Doctor :   Hi
User :   I have big problems
User :   and I don't know if there is a solution
Doctor :  
User :   I am addicted to masturbation
User :   and I cannot control it
Doctor :  
it is not a problem
User :   I'm triggered very easily
Doctor :   masturbation does not cause any harm physically
User :   but I have damaged my penis in the process
User :   by masturbating frequently
User :   which is the other big problem
User :   I cannot accept the way my penis looks right now
User :   it looks pretty bad
Doctor :   what has happened?
Doctor :   the foreskin damaged?
User :   I masturbated using my hand and the skin is loose and wrinkly
User :   and many spider veins have appeared
Doctor :  
User :   also I rubbed my penis head too hard and that part is damaged too
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
the skin of the penis head has wrinkled ?
User :   yes
User :   and inflammed
User :   red
Doctor :   is it painful?
User :   yes there is sill some pain
User :   still
Doctor :   any visible wound?

User :   my biggest problem is that I cannot accept the way it looks right now and also I cannot control my desire and it seems like every time I masturbate I will cause more damage to my penis
Doctor :   ok

User :   yes I think there is a cut on the penis head
Doctor :   ok
User :   I don't know if there is a solution to my big problem
User :   also, during the day, it seems like I feel the worst
User :   like there is no hope
Doctor :   there is a solution

User :   and during the day I have bad thoughts
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes I feel that for some reason during night time I feel a little better
User :   but during the daytime I feel so awful
User :   like there is no hope
Doctor :   k.
User :   and I don't want to be stuck with this problem
User :   I wish so much there is a cure
Doctor :   yeah there is a cure

Doctor :  
and it needs to be approached in right way
Doctor :   first thing is appearance of spider veins indicates more blood supply to the part indirectly indicating the part is muscular and strong
User :   ok
Doctor :  
this is very much evident in the arms and shoulders of the body builders
Doctor :  
but they are more visible as the penile skin is loose
User :   yes they were not there before
User :   and I know I caused them to appear
Doctor :  
penile skin needs to be loose for the reason it needs to expand while it gets erect
User :   yes
User :   but right now it just looks so awful
User :   because before it looks okay
Doctor :   if its too lose than think of the reduction surgery for the cosmetic reasons
User :   how much can the cosmetic surgery restore?
Doctor :   penis is a performance organ not a cosmetic organ. it will be just restored so that the extent it will not cause problem in erection

Doctor :  
if the skin gets tight than the erection will be painful
User :   but the other problem is that even if my penis is restored, I might damage it again
User :   because I know I cannot control myself
User :   and I always have this fear of damaging my penis
Doctor :   why cant it be controlled?
Doctor :  
it can be controlled and you can do it
User :   I don't know
User :   I get triggered so easily
User :   and I will feel very uncomfortable if I don't masturbate
Doctor :   you dont know but i know you can learn to control your habit and you will do it
Doctor :  
for that you need little help and support
User :   it's like an addiction
Doctor :   yes addiction can be deaddicted
Doctor :   it is possible
User :   ok
User :   yes how can I suppress it?
User :   and not get triggered so easily
Doctor :  
you need an professional help as by self it is not possible as you have got addicted to it
Doctor :  
a psychiatrist is the right person to help you out with the cognitive behavior therapy and bio feed back techniques
User :   what is the normal behavior for a man?
User :   in this regard
Doctor :   as far as a person is satisfied himself with what he is doing it is considered normal. once a person appreciates himself that he is not happy with what he is doing than it is considered as abnormal to that person
User :   ok
User :   I think for me I have used this as a way to relieve stress or whenever I am in a bad mood
User :   but I think I have taken it too far
User :   because I have masturbated very frequently
Doctor :   probably
Doctor :   so that it has started affecting you now
Doctor :  
not late
User :   which was not a problem before, but now I have started to damaged my penis
Doctor :   yeah
User :   and so I'm stuck in this cycle
Doctor :   so the treatment goal for now is 1, stop the habit, 2 restore the cosmetic appearance.

User :   right
User :   that would be great if I can achieve that
Doctor :   first thing is to stop the habit and as i told to break the cycle it needs a professional help.

User :   ok
User :   see a psychiatrist?
Doctor :   yeah consult him
Doctor :  
once you feel the change in your habit
User :   but I think since I have masturbated frequently, maybe once a day or once 2 days, it is so hard to break this habit
User :   and my inner self will always tell me, no problem go ahead and masturbate
User :   so I'm always fighting with myself
Doctor :   it is the work of the psychiatrist to change your inner self and that is what he is expertized at
User :   because before I have also tried to not masturbate so frequently
User :   and I was not successful
User :   I'm always enticed into masturbation
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes, that is why I think I have big problems and don't know if there is a solution
User :   I wish so much I can just have a normal life
User :   just be a normal person
Doctor :  
User :   I will need help
User :   I really need help
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
u need help
Doctor :   now did you decide to consult a psychiatrist?
User :   yes but the other big problem is that during the daytime, I feel like there is no hope
User :   and I start to think about the easy solution
Doctor :   psychiatrist will take care of that also
User :   as I am starting to have those thoughts
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes and I'm always fighting with myself
Doctor :   ok
User :   I start to think about the easy way out
Doctor :   no easy ways to addiction
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
once you meet the psychiatrist you will feel how easy it is to leave the habit
User :   any ways to help me when I start to have bad thoughts and feel like there is no hope?
Doctor :   if you get those thoughts
Doctor :  
follow this method
User :   ok
Doctor :  
take a deep breath and hold it for as long as you can than you release
Doctor :   try this for 4 or 5 times every time you get the thoughts
Doctor :  
the thoughts will disappear
Doctor :  
User :   ok
Doctor :  
is there any thing else i can help you with
User :   by the way, I'm taking medication right now
User :   but I don't think it has helped me much
Doctor :  
what medication?
User :   Zoloft
Doctor :  
medicine alone is not sufficient
Doctor :  
it is part of a treatment and not complete treatment
User :   ok
Doctor :  
treatment is complete with the drug zoloft, than breathing technique and yoga therapy
User :   is there a solution for every kind of problem?
Doctor :  
the psychiatrist will guide you through the other programs. he will asses and decide when to introduce what program and when to withdraw
User :   ok
Doctor :   yes there is a solution for most of the problem
User :   I know that some people have lived without a penis
Doctor :   yeah
User :   but I just don't know why I cannot accept it
Doctor :   when they can why cant you?
User :   right
User :   I ask myself the same question
User :   but my inner self just cannot accept it and I feel so strongly about it
User :   I cannot bear looking at my penis right now
Doctor :  
now again why you keep repeating the same question
Doctor :   when there is the possibility of cure
Doctor :  
why you are running away from it
Doctor :  
go for it
Doctor :  
that is life
Doctor :  
no point in simply thinking.
User :   so do you suggest that I first consult with a psychiatrist and then perhaps a plastic surgeon?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   after consulting the psychiatrist let us know what happened and what advise he gave
Doctor :  
are yo there?
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   yes
User :   ok
User :   thank you very much for your help
User :   I really appreciate it
Doctor :   please fill the feed back form
User :   done
Doctor :   i wish your problem will be solved very soon
Doctor :  
Be positive and always think positive
Doctor :   thanks for consulting health care magic
Doctor :  
bye for now
