kminny, I can’t say much about his midlife crisis since ED didn’t cause it. I am almost fully recovered from ED (caused by changes in high blood pressure medications) so I have some thoughts I can share.

When I had ED, I felt I had a “rest of my life” crisis instead of midlife crisis on my hands. (One change in BP medications even prevented Cialis (an anti-ED med) from working! :eek: ) Yes, I felt sorry for myself but I also felt very lucky that my wife responded very favorably (just like you did). I very quickly realized that if anything happened to take her from me, few women would envision me as a suitable partner. After that realization, all her needs were satisfied before mine. Now that things are nearly normal, we are both much happier.

Quote from kminny:
I fell as if he is not interested in me sexually any more - that it all about him now and his satisfaction...with no regard for mine.
I can’t understand his lack of appreciation for you. Doesn’t he realize the precarious position he is in? If he loses you, to whom could he turn?

It sounds like you have done all you can. You should be proud of what you have done. Your husband needs a reality check and he better start treating you much better very quickly.

A midlife crisis compounded with ED sounds like a formidable problem that should be addressed immediately. He should see his doctor right away concerning ED. It could possibly be caused by changes in his medications or his medical condition. Maybe curing or treating his ED problem will help your relationship. If not, he may need to see a counselor. Unfortunately, most men resist seeing a counselor.

Good luck!
We were in the same boat. I was having difficulties with ED (didn' know I had it )my wife thought something was wrong with her not arousing me. I knew something wasn't right and my ego and denial were heavly inplay. We finnaly talked about it and did some research and it is very common for men over 40. I'am also a diabetic (20yrs)and it's more the norm than the exception . Went to the DR gave me some Viagra and Cialis to try and all is well. Now when thing don't go as smooth as they used to we laugh it off and try again. The nurse at the dr's office told me I was one of the smart ones because most suffer in silence. Talk about it do some research and handle the ego with care
