    Yeah I’ve had those hypomania days they’re rare and don’t happen frequently. I had one day earlier in recovery where it felt like I was on MDMA listening to music. I still have no arousal and a little bit of ahedonia and like you minor lingering symptoms and weak erections.

    The problem I have is that porn is the thing that keeps terrible anxiety at bay. It dissipates the panic but then I feel so lousy afterwards; depressed, ashamed, knowing that I've let my family down. Taking hours away from work and family time just to try and keep anxiety away is clearly just trading in one demon for another. It's just a big cycle of doom. So I'm going to ride the panic attacks this time and try and use exercise and music to beat this thing.

    I lasted several months once but then had bad news about my health and relapsed. I'm determined not to let that happen again. All I want is to get back to having a healthy mind and I know there's a fight ahead.

    I have more or less been in a permanent flatline for years because of intermittent fapping and binging and am still flatlining at 18.5 months. Things are looking good I hope and believe at two years to worst will be behind me. Feel more functional than I have done in a long time.

    Extra:

    1- Poor assessment of risks, dangers (Not studying for an exam but feels OK)
    2- Lots of frustration, preferring setting and being sad instead of trying and working to solve problems.
    3- Feels like everybody is rude to you, while they are not
    4- Criticizing everything, even if it's minor.

    Yup. Agreed. And during those surges, I don't know what to do with myself.
