My husband is a type 1 diabetic. The doctor actually discovered it because I made him go to the doctor about the ED. They ran a battery of tests and found that he was diabetic. This was almost four years ago. Since the diagnosis we do not have sex more than once or twice a year. The last time we tried, I think, with Viagra he just about passed out. I guess the medications and his other medical issues just did not work well together.
It is extremely upsetting to me. He is only 38 and I'm 39. This shouldn't be happening to a young person. We have totally lost all physical connection. It is also effecting me emotionally too. I suffer from depression. I had to be put on an additional medication which was partly necessary because I feel so rejected by my husband. Even if he can't get an erection, he could at least please me and he doesn't even try that.
How do I cope with this?
