Having Suicidal Thoughts After Being Diagnosed With Peyronie's Disease

4 Comment On This Article

I was diagnosed with Peyronie's disease 3 months ago. My fiance has left me, the doctor was very unprofessional, in his words " you have peyronie's disease come back and see me in a year good bye".

I've lost the ability to have a love life, lost the girl of my dreams, and think constantly about my problem, and yes have had Suicidal Thoughts.

Someone please tell me what to do. what will help me to just get me back to being my old self.

I very sorry to hear about your situation but I applaud you for reaching out. That is always the first step and the first step is the most important one.

I wish I could say I'm surprised to hear about your doctor's attitude but even though the awareness of Peyronie's has improved drastically in the last few years this is unfortunately still too common, both among the professionals and public.

I strongly recommend you try to find another doctor, someone with experience of treating men with Peyronie's. I do not recommend specific doctors but APDA (Association of Peyronie's Advocates) has Physician Finder Opens in new window symbol on their website that you may find helpful. While this article can hopefully help you to prepare for your next appointment.

There is no cure for Peyronie's but there are number of treatment options available. You don't say anything about your condition, i.e. is it mild, moderate or severe, but the good news is that you are in the early stage of the disease and the sooner you react the more options you have and the better results you can expect. This article compares the most common Peyronie's treatments today. I hope it can help you to identify which option may be best suited for your condition.

It is very important not to ignore the emotional side of the disease. Getting Peyronie's is a great blow to any man and difficult feelings and depression is quite common. Suicidal thoughts however are very serious and something that needs to be addressed immediately. Please confide in a trusted friend or family member but also consider seeking professional help. We all need help to get through big blows in our lives and you have been through some big blows in a short period of time.

I'm very sorry to hear about your break-up but if your fiancé left for this reason only then she may not have been the right women to share a long life full of ups and downs (as life tends to be). You of course need your time to grieve your relationship but don't make it let you lose sight of what you need to do now. Now you need to concentrate on your condition and your mental state. And when the time is right you can start dating again. The real girl of your dreams is likely to be still out there.

It is very important to keep things in perspective where Peyronie's is concerned. There is a popular saying that says something like “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”. I find this quite fitting description when dealing with Peyronie's disease. Pain is what the disease does to you, suffering is what you do to yourself.

There are things that can be done and taking action, i.e. researching your options, seeing "proper" doctor and starting some form of a treatment, can help you to get back some control of the situation.

I hope this is of some help. You can contact me anytime if you have any questions or if you just need to vent. There are also number of online forum that you may find helpful, just make sure you are familiar with the pros and cons of forums before visiting any!

I wish you all the best in the future and I would appreciate it if you keep me posted how you get on.

Kind regards,

I’m in your same position my friend. I found your article because I was searching peyronies and suicide because I’m feeling the same way.

I’m still super young and have a wonderful beautiful wife that I feel just horrible that I have let down in the most awful way with this disease. I’m trying to tell myself that I have so much more to bring to this woman than a broken dick but man does this hit you in the masculinity department.

I had an NDE when I was in my early 20s and got to cross over and see that so much of what we battle with here in this world just does not matter over there at all. I realized that unconditional love is the vibration on which we communicate over there and I set a path out here to learn how to live with unconditional love in my life and with my wife everyday and in every way.

I’m not perfect and now I’m not even close but I know that a lot of men think they are great lovers by the size of their penis but yet they have not taken the time to give their partners an orgasm in years.

I guess what I’m trying to say is make do with what you have. Live life with love. Take the time to find the right girl and spend some time learning new ways to show your love. I think you will be surprised to know that you still have many ways that you can connect and might even be really surprised by what you find on this journey.

I ask myself everyday I wake up now with my broken dick am I going to let this determine the man I am or am I going to own this and try my best to learn really who I am and what I have to offer. I have this one life here to live so I’m going to live it.

Broken dick or not I still know how to love. I love all of you and my heart goes out to all of us that have this well.... enlightenment. I guess is a great name for Peyronie’s.

Hang in there it gets better when you wake up and decide that today is the day that I choose to make it better. Write to me if you want my email. I’m here for anybody that needs a little help and love.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and your uplifting words. I’m sorry to hear that you have Peyronie’s as such a young age, but your approach is very mature for someone “still super young” and I’m sure many men will find it helpful.

    I totally agree with you. We men are more than a “dick” to a women and making love is about so much more than penis size. Many women have contacted me over the year, looking for advice how they can support their partners and in all those cases it is not the sex as such they miss, it is the “man” himself and the intimacy they miss.

    There are so many ways to make love other than intercourse (most men with Peyronie’s can still have intercourse as well).

    I wish you all the best with your Peyronie’s. If someone is interested in getting in direct contact with you, they can contact me through this website and I will “introduce” the two of you.

    Kind regards,

Dammit stylist! You made me tear up...a LOT. Probably I needed to though, so maybe thanking you is more appropriate. I suppose it’s good to sometimes confirm that we are still alive and kicking... and hopefully feeling some gratitude about it (which I do). Wow, a hell of a lot of hurt goes along with this, uhm... enlightenment that we share, doesn’t it?

It can be kind of overwhelming feeling it when it comes out, but I think it’s much better to do that than to bury it. So yeah, sincere thanks for sharing what you did. It is clear to me that you are a genuine ambassador of good.
