New here, long time sufferer
« on: November 12, 2017, 05:53:28 PM »
Hi all,

I am in my late 20's and I've been suffering from this my entire life, at least as long as I can remember.  This has been incredibly enlightening and encouraging for me to confirm that the experiences I have had have not just "all been in my head".  In fact, I didn't even realize that my symptoms came from POIS until I read about them in this forum.  I had discovered that mb and O did cause depression and other related issues and I was even pretty certain it caused my shoulder and my back pain but until you see it all together like this you really have no idea...  I figured it was a spiritual and psychological issue that having an o without marriage and commitment would make one depressed.  Who knew how many chemicals we need running in the body just to make us feel well and normal, it really is a wonder of nature! 

I remember being in middle school and wanting to kill myself, which I'm sure isn't out of the ordinary for this.  I was really out of it for most of my youth, it was like a giant daze for me. 

I am in my late 20's now and been pretty celibate (or as much as I can) for about 8 years.  Several years ago, lead by my heart, I felt to give up women and dating entirely!  I found such peace and inner-fulfillment, even when I think about relationships I usually will get a pain in my heart and a type of brain-fog or stickiness in my mind.

I've started to take niacin, which I believe I must have been deficient in and find relief with it in the short term but usually have to keep reapplying it for several days as I begin to get headaches and brain fog again. 

Nice to meet you all,
DS

Do you mean that you take Niacin even when you are abstain from Orgasm?
POIS sufferer for over 3 decades. Has progressively gotten worse over the years and I became completely disabled around 2011. My case of POIS is very severe.

Yes, but just because I believe I am deficient.  My body seems a little bit more able to handle chilly temperatures, my joints seem to move smoother and it seems to help me develop an appetite.   I don't really like porn or mb and I don't have any relationships nor believe in premarital sex, so I tried it a few times if it worked but I didn't think it would be worth watching porn and mbing and getting in a bad habit of doing so.
