I have not made it past 7 days often. the sexual unavailability of my wife is its own emotional stress that PMO relieves temporarily and incompletely. As I help my wife deal with her trauma by being silent on the sex thing esp. when she is sick, i get frustrated and hopeless that my efforts are not visibly bearing fruits. so them more PMO. Wife's trauma was the result of a bad mindset, faking enjoyment of sex for 7 years of our marriage. now if sex isnt initiated by her, the memories of the 7 years living in her body resurface and she cant emotionally handle that. she is also working through major depression. I am fairly certain that as the overall health of my wife imporves and good sex reprograms the muscle memory of her body and mine, the PMO will naturally fade away. it appears to me that my test is simply patience and perseverence. we are both doing everything we can for ourselves, but the stress on me has not been tolerable hence PMO whenever it seems the current dry spell will endure for longer. sex when she is healthy is around 1-2 times every two weeks. i feel so scummy and its always a two day binge when i fail. i dont know.
