Hi Betty, first of all I want to say thank you for your work on this site here. It have been interesting coming in here and read about several topics around female masturbation and sex life.
But I was wondering with many people struggling some sort of mental illness like depression and loneliness (the list go on). And how these things do effect sex life and masturbation. It's just a topic I haven't read so much about.
I personally don't use any anti-depresant medicines, but these feelings and moods can really have bad effect on my life (including my masturbation obviously).
I just wonder if you (or maybe any of the readers?) happens to have any good advice how to deal with wanting to have healthy happy sex life with oneself, but feeling like being hindered by feeling so low you almost lose your will to live.
I know you are not a therapist (I personally have one, I am doing what I can there on my other topics of my life). I just wonder what is your take on this tied with sexual health?
Thanks for reading my letter.
From time to time everyone deals with all of those things emotionally. Whenever I feel depressed I'd simply go to my health club and workout. A friend of mine would have depressions where she couldn't get out of a chair. We all must find natural ways to deal with this.
Taking an anti-depressant will only end you ability to have an orgasm and are to be avoided except in extreme cases. Having an orgasm will always improve my mood. Meditation also works. Taking a nap has helped. Fixing a drink at 4 in the afternoon is nice. Calling a friend.
We all find different ways to cope with the blues. I repeat, having an orgasm is always a good antidote to depression.
