Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Thanks for the comments Mike! I'm not at all "recovered" at this point, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel (but like you said, I'm fully accepting that I may never be "cured", just symptom-free for long periods). In fact I had minor flares yesterday and today. Both due to very stressful th...

I've had almost a week now of seriously feeling GREAT CPPS-wise! I'm knocking on wood and writing this...BUT, this is the best I've felt hands down since ...

Re: Massive flare up with 8 weeks till wedding...

Hey Joe, I can totally empathize with what you're going through. I'm not sure if this helps but I said I was a nervous wreck before my wedding, but for some reason, the week before all my anxiety vanished! It's like I got to the point of no return but I didn't care anymore! I don't know what it was ...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

urine-chart.jpg Desire to urinate less than twice per day and/ or producing urine darker than color 3 in the chart indicate severe dehydration; the individual must start drinking immediately. Thanks for the info here. I think I'm okay actually. I may not have been keeping track of my water intake e...

#5 - Same with me too. I reasoned that it has to do with all the vitamins I have been taking. I'm sure Prosta Q has something to do with this.
Weird because I don't even take any of that stuff!

Re: New here- Here's my Story

I'm having some interesting times with my CPPS. I've been doing 15 minutes of meditation, almost daily for about a month now. I skipped it maybe 3-4 times. I think this helps, SLIGHTLY with my symptoms. It's not huge but I believe it's worth doing. I bought this audio that is supposed to help your b...

Re: Massive flare up with 8 weeks till wedding...

I remember in the weeks/months leading up to getting married. I was a wreck. I didn't have CPPS back then but if I did it would have flared to no end! I'm now divorced and I look back and realize why I was so stressed at the time. I didn't really want to do it. I got married for all the wrong reason...

Re: Can alcohol relieve CPPS symptoms?

Red wine seems to slightly help my symptoms, but obviously not in the way of curing.

Every other kind of alcohol seems to be neutral to negative.

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Added meditation and power of now to my daily routine a week ago. Probably coincidentally, I've also had the toughest week CPPS-wise that I've had in a long time. I'm trying to relax and let things go, been consistent with exercise, stretching, internal massage (3x/week), but I just keep flaring and...

Re: 100% Cured: An Unconventional Treatment

This kind of thing aggravates me. There's NO scientific basis to this, just hearsay. To say "God cured me" is misleading, if you yourself took actions to cure yourself. Did Got give you this disease then, only to cure you later? What would be the point of this? I just can't stand to see something so...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks, Webslave, I'm adding that to my list. It seems to go nicely with the Power of Now. Another book I read a while back that I plan to reread is The Art of Living Conciously by Nathaniel Branden. Some gold nuggets in that one too.

I truly think this kind of focus is my main ticket out of this.

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Here's one thing that is VERY apparent to me, only over the last 6-8 months but it seems like this clue would help me figure out how to solve my problem in this area: You know how when lots of people get nervous, they feel "butterflies in their stomach"? Well that was me for most of my life. Somethi...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Nother update. I went through another 2-3 week period of improvement. It wasn't major, but it was noticeable. The pain in my urethra was way down, mostly not even there. The little twinges that I used to get regularly really were not happening. My bladder pain was even a little more mild. Just a few...

Re: Hello all! New to the forum but not new to CPPS

Hey Yoink, I'm happy that you posted again, but sorry that your symptoms seem to keep coming back. I'm in a very similar boat. I had about 2 weeks there in June where I was seriously feeling much better, and making progress, even was able to ejaculate a couple times with almost no pain after (hasn't...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Hey Davy, I appreciate the words of encouragement. The low libido is not a mental thing for me. I have had sex since I got this, and I was literally really sore for a week. Since then, I just haven't been excited about sex, even though my libido waxes and wanes. It's mostly fairly low but ocassional...
