Post young men and prostatitis
I think it's useful to consider the fact that most of us are young. We are men and have suffered from prostatitis.
Young men aren't supposed to suffer from illness. We are going to be distressed about suffering from any serious illness, we're young that's not right! Now consider that it's an illness that affects our ability to have sex. It is a massive blow to our confidence. Other guys are carefree, having great sex with girls. We might be impotent at least partially.
This situation is going to push a massive amount of stress onto us.
It's doubly worse if you've got a new girlfriend...
Stress, I'm certain is a major factor in prostatitis. So we have to learn to manage stress. It may be that sex has to take a back seat. That girlfriend may not be so important after all....
One thing is certain, as we become older men we are going at some point to start getting ill, in all kinds of ways. That sounds depressing and it is a sad fact. However, we need to find ways of accepting illness and living with it, perhaps changing the way we understand age, illness and our bodies. That way an illness may be reduced in its emotional impact and maybe even it's physical symptoms.
