Hi I'm 39 (next week) married 19 years at the end of September and my partner (he's 47) and I have suffered from ED for 12 years. I say the two of us have suffered as I have given everything I've got to trying to maintain a sex life. We've tried Viagra and just about everything else but nothing works. I now go to bed much later just so he'll be asleep when I do go. Don't get me wrong but it's gotten to the stage where I don't want to try as I don't like the battery operated alternatives, I end up more sexually frustrated than when we started. I love my husband and maybe it's because it's close to my birthday and anniversary that I'm thinking of this. I seem to be saying to myself every birthday that I'll give it another year and see how things go, but yet again, another birthday is rolling around and I can't believe that it is now 12 years that I'm "giving it another year". I think at this stage I either stay with my husband and accept that I'm never going to have full intercourse again, or we call it a day. I just don't know what to do. Any thoughts are very welcome.

Why do they ask us to ask God in the morning before we start our day to be "divorced" from self-pity, dishonesty, and self-seeking motives? Well for one, it then tells us it will guarantee assurance in our decision making. I am assured a being able to manage "mental faculties" if they are not hindered by pity for myself, a need to lie, and only seeking my own self-interest. Basically it is...
