Just out of curiosity. Something I overheard at the mall today
yep, theres a lot of material on it on the net. it has to be pretty bad though, just your regular bad day won't really do it.
Hurt?, it can destroy it. Depression left unchecked can destroy you.
huh. go figure. Okay, thanks guys
Depression hurts every aspect of your life. It pretty much takes away any want/need to do anything. Sex is no exception.
True depression, as opposed to the faddish ailment so many seem to have, is a brain chemistry problem. So that's where the sex drive is affected.
its true i went through it.
I've struggled with depression for a good half of my life, started as early as junior high, nothing i ever did seemed good enough to my parents, with academics, sports, etc. I always had girlfriends, but they never seemed to last more than a few months. Eventually I stopped caring about everything, and grew very conscious about myself and everything I did. I always analyzed every action that I made and it became hard to function, and greatly impacts your relationship with yourself, friends, familiy, and partner. It definately effects your sex drive, theres nothing it doesn't effect. It makes everything numb, good or bad, you don't feel much of anything. In fact I remember feeling almost glad I could cry, when my dad died; the first time i really cried in about 4 years. I guess I was glad just to know I could still feel something.
Anyway, off track a bit, but yes it effects everything, and its up to the person that has it to #1 seek help, #2 work out, #3 eat healthy, doing these very simple yet obvious things will help you feel better naturally. Ultimately getting you to a point where finding things to make you happy on your own won't seem as challenging. I hope this helps.
^ that and a person would have to want to get better.
Depression is from a lack of Serotonin, Dopamine, or Norepinephrine and it's a guessing game to treat. If someone lacks any of those then their brain activity tends to decrease and their sex drive often goes with it. However there are some where durring sex is the only time they can feel any emotions so they continue to do that. Sadly nobody for sure 100% knows what goes on and why these things happen, it's theories that have been tested and are found to be reliable.
Yes it totally can hurt your sex drive.
The only thing that hurt my sex drive more was anti depressants. Now that was a party!
Yes depression can make a big dent in your life from sex to living. I have been depressed and I have been on and still are on anti-depressent and for the last year..
It did effect my well being and sex drive and I also became very unwell last year because of the stress and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis .
alot to cope with but Mr Bunny is my rock
Very true. I first became really depressed because of the lack of intimacy & sex.
I have been taking an antidepressant which has made a world of difference, although now I don't much care about anything.
Ive been depressed for so long I forgot what its like to not be depressed. Ive been on so much meds.....which didnt help me...the dr. wont put me on something new..its always the same stuff that doesnt work.
It def affects your sex drive.....and all aspects of your life.
YES YES YES
meds have affected both me & my man (in the past) and even now if im feeling blah or having an extremely bad few days, my sex drive will disappear (just went 2 weeks without sex neither of us really were in the mood)
Yes it can. Depression affects your whole life. I know. I'm living with it. Recently I've lost my parents, siblings, an in-law, my wife and kids. I try to keep busy with my business, because inactivity of any sort will be a dark time. When He decides the time is right I will see them all again in Heaven................
Depression, depending on the degree, can hurt every aspect of a peron's life.
