Coping Strategies for Couples with Peyronie's Disease

Updated on April 28, 2011


There is a story in the old testament, where Elijah runs away from the evil queen Jezebel. He walks over 300 miles and hides in a cave on Mt. Sinai. God asks him what he is doing there, and Elijah replies, "I've done everything for you, but this woman is trying to kill me and I'm the only one serving you that is left." God told him basically that he was fired as the main prophet, and that he would be replaced by Elisha and 6,000 others.

Elijah felt like he was the only one that was suffering, and he was all alone. It's the old self pity party - It's all about me.

When I was afflicted with Peyronie's disease, I went into depression and had a big self pity party. I felt all alone and isolated. Actually I was alienating myself from the most important person in my life - My wife, my partner and the love of my life. I want you to know that you are not alone.

You have a lot of company. Auxilium Pharmaceuticals is conducting a Phase III clinical study for Peyronie's disease, and they state that up to 400,000 men a year are afflicted by this disease in the United States and Europe. That is getting close to half a million men a year.

There is a forum for all of you men and your wives to share with others and still maintain your privacy.

The largest, most active Peyronie's Disease support organization in existence.

Ladies, here you will find that special, private, place to share and offer support with other women that may need to express and get guidance for their feelings of emotional turmoil.

I have voluntarily given up my privacy by building this website. I decided that there was no reason to live in shame over something that I had no control over.

The best thing you can do is work together and be pro-active in your treatment. I believe in the power of prayer. You may call it mind over matter or the power of positive thinking. Whatever your beliefs are, a positive attitude and mental outlook are essential to healing. Picture your penis straight and healthy, in your minds eye and keep that vision at the forefront of your treatment program. When you are wearing your traction device - see that image. When you are applying the topical gel - see that image. Talk with each other and do not neglect each other. My wishes and hopes for you are for success in your treatment and a return to a healthy and normal intimate life together.
