I'm gonna go for a while

I'm gonna go and write my 10,000 words and leave the site alone for a while. That includes lurking and reading posts. I hope you all have a nice Christmas, you deserve one. Anyone interested in the book idea I hope you will also write your parts, it'd be nice to write it and help others (including dismissive doctors etc) to see what it's like to deal with this day to day. I personally hope I can write it and leave it in the rear view mirror.

Yoth, I've decided I'm not going to contribute anything to the book. I don't think I'm a representative example of a typical SPS case. As RogerwotcherJ so often delighted in pointing out, my life consists of failures and inadequacies that fall far outside the scope of my penis. I'm a systemic failure. 

I'm not in the mood to write at the moment, and it's also difficult for me to tell my story on a personal level. It would end up reading like an essay or polemic, and I wouldn't be able to keep wider social topics from creeping into it. In that respect, I feel like my story would provide grist for heaps of insults. To be honest, I think people who can provide a more sympathetic case need to contribute, those more level headed than I am. My concern is that the populace at large will attribute our problems purely and strictly to homosexuality. That's always been the reaction I've gotten the very rare times I've broached this topic irl. 

Im not trying to dissuade anyone or be a stick in the mud, I think you should still do it. But I don't think my story would offer much. The older I get, the less I care about anything except peace and quiet. I'm probably leaving as well. I'm weary of everything. Take care and best wishes to all.

Wait, what? I've never heard of that or experienced that. Mostly, the friends in my life I have talked to about this attribute it to "you watch too much porn" or "it's all in your head".

Yeah I'm having a bad night too but please don't leave, this community is barely alive as it is!

@Klingsor you have a very interesting outlook on things and you speak extraordinarily well so I think your story would be fantastic to tell. We are all different people with a commonality that has brought us together. I feel that these differences are what could make this book work.

I understand, though, if it's not for you. Hopefully you'll at least stick around and philosophize life with us.

I'm just curious what exact differences you guys have.

We come from different parts of the world, different cultures, different socioeconomic statuses, different relationship experiences, different struggles in life (aside from SPS).

I would dare say that without this common issue we would have a slim to none chance of ever speaking to each other and yet we have many interesting dialogues on here. While many are SPS related many are also "life" related.

To me, that's what makes the collective book an interesting opportunity. People could see that SPS could affect anyone they know. It's not stereotyped to a certain type of person.
