Anxiety when in comfortable situations
« on: February 10, 2013, 11:03:37 PM »
After I ejaculate, and enter POIS-mode.

Whenever I'm in most social situations, that I should be very comfortable with, like talking to a girl, I become very aggravated because I can't think of anything to say. And because of that, I get huge anxiety. My brain starts to HURT, and my abdomen has slight pressure... almost like it's trying to rip me open.

Then I'm forced to sleep it off or it doesn't go away.

In these moments, I really hate life.

Damn it, the more I read this forum, the more it's like I discover agonized echoes of my own self...

I'm exactly like you. Especially 1-2 days after an O, I get a nasty case of sociophobia / agoraphobia, loss of words, tendency for isolation and withdrawal + a multiplied feeling of embarassment during unconfortable situations.

It has ruined a great part my social life  and has been a huge source of misunderstandings.. plus a relationship killer.

The only thing I can advise you is to have patience and wait to see what results the funded NORD research will produce. Sometimes it's better to suffer the craving that comes with some additional abstinence than to undergo all the physical and mental impairment that POIS brings.
