Hello Henry
Sorry you not feeling good. ED is a killer for some of us. Not just a physical affliction but deeply mental for some of us also. I have good days and bad as you know. And so do you. It doesn't bother some men and I guess we are all different and different ages and have different relationships with our partners.
All I really want to say is that I think you should try anti depressants and see if you can feel better. It's a vicious circle as if you get really down , even fully functioning men can get ED. So many things create an erection and if your mood is low it can be a killer.
For what it's worth I have had mental illness for 24 years and have pretty much been on everything at one point or another. And guess what ? Up until this bloody cancer I could get a hard-on even if the wind just changed direction. So they didn't affect me that way.
I just want you to be well and happier. Give them a try maybe.

If life gives you lemons , then make lemonade
Thanked 1 time

Not used anti depressants so cannot help there.

I have said many times you do not need an erection for vaginal intercourse, we use a method simalar to the following, with great results.
