Trying NOT to get too excited

My boyfriend started a workout routine about a week ago. It seems to be helping him feel better although he's been tired and sore. He apologized for being tired which I didn't really care about. I just said it was no big deal. I hoped he felt better soon. He's always tired so it's nothing new, but he tagged on to that apology by saying, 'Well, yeah you know I'm trying to see if I can get some vigor back and help my libido.'

>>don't take adderal...you have to agree (well..you don't have to) with dirty that while it might take an HL and make them more so...it probably won't do that for an LL...right????...<<

Oh, I wasn't really planning on it. I am not doing anything else to myself until I get the pseudo-fetus out of my body.

What a drag it is getting old.

Ok now you got me on to the Rolling Stones, so in keeping with that I would give Adderall a try. But remember, you can't always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need.

DMAM,

I'm doing ok. Pretty much the same as always. I could use more energy, that's for sure. I guess there's a reason why suburban moms are stealing their kid's prescriptions and calling it "mother's little helper."

I doubt I'll try another drug just to see if the side effects help me. I'm tired of feeling like I need "fixing."

Hi,

Hope your doing well. I wouldn't call Aderrall a libido booster per say. I have come to a belief that libido is mostly a state of mind. But thats just my opinion. What I will say about Aderrall is that it does have some interesting effects. It can provide lots of energy as well as give you somewhat of a euphoric feeling. Those two things combigned could lead to an increase in Libido.

If your inclined to feel sexually excited when you are energized then it might work for you. I could be on my death bed and still be sexually excited. (see "The Man who Loved Women"). If you are in a good mood (due to the euphoric effect) then you are likely to feel sexually excited. Energized and in a good mood well little dirty wants to play.

But if there are other things going on, relationship issues etc. then I'm not sure what effect it might have and it sure won't be a magic bullet. The expectations may be to high. I could see you taking a pill and having dh come by every 5 mins asking "you aroused yet?".

I will say this much for the drug though, I wish I would have had access to it when I was groing up. I used it when I was working on my MBA. I spit out research papers in record time.

DMAM,

Do you think adderall should be the next drug I should try, since the restless leg drug didn't do the trick?

Thanks Miranda! If I've learned anything from reading this board it's been perspective. Although I haven't been able to read a male LL perspective I've tried very hard to understand LL. In the end, I can only change my behavior. I think it's great he's making an effort to change his or at least explore/notice other ways he can relate to me.

I had gone away last weekend on a retreat and last night he told me he had really missed me. I kind of laughed and told him he was being silly I was only gone for a couple days, but he was serious. He missed my sleeping beside him, holding hands while we walked the dogs and kissing my cheek before he went off to work. He missed my physical presence. This is the first time he's verbally expressed himself with any level of intimacy before. I just smiled and told him I missed him too. If anything I find it extremely interesting.
