hi all, my first post. i recently split up from my girlfriend of 5+ years. I took the breakup alot worse than i thought. It was my first relationship, my first love, lost my virginity to this girl etc etc. Im 23 years old so ive been in along term relationship since a child. After about 2 weeks into the breakup i hit depression which last luckily for about 2 weeks and was under alot of emotional stress. I have always fancied women and have had an extremely high sex drive as far as i can remember. Becoz i was under so much stress and could not control my thoughts (a symptom of depression) i didnt release that such emotional stress can crush your libido. Due to the lack of thought control I stupidy tried to convince myself that becoz my sex drive had gone then it must mean that i dont like women anymore which is completly stupid and i feel liek such an idiot, this wasnt helped by the fact that i was in such a state. Now i seem to have made myself nervous infront of every man. LOL. I know this sounds stupid. Ive done alot of research into emotional stress and it is natural for you to lose ur sex drive after such a traumatic event. What the hell have i done to myself. Any one got any advice? Ive been told so far to just dismiss my stupid thoughts and wait for my libido to come back.
