I'm a 51(nearly 52) guy with erectile disfunction. I have been single pretty much all my life. I always thought i would meet someone and have children and now i realise that this will not happen and i'm beginning to struggle find a purpose for living. As a child i was abused by a neihbour and have struggled for self esteem all my life. Although i get on well with others and try to be kind and considerate i am at the stage where i don't think i can go on without a reason and i'm not getting any enjoyment from life. I know there are many people out there who are in far worse situations than me and i should'nt be complaining but i am so lonely and see no light at the end of the tunnel. I also have no cartilage in both knees and every step i take is painfull so i find that although i have learned to put up with the pain i spend nearly all my time outside of work staying at home. I guess having a sexual problem has made me think i will always be alone and i find that thought very depressing. Also i'm having a hard time posting this. Just my luck i guess.
