Hi Roy, Trevor and Steve,
I am not on HT, and hope never to be, but, I have found the last year that I have been uncharacteristically, for me, emotional. No hot flushes, just weepy. The time since my op has been very difficult. I currently live with my partner who, when I found I had a problem, I said goodbye to. She has found it impossible to support me as I try to regain EF, due to the fact that early on I leaked a bit of wee in her mouth which as she said " I was not thrilled with that". Hence since then no sexual encouragement from her for me at all. Nothing. In fact one morning when I was hoping to achieve something and it took a while she said as she went downstairs to go and play on her computer "Call me if something happens and I will come back up (stairs)".
This also made me weepy. Can not think why? PMSL http://community.prostatecanceruk.org/editors/tiny_mce/plugins/emoticons/img/smiley-laughing.gif
Actually, PMS a lot of the time anyway laughing or not, but not as much as I used to. I feel quite are that with a willing and supportive partner I could be having intercourse again now and achieving orgasm. But hey we have to play the hand we are dealt.
The point of this post is that I am not sure how much the HT affects our emotions and how much the fact that we are dealing with a life threatening illness? I remember one afternoon last year listening to Chris Le Doux, This Cowboys Hat on the radio. Reduced me to tears, and then when I Googled him ,found he died of Cancer, reduced me to more tears. My current partner says don't listen to the music.

Anyway, I wish you well through it all and hope that you find a way of coping.
