Hi, I am a 56 yrs old married man with diabetes. I've had diabetes for 12 yrs so far and I have been feeling less motive of doing anything. I work mostly 40 hrs weekly and I'm a machine operator. I have stand no sit job because all I do is check the credit cards and see if they are correct. My life has been seemingly dull for this 12 yrs and I just don't know what I should do? I lack the courage to take walk in my neighborhood in the summer. I am always feeling down or lack attention to do something. Recently, my doctor told me that some of sperm has been leaking out with my urine. I felt no pain or seen any white substance whenever I urinated. So I went to a doctor whose major is in the sexual areas. He told me to take VIAGRA only two days that I desired intercourse, a free sample. As soon I told my wife about the medicine, she threw it away. Generally that sounds dumb or weird, but there is a reason to it. I am a heart patient. I've had two heart attacks and many time I've had the heart stents put into me. My wife said to me not to take the VIAGRA due to my heart issue. So I am feeling lost, I don't know what to do or what is my problem? Am I in depression or lack the sexual desire because of my diabetes, I don't know. I know that if I am to stay like this way then there is no wake up call for me.
