OK--Someone reach through this computer screen and slap me. I am sick of this Anxiety ****! Let me set this up for you. Two weeks ago I felt really good. I took Cialis on a friday night and we had qucky sex Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning and then on Sunday night we had some nice long dirty sex. I felt pretty good all the next week. My wife started a new job and has been stressed out a bit so we have not attempted sex since. I felt good since. My drive was slowly coming back to, still not where it used to be, and as long as I was on Cialis, I was getting erections just laying in bed with wife night. One night my wife was stressed out and tired, the kids where in bed, so we took a hot bath together and I gave her a back rub, there was no intention of having sex and out of no where I got an erection. So why am I having all this performance anxiety the last three days. It is really becoming annoying. It makes me paranoid that I will not "get it up", never have sex again, ect. The last time I took Cialis was three nights ago. I woke up with the usual morning erectin, wife went to work. I had anxiety really bad, so while I was in the shower I started thinking of sex with the wife to see what happend. It took about 5 minutes but I did obtain an erection. We are planning on have sex tonight, which could be why my anxiety is bad today. I will take my Cialis later today. I will probably take it around 5 or 6, so when the kids go to bed at 8 it should be well into my system. So here's the question. Apparently my libido is working pretty good. So as long as I relax and "enjoy" my wifes company I could have all the anxiety in the world, have my heart racing like it will jump out of my chest, but with the Cialis in me everything will rise to the occasion, right? I have been on Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra--I like Cialis the best--Since January. I have enver had an occasion where it did not work, so why am I still having all the performance anxeity??
I think your performance anxiety is related to failed attempts/ED in the past. Everytime that you think that you are about to have sex with your wife, something in the back of your mind goes into overdrive with the fear of failure.

You have mentioned in the past about having low testosterone. Do you take any meds for anxiety?

I currently take Levitra and have a drawer full of it; I am considering trying Cialis since it is more time released and I am not on the drug's schedule.

What do you like more about Cialis than Levitra?
I like Cialis better. I am on Testim for low T, which started all this in the first place. I am not on anything for the anxiety, for fear of it killing my sex drive.
Hopefully with the Testim and Cialis you can overcome the mental part of the equation. I wish that I had more to offer.

You had mentioned before in another thread that your wife was not crazy about you taking sexual performance enhancing meds. Has that changed or does taking meds contribute to your anxiety?
We had a long talk and she is OK with Cialis. She now understands what I am going through. The weekend turned out to be pretty good. I still have anxiety but not as bad. Your right, my mind keeps reverting back to all the failures,ed, and loss of sex drive. I have a hard time keeping the mind on the positive instead of the negative. I guess it will take some time.
Just my 2 cents... seriously I've had that now for like the last few years & it is definitely just too much thinkin (I take zoloft for panic attacks)... the cialis is great but i get erections easily which can be tuff in public!

Take care... Dave!
