood. When lying down, I can get erect just from fantasizing.

    Stay away from porn and masturbation .... and orgasm! If you want to heal take months... I don't know how many, don't count them. If you can get an erection without manual stimulation it's a good sign there are chances of healing.

    I find my flatline gets worse every time I relapse and binge. Sometimes even after sex I go into a mini flatline.

    I can still get it up, but only like 80%. Maybe i should try hard mode?

    For how long does this phenomenon last before you start feeling better again?

  13. It's normal. In men who aren't PIED is similar.

    They’re semi. I’d say about 80%. Since then I’ve relapsed. For a day or two after, I’ll get morning wood. But after that, hit flatline.
