    So 4 months ago I decided to do jelqing because I was a bit insecure about my size. I did it for about 2 weeks and then stopped because I noticed major sensitivity loss and morning erections were mild and I couldn't get fully hard or stay hard since then. At first I thought that it would just go away with time and masturbated much less but it didn't and now it has been 4 months already. I've been to a doctor, he told me that everything was fine and it's just a psychological problem but I don't think so because I know my body and I know that something is wrong. I'm losing all hope and feeling very depressed and there is not a day without me thinking of suicide. It just ruined my life. Did anyone have a similar problem? Would abstaining from masturbation help with this?

  2. Hello,

    I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling. Rebooting has its ups and downs, just like life. We see many people experiencing both the ups and downs during the reboot, and though it may be hard to see now, these feelings you are having won’t last forever. It will get better with time, if you are patient and wait.

    In the meantime, please seek professional help. I know the idea of calling a helpline might terrify you, but in times of crisis, we often need someone their to put our lives in perspective. So please contact someone who can help and don’t hang up on them. The International Association for Suicide Prevention maintains a list of suicide prevention hotlines for countries all over the world. Also, if you don’t feel up to actually talking to someone on the phone, StopSuicide maintains a list of online instant messaging and chat suicide prevention resources.

    You are not alone in this. There are ways to treat depression. Please contact people that can help you. Being depressed often makes it feel like you don’t have any more options. But that is a lie. That is just the depression talking. These feelings you have won’t last forever. We are in this with you, and we will all be cheering for you to get through this!
