Thanks, PeterPanther. Thing is, even if she believes that I'm still attracted to her, she is convinced that taking a pill is the easy way out, a "band aid approach". She doesn't think I have a physiological problem...and the truth is, maybe I don't. But whether it is physiological or psychological --- or, most likely, a combination of the two -- I have found a way to resolve it, and I just don't understand what's wrong with an easy solution. Anyway, as I said in my reply to another post, I think we have at least a tentative agreement on how to proceed. If cutting down on drinking and continuing therapy for a couple of months to deal with the anxiety element don't work, I suspect she'll come around. We shall see. Anyway, thanks again for your input. I really do appreciate it.View Thread
