@PiedoDerPSSD you may wish to join a forum specializing in PSSD, such as pssdforum.org, to discuss those topics.

 

As this is a site for a general audience, we're not keen about graphic descriptions of sex or sex organs here.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

My opinion is that there is no such thing as recovery, only improvement to some point that people can somehow 'accept' what has happened and claimed to be 'recovered'.

...

I quit drugs 2,5 years ago and there have not been any changes in symptomps since then. So why should I think that all of the sudden a miracle will happen and my body/brain will start to healing since it has not for 2,5 years already?

 

Can someone please help me understand?

 

 

I can't change your opinion.

But I can attest, I went from total erectile dysfunction to "normal" (what I was educated 15 years ago, is/was average sexual performance. Fluid amount, longevity and sensitivity.) 

 

Please consider reading my story and intro... I spent at least 2 years with no perceivable improvement.

 

I'm not very good at explaining some things. I will mention "The Bell Curve" of recovery.
Everyone is somewhere on the curve.

 

Don't despair, that is not healthy. I think things will change with time.

Prescribed Various SSRI's, Benzodiazepines and Risperidone in 2009 for Anxiety.

Tapered off SSRI's within one year. Abrupt ending with Risperidone.

Recovered from medication side effects!

Sorry to say, 6 months is not a long time. 2 years or 3 years... Fast or slow.

Everyone is different.

Full recovery? 100% sexuality back? What symptoms did you have and how long it took you to recover?

Yes.

 

Probably the same as many others. You can look at my intro thread for info. I tapered Lexapro over 15 months - was a gradual return to equilibrium from there.
