I have just found out that my partner of 4 years has a sex addiction. I dicovered that he is seeing other women and he admits it. I am devastated and obviously still in shock. It has been going on for years apparently. He says it is due to low self esteem (erectile dysfunction and a fear of not being inadequate). He wants to prove to himself that he can satisfy a woman but says it doesn't work even with these other casual contacts.
We have contacted a therapist and he will contact his Parkinsons doctor to change his meds which might be 'the cause' of his inability to control his impulses. He has been on far too many agonists according to his new Parkinson's doc.
I just don't know what to do or think. He does tend to lie about other things from time to time and has other OCD tendencies. I love him a lot and we have a house and a life together but I would no doubt survive if I left him. The thought of that is awful though. We have so much that is good. Tyring to weigh up the pros and cons right now.
Would be so grateful for input.
I have pretty much given up on this site. Hardly anyone posts or answers anything and the one person who does is just trying to sell herbal supplments to us.JHS
